Tennessee Quilt Shows & Events

Quilts and their designs have changed over time, reflecting the influences of geography, historical events, technological innovations, economic circumstances, ethnic traditions, and personal aesthetics. Tennessee has a rich quilting history, and is bound with a wealth of opportunities to discover this quilting heritage. Explore the many quilt shows, shop hops, and exhibitions Tennessee has to offer. Also, be sure to visit the many art galleries and museums throughout the state.

Quilters Resources prides itself in being your most comprehensive resource for quilting related information on the internet; however, please understand that circumstances beyond our control may limit the accuracy of posted information. I am not always made aware of event changes and/or cancellations. As such, please be sure to verify dates, times, and locations prior to traveling to any event.

If you have an event addition and/or updated information, please e-mail all of the details (dates and time, name of show, location including complete address and state, website or Facebook page, contact information, and any additional information deemed necessary).
