TOMPKINSVILLE, KY - The Old Mulkey Meetinghouse State Historic Site will host the 4th Annual Celebration of Quilts and Quilting, Fri-Sat-Sun, 9-11 Jun 2017. The celebration begins with a ribbon cutting at 5:30pmCT, Friday night at the Old Mulkey Meetinghouse State Historic Site, 38 Old Mulkey Park Road, Tompkinsville, KY 42167, and continues 9am-5pmCT, Saturday and Sunday.

The event, held in honor of Lucille Page, will feature an exhibit of over 60 quilts in the meetinghouse. This year's featured quilter is Joan Coe of Turkey Neck Bend, KY.

A variety of quilting related demonstrations will be conducted Saturday in the meetinghouse yard and Sunday in the park shelter. There is no admission fee and all activities are free while supplies last.

Also on Saturday, the Monroe Crafters will host a small craft fair in the meetinghouse yard and the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society will be on hand to discuss their registry process.

The Celebration is held annually in conjunction to Monroe County's Drive-by Quilt Hanging. During the quilt hanging residents throughout the county will be hanging quilts in their yard, on their fence or in their doors to honor the community's heritage of quilting.
