We are still seeking volunteers. From load-in to break down, the event logistics of Art in Autumn are seamlessly executed by an amazing group of volunteers from the business community as well as the greater Weaverville community. Our goal is to make the artist’s experience in our town as positive as possible. Each volunteer receives a free Art in Autumn t-shirt in appreciation for their efforts!

The Shope’s Furniture store was one of the first building in our lovely town of Weaverville.  It is rich in history and life.  It has been a family furniture store for the past 102 years.  Before that, it was home to a variety of different things including the town hall, the post office and even the jail.   We are excited to be part of the next incarnation of life in this place with so many stories. If you would like to read up more about not only out new space but also our great little town, here are a few articles by much better writers than myself:

Opening Soon Sign

Some of the exciting changes in store are, a new quilt shop (that is us), an adorable embroidery shop (Sassy Jack’s Stitchery) and brand-spanking new brewery (DJ may never want to leave work again).  In the near future there will also be local art work on display and a few other surprises…stay tuned for those.

While trying to keep the authenticity of the building but making it inhabitable for new retail shops, there have been many changes during the renovations.   The electrical and plumbing are not up to today’s building codes.  The heating and air-conditioning systems are sorely out or date and we don’t even need to talk about the paint and carpeting…

Here are some pictures of what the space looked like when we signed our lease:

We can’t wait for you all to see it when it is finished!
