The Smoky Mountain Quilters Guild based in Franklin will host the North Carolina Quilting Symposium this year. The guild is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, and members want to share the love of quilting with the area. The Symposium event, “Stars Over The Smokies,” takes place June 7-10, on the Western Carolina University campus in Cullowhee. Activities include a quilt show with more than 340 quilts, classes, lectures, vendors, a craft boutique stocked with member items, and a small quilt silent auction. Several guilds will be on the grounds to sell raffle tickets for opportunity quilts. The quilt show, boutique and vendors will be in the Hinds University Center. Other activities take place in different classroom buildings. Directional signs will be posted.
