Quilting in Historic Jonesborough

“Some stories seem to be made out of whole cloth. Others are like the Tennessee quilts on sale in Jonesborough’s many craft shops. They weave together past, present, fact, and fiction in a tight design both dazzling and unforgettable.” —Smithsonian

Follow the Quilt Trail through Historic Jonesborough, Tennessee. We invite you to take a trip back in time as you slow down and enjoy the scenic countryside and quilting
pride of our mountain region. The Appalachian Resource Conservation & Development Council’s Quilt Trail winds around Johnson City, Kingsport, and Bristol, and other regions of East Tennessee. For your pleasure, artistry of the traditional quilt on a backdrop of historic and beautiful barns can be seen on the tour.

Take your time, pack a lunch or better yet stop in Jonesborough for mouth-watering samples of our local flavors. You will find a variety of shops to fill any quilting need. The stores listed below contain finished quilts or patchwork, appliqué, and other items for quilters of any range.

Tennessee Quilts proudly hosts the QuiltFest (3 days of quilting classes and related events) each July and frequently offers classes taught by nationally recognized quilting instructors. The event offers classes for all levels and also includes the Hoffman Challenge traveling exhibit inside the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center.
