Tavern Quilt Guild members will display their creations Saturday in Heathsville.
The Quilt Show will be inside the Transportation Museum Building adjacent to Rice’s Hotel/Hughlett’s Tavern, said RH/HT executive director Corinne Anthony. An exceptional array of beautiful quilted artistry will be on display during this special annual event. Admission is by donation.
The farmers’ market will be held in the outdoor pavilion and grounds next to the Tavern. In addition to farm-fresh Northern Neck produce, locally-raised meat, fresh-baked bread, and plants and shrubs, shoppers will find many artisan crafts, said Anthony.
New vendors will include Capt. Tom’s Oyster Floats and EspeD’s Crafts, offering bracelets, earrings and beading supplies for crafters.
At 10:15 a.m., a walking tour of Heathsville’s Historic Town Square will leave from the Transportation Museum Building. Costumed RH/RT volunteers will lead a family-friendly tour of the Tavern, the old Northumberland courthouse and the old jail, ending at the Tavern’s antique carriage display.
The Tavern’s active artisan groups will be on-site for the day. This includes the Tavern Blacksmith Guild in the forge, the Spinners and Weavers Guild, the Woodworkers Guild, and the Quilters Guild. The Tavern Gift Shop also will be open. Breakfast and lunch foods will be for sale outside the Transportation Museum Building.
