Do you know yet which day you will be at the Asheville quilt show? If so, I'll try to come on that day. DH is no longer in a wheelchair (thank God)since I talked him into going to a fitness center. It only took about two weeks and he was able to walk around again.

You will LOVE Linda Cantrell and her work. I have a lot of pictures, as she came to a local guild down in NC and did a class I was able to attend. There's also two quilt shops in Burnsville.

There's a Quilt Trail here in Tennessee as well--I didn't know NC had jumped on the bandwagon. In any case, enjoy the trip! Lavinia-TN

Sounds like quite a full time. If you've never attended a talk by Linda Cantrell you are in for a treat. She has an irrepressible sense of humor. In addition to her gorgeous Jacobean applique she has done a series of very humorous quilts with people, animals, local store fronts etc. Quite a few years ago she did one depicting the "Life and Times of Sunbonnet Sue". It's satirical and must be viewed in close detail. There is a bit of something naughty about it. I haven't seen her more recent stuff.

Biltmore house and gardens are well worth several visits over a lifetime. Several rooms have recently been restored and open to the public. For your first visit I suggest that you do an organized tour with a docent. The whole house and whole gardens are too much for a single day. There are some incredible tapestries that any fiber artist could spend hours inspecting.

Macon County around Franklin has been working on a quilt trail in which many members of my guild are participating. Let us hope it cools off a bit for your trip.

Cotton Club has moved and is on NC 25 Hendersonville Road (Exit 50 from I-40 going South). It's not far from that intersection.

Well, I bit the bullet and paid the $$ for the quilt tour and show in Ashville, N.C. --part of it is a presentation by Mary Stori about wool collage and embroidery, and embellishments.
It sounds like so much fun.
Also thee will be Linda Cantrell and a trunk show and lecture on Applique.
JANE--on Aug. 9th (Mon.) we travel to Burnsville for the Western N.C. quilt trail. didn't know there was such a thing.
We are also going to the Ashville Cotton Co. and then on to the Biltmore estate.
I went to the Cotton Co. once, it was in a shopping center on the top of a hill, don't remember if I bought anything or not.
