Quilts and Canines
Quilts and Canines, an inaugural event, will be held at Foothills of the Smoky’s Quilt Shop (formerly Holloway’s Country Home) in Cosby on Saturday, September 15, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The community gathering will feature crafts, music, food and fun for everyone. A barbecue lunch will be available and all proceeds from the lunch will go to Steele Away Home for their rescue program. “We are excited about this event, “said Marie Bittinger, who with husband Doug, foster Steele Away Home dogs and are helping to organize the event. “We previously coordinated Treasures of Appalachia (a crafts consortium) on this property and when the new owner (Fredia Haley) expressed a desire to get to know the local community, we (along with Len and Verena Landrum) knew this would be the perfect venue. “Our passion is fostering dogs, and with medical bills and ongoing costs, we are excited to be able to collect funds for Steele Away Home. “We want to thank Stacey Dekker and family for their generosity in providing the barbecue lunch, “she continued. In addition to the craft, vintage items and information booths, the organization will have items for sale and a kissing (dog kissing!) booth (hugs welcome, too!). Crafters and Exhibitors have been invited to participate and can get an application at Foothills or the Cocke County Partnership’s Chamber/Tourism office. “David and Sharon McClary will be performing from noon til 2 p.m.,” said Cocke County Partnership’s Tourism Director Linda Lewanski, “We hope folks will get out and enjoy lunch and music, shop our craft booths and help out this worthy cause.”
