Fiber Art and Quilt Show take over Hub City

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Pine Belt Quilters presented their 14th show at the Lake Terrace Convention Center October 5 – 7.

One of the unique features of the show is the Hattiesburg Visitor Center Challenge, in which participants must produce a quilt using the theme "Find Your True South".

"This is our largest show in the state. We put this show on every two years to show the public what is being done in the field of quilting," said Co-Chair Gloria Green. "Our goal is to maintain the interest of quilting, the interest in historic quilts and hopefully to groom a few new quilters."

Quilters from more than 65 cities in five states entered a total of 400 quilts to compete for special recognition in the judged show.

"I think the thing that always impresses me is the absolute, unbelievable, creativity of the human spirit. Everyone is different, everyone is special in its own way," said Green.

General information and details about the show are available HERE.
