Quilts On Main

The second annual Quilts on Historic Main Street, St. Charles, MO., will be held this year on Saturday, September 6, 2003, from nine a.m. to 5 p.m. If you love quilts and want to see hundreds of quilts hanging outdoors on twelve blocks of circa 1870's buildings, you'll love Quilts on Main! Main Street overlooks the scenic Missouri River and is the place where Lewis and Clark began their expedition. Main Street was the perfect location to link history with the lore of the quilt.

Quilts On Main

Last year's event was a blockbuster-thousands of quilt lovers flocked to St. Charles to celebrate quilting. Quilts of all eras and types-from applique to "friendship" signature quilts-were displayed from fences, balconies, and roofs. St. Charles has been called the "Williamsburg of the Midwest". The 150 vintage buildings have been preserved and house outstanding restaurants, bed-and-breakfasts, and quaint shops. You can purchase everything from calico to lamps or fudge on Main Street. The atmosphere is enchanting and their motto is: "The past is our present to you."

This year, features include a men's quilt display so we can see how much men contribute to the art of the quilt. Another highlight will be a collection of Civil War quilts. Local area guilds will have their quilts on display and will sell raffle tickets.

For quilters and history lovers, you can't beat Quilts on Main. It's a quilter's dream to see an entire street awash in quilts.
