In a place so rich in history, the arts have also been an integral thread in the Chiefland quilt. Quilts…there are a number of quilting societies and guilds in the Chiefland area, including Springhouse Quilter’s Guild and Log Cabin Quilters.
Founded by the Log Cabin Quilters club, The Levy County Quilt Museum is the only registered quilt museum in the state of Florida. Twice each year this club organizes a Quilt Show for quilters to display their work at the museum and offer items for sale. This museum attracts many visitors during the show season and throughout the year. Be sure to visit this magnificent quilting heaven!
Springhouse Quilter’s Guild was founded in 1992 and has extended its membership to over 70 members since then. As community projects, members quilt together raffle quilts, crafts, sleeping mats, and other works of sewing wonder. The organization even teaches a 4H sewing camp for young quilting enthusiasts.
For theater buffs, visit the Chief Theater in Chiefland and watch the Suwannee Valley Players put on great community productions. This non-profit organization devotes itself to furthering interest in the arts in the Levy-Dixie-Gilchrist area. The group even has an annual summer youth production giving young people in the area a great opportunity to discover the exciting theater world.
