PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (March 2013) – Handmade quilts can be many things in one – a source of warmth, works of art, family heirlooms and more.

Quilts in all their glory are the focus of A Mountain Quiltfest in Pigeon Forge from March 12-16.

Quilters and crafters from across the U.S. gather to enjoy a quilt show and the opportunity to choose from dozens of classes and seminars.

Whether you are a quilter or not, the displays are worth the trip to this Great Smoky Mountains resort town. This is the 19th year of A Mountain Quiltfest.

There are free-admission quilt shows at the Music Road Convention Center and the Smoky Mountain Convention Center, plus a vendor area for a variety of quilt- and craft-related items. Other Quiltfest activities include brunch and dinner lectures, show-and-tell events and quilt appraisals.

I have realized that of all kinds of insurance, health care insurance is the most marked by controversy because of the struggle between the insurance company’s duty to remain profitable and the client’s need to have insurance. Insurance companies’ commission rates on well being plans are low, so some businesses struggle to make a profit. Thanks for the thoughts you reveal through this web site.
