Marion Uptown to Feature Quilts in New 'Quilt Walk' Retail Event

Uptown Marion will be hosting "Quilt Walk" coming August 17th, 2013.

Media Release

Uptown Marion, in partnership with more than 30 Uptown Marion businesses, is pleased to announce a new retail event coming August 17th, 2013.

The Marion Quilt Walk is a day featuring dozens of handcrafted quilts on display in businesses located throughout the Uptown Marion District. The event is free and open to the public and runs from 9am to 4pm.

“The Quilt Walk was initially presented as an idea by two Uptown Marion businesses with direct ties to quilting,” says Nick Glew, Uptown Marion Program Manager. “We’re excited to now have such a broad representation of our Uptown business community embracing the art of quilting to create an influx of new customers to our district.”

Quilt Walk organizers are also requesting unique quilts to be featured as part of the event. A judge’s choice award will be selected amongst all entries.
