The Heritage Alliance of Northeast Tennessee & Southwest Virginia

The Heritage Alliance is dedicated to the preservation of the architectural, historical, and cultural heritage of our region and to providing educational experiences related to history and heritage for a wide range of audiences.

Stories & Stitches: Historical Quilt Exhibit

The McKinney Center and Heritage Alliance invite you to experience Stories & Stitches: A Historical Quilt Exhibit that features 15 local and regional quilts from the Heritage Alliance’s historical collection. These quilts each come with their own stories. The quilts in this digital exhibit are in the same order they are in at the physical exhibit.


The Heritage Alliance would not be successful without the generous contributions of our donors. Your contributions support all of our activities and help us serve a rapidly expanding audience.
