Airing of the Quilts, Smithville, part 2

Airing of the Quilts is based on an old European tradition.  Quilts were treasured possessions, essential for long winter nights.   After much wear and tear the ladies would “air” their quilts in the sunshine. See quilts displayed all over town on Saturday, November 7, 2009, from 10AM – 5 PM.  Smithville is located 13 miles East of Bastrop, and 110 miles West of Houston, off Hwy 71.    Smithville Chamber has more information about Smithville. There are many Bed and Breakfasts around town. The Katy House is one block from Main Street and will be displaying quilts. Many of the antique shops will have quilts for sale.

There is a raffle quilt called “Lapsided Log Cabin”.

Admission is free and it will be a photo opportunity.
