Along with some new ones.

This weekend, the Sycamore Stitchers will have dozens of quilts on display at Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area for the group’s annual quilt show. The entries in the show are divided into categories, and visitors cast their votes for their favorite in each division.

This year’s show will feature memorial tributes to two quilt club members who died this past year.

Show chair Carolyn Buckles said the show includes a display of the works of Shirley Buckles and Janelle Hart.

“It’s our way of remembering them,” she said.
