17th Annual Flint Festival of Quilts

The 17th Annual Flint Festival of Quilts is this weekend. A variety of themed quilts will be on display in eleven different Flint venues

Greg Fiedler is with the Greater Flint Arts Council.  He says some of the themes include a contemporary collection, multimedia quilts and Amish quilt making.

It’s important for Flint, because we have many famous quilters that came out of Flint, folks like Marty Lawrence whose famous for her original fabric design and dyes. We have Gwen Marston who lectures all over the world at quilting conventions.

Fiedler says there are over a thousand quilts on display. The exhibit will continue through November 3rd.
