The Ashe County Farmers Market will host a day of opportunity and fun, for folks to learn the art of quilting from 9:30 a.m.– 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 30.
Tents will be set up in the grassy area behind the shelter and quilters are encouraged to bring their machine and a chair (electricity available) to the free Class and Demonstration put on by individuals from the Quilt Guild and the ACFM’s own Doris Phillips. There will be kits available to purchase that day also.
The Quilt Guild will be showing off their beautiful quilt that they are raffling off and all proceeds from the raffle go towards supporting their efforts in the county. The Guild provide quilts and accessories to burn-out victims, children of domestic violence, the senior centers, military and other groups or victims.
If you would like to be apart of the Quilters Guild, please talk to any member for the times and date they meet.
Also, shop the market for all your produce need, crafts, baked goods, flowers, jewelry, nursery items, pottery, local photograph, fresh grass feed beef & pork and the ACFM accepts EBT/SNAP Cards and WIC Vouchers.
The Saturday market is open from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. and the Wednesday market is open from 8 a.m.–1 p.m.
