Independence Hall Quilters Oct. 22, 23 & 24 @ Ironstone

This weekend Ironstone Vineyards is delighted to have back with us the Independence Hall Quilters. Labeled the Mountain Heirloom Quilt Faire XXXIII, this talented group of ladies have taken over Ironstone's large Alhambra Music Room and filled it with quilts, wall hangings, wearable art, dolls, needle art and more.  There are several stunning club quilts available for sale for only $450.00 each as well as a quilt titled "Mountain Home" available all as a raffle prize.  Elsewhere throughout the facility are vendors offering anything and everything one can image that relates to quilts, quiltmaking and more.  There is a boutique, demonstrations, door prizes, a country store and vendor booths. 
Now, our favorite booth is just downstairs where you can buy a delightful antique plate or cup & saucer brimmed full of home made cookies and treats! And you get to keep the plate to fill again and pass along for the holidays.  I am amazed at the number of guests have already arrived to shop and seek out their favorite quilts on display. Actually we have met people today from all over the US.  Can't wait until tomorrow!

These are a few photos of the group setting up yesterday. 
Come out and take a look yourself...
