Quilt Exhibit at Bessie Smith Hall

In conjunction with the AQS Quilt Week that happens in downtown Chattanooga, September 16-19, quilts will be displayed in Bessie Smith Hall for a couple of weeks around that time. Large quilts are preferred. The Hall has its own building security; there is only one entrance and it is locked unless the building is open for business. Stanchions will be in place in front of the quilts. If you want to have your quilt(s) displayed, please see Karen Danner.
