10 things not to miss at the American Craft Show in Atlanta this weekend

Every year, the lines stretch down the halls of the cavernous Cobb Galleria Centre for the city’s best annual artist marketplace, featuring more than 230 artists. It can be overwhelming, so here's our cheat sheet on what not to miss.

Bulloch Hall’s Great American Cover-Up Quilt Show spotlights the Southeast’s best stitchers

This month up to 200 quilts cover Roswell’s Bulloch Hall for the 34th Great American Cover-Up Quilt Show. Draped over beds and hung on walls, the blankets are made by artists from all over the Southeast, including Bulloch Hall Quilt Guild member Diane Knott, whose quilts are featured in a special exhibition.

DIY: Get inspired to get crafty

Long before Amy Sedaris picked up her glue gun or Etsy revved up a new generation of artisans, the American Craft Council helped build public appreciation for fine crafts. When the ACC Show returns to the Cobb Galleria Centre from March 14 to 16, the attraction will mark its twenty-fifth year in Atlanta. We recommend going to the show for motivation, then releasing your own inner artist with some of these local classes.

You can tour historic homes in Atlanta’s first “suburb,” take in bands, and see local art, but the real highlight

an attorney drill team, the Seed & Feed Marching Abominable, and the Trash Queen.

25. Buy a bonsai tree—from a monk

In 1944 a handful of Trappist monks established a community in the woods outside of Conyers.

6. Learn how to really put on a puppet show

The bonding that goes on during the Create-A-
Puppet workshops held after certain Center for Puppetry Arts performances is more about parent-and-child than glue–and–cutout shapes.

Finer Things: Loving Letterpress

As communication grows ever more digital, there has also been a revival of interest in handmade paper goods, especially those printed with an old-fashioned letterpress.
