SQTM presents Cherokee Crazy Quilters Guild of Canton show, Mar-May
The Southeastern Quilt & Textile Museum is excited to present their third exhibit, the wonderful work of the Cherokee Crazy Quilters Guild of Canton, GA. We would like to invite you and your family to the opening of the exhibit on Saturday,... March 2nd - admission will be free throughout the day. The Cherokee Crazy Quilters began with nine members in 1976, holding their first meeting in the home of Mrs. Lutz. As the guild's numbers grew to as many as fifty-three, they began to meet at the Chalcedonia Church in Canton, GA, eventually coming to hold their weekly meetings at the historical "Rock Barn." They continue to meet weekly, hosting fat quarter swaps, secret sister, classes, demos, field trips, quilt camps, and sew for charities. One of the many works on display is the guild's "Cherokee Tales," which hung at the SQTM's exhibit at the state capitol in Atlanta in January of 2011. The quilt was also featured at the National Trail of Tears meeting held at the Funk Heritage Center, Reinhardt University, Waleska, GA. The fabric for this quilt was anonymously donated to a member of the guild, Mary Stevens, in response to an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that featured the quilts that Stevens makes for pediatric cancer patients. The exhibit will open March 2nd and run through May 25th, 2013. The SQTM is open Thursdays and Fridays, noon-6PM, and Saturdays 10AM-4PM; admission is $3 per person.
Roopville Homecoming featured in state's widest-circulated magazine
More great exposure for our local tourism attractors: The August issue of EMC's Georgia Magazine (the state's highest-circulation magazine) will feature an article about small town homecoming celebrations and Roopville's Homecoming is included. Roopville is not only among only three towns featured, but it is featured first (with the lead artwork from Roopville) and is the only one of the three in North Georgia. If people come to Roopville, they come to Carroll County. If they come to Carroll County, we all stand to benefit. The beauty of tourism!
Sunnyside Cafe Featured in GA Music Mag
Carrollton's own Sunnyside Cafe/Moonshadow Music Hall (477 Rome St., Carrollton) is the first venue/restaurant featured in an article on page 40 of the Summer, 2012, issue of Georgia Music Magazine. The entire issue is about the music-food connection here in the Peach State. The first page of the article has a great pic of Zac Brown and several others performing on the Moonshadow stage. This is great coverage for our community, its food and its musicians, in the only statewide magazine devoted to Georgia music!
