Autumn Quilt Show 
City-wide event. The historic town of Franklin and the Historic Franklin Preservation Association (HFPA) will host the first annual Autumn Quilt Show. Two hundred quilts will be hung and displayed in the windows of our downtown shops and in the finest historical homes Franklin has to offer. Quilters and quilt enthusiasts will tour these shops and homes, attend lectures about Civil war quilts, cot to coffin quilts and hear the folk lore that surrounds the Underground Railroad quilts. Participants will also tour the beautiful St John's Episcopal Church and the amazing Tiffany windows, and, for many, will experience for the first time, the charm and beauty that makes Franklin, PA so special!

Welcome Reception and Registration Friday evening and Saturday morning at DeBence Antique Music World, 1261 Liberty Street, Franklin, PA.

Admission to this event is $10.00, includes one raffle ticket, the Historic Homes Quilt Tour, the Downtown Historic Quilt Walk and access to all quilt displays and vendors.
