These quilts were made in the North for wounded soldiers hospitalized right in New Bern. We challenge all guild members, fellow quilters and community members to fill the convention center with their amazing quilted treasures highlighting the talent here in Eastern North Carolina. Let your artistry, your compassion, your struggle, your growth and your beauty shine as we come together as a community to host a beautiful quilt show and celebrate the resilience of our community.

“Plants Style” Our November Garden Lecture features renowned plantsman Kelly Norris discussing “Plants with Style.” Gardeners need chic, sustainable, thriving plants for modern lifestyles. Why settle for lackluster gardens filled with dull, ho-hum plants? After all, plants are the very essence of fashionable gardening. In this spirited, provocative lecture, Kelly Norris calls for a garden revolution. Out with boring plants and in with stylish alternatives that captivate and enthrall! A passionate horticulturist and lifelong gardener, Kelly is the ideal guide to the botanical riches available to today’s gardeners. In chapters on environment, structure, seasonal standouts, and plant combinations, he shines a spotlight on the A-list plants in every category—plants that will thrive, not merely survive. Along the way, he shows you how to forge a personal style in harmony with your garden’s setting and local environment. As Kelly puts it, “A garden is the best way to savor life on earth.” Allow “Plants with Style” to guide you to the plants that will provide a richer, more fulfilling connection between you and your own patch of soil. This lecture is free and begins at 10 a.m. in Cullman Performance Hall at the North Carolina History Center. A “Plants with Style” book signing will follow at the NCHC Museum Store.
