Highway 36 Quilt Trail a top U.S. quilting destination

The Missouri Tourism Commission recently awarded the Missouri Highway 36 Heritage Alliance with the Pathfinder Award for their Quilt Trail tourism program.

Director of Project Development with the St. Joseph Convention and Visitor's Bureau Beth Charmicael says the trail, which was formed three years ago, has brought tourism from all parts of the world to north Missouri. Carmichael says interest is due in part to "Quilt Shop Passports," which help drive traffic to smaller shops.

The Highway 36 Quilt Trail has earned a reputation as one of the top quilting destinations in the U.S., and has been featured in McCall's Quilting magazine as well as America's Patchwork and Quilting.
