Quilter of the Year Program

The Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail has sponsored the Quilter of the Year Program since 2010. It began in Oconee County and now has been expanded to include Anderson and Pickens Counties. The program will be rotating the nominations by county. The 2016 nominees will be from Anderson County, 2017 Pickens County and 2018 Oconee County. Then the cycle will repeat. Nominations will only be accepted for residents of that year’s county. Nominees do not have to be a member of a guild or other formal quilting association or group. Nominations have to be submitted on the application form by date due

The Quilter of the Year Program was initiated to recognize a quilter who has provided community service and leadership through their quilting. The UHQT receives much support from the quilting community, it is our way to say thank you to these artists who provide service to their community.
