First Freedom Sponsors the Upper Cumberland Quilt Festival
First Freedom was a sponsor for the 30th Annual Upper Cumberland Quilt Festival this year. This event has grown substantially over the years and showcases over 600 quilts. This event always draws a large attendance from Putnam and surrounding counties, as well as out-of-state visitors.
The festival strives to not only showcase the quilts but also preserve the art and heritage of quilting, provide education, and act as a location for experts to meet.
