Appalachian Arts & Crafts Fair 2024

2024 Appalachian Arts & Crafts Fair
Applications Coming Soon

Thank you to our 2023 Appalachian Makers Market Sponsor!

Join us for the Appalachian Arts & Crafts Fair on August 2nd and 3rd at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center here in Beckley WV.

Our Arts & Crafts Fair features skilled Appalachian artists and makers pursuing their life-long passion of creating beautifully crafted items for you and your home.

Within Appalachia is a rich and unique history of handcrafting; from original art works, photography, pottery, metalworking and more. The new Appalachian Makers Market celebrates the region’s finest makers. Throughout the years the display of intricate quilts around the rotunda has been one of the most popular attractions. The Appalachian Treasures Quilt Show remains an integral part of the new Appalachian Makers Market.

Appalachian Treasure Quilt Show

The ATQS Committee is pleased to feature the 49th Appalachian Treasures Quilt Show as an integral part of the 2024 Appalachian Makers Market to be held at the Beckley- Raleigh County Convention Center on August 2 and 3 2024.

The quilts hanging around the upper rotunda have been entered by quilters to be judged and awarded ribbons for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and Honorable Mention in 15 categories. This year we have also introduced a new category – Exhibit Only – for those quilters who wish to display their work without competing for ribbons. In addition, Best of Show, Judge’s Choice, Best Use of Color (this year green) and People’s Choice are awarded a special ribbon as well as a cash award. The People’s Choice award is voted on by the viewing public and announced at the end of the show.

We will also again display “Comfort Quilts.” These are baby quilts made primarily by Hands All Around and Sew Sew Sisters Quilt Guilds. The displayed quilts are not for sale but will be distributed throughout the year by two local agencies. Anyone interested in helping with this community project may contribute a quilt by contacting a member of the ATQS Committee.

We hope you will enjoy our quilt displays as well as all the other various features of the Arts & Crafts Fair. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite quilt as you wander through our “Garden.” The recipient of this award is always especially thrilled by the public appreciation of their work!
