More About Deanna Holter: Chandelier & Milky Way Quilts

We’re celebrating textiles throughout March at the Horry County Museum! Stop by to hear from local quilters on a range of topics. In addition to the free programming, you’ll have a chance to win a door prize at every event! Join us Wednesday, March 6th at 10 AM as local quilter Deanna Holter shows a variety of Chandelier & Milky Way quilts. These beautiful quilts and quilt tops were made in a class taught by Deanna Holter at the Conway Quilt Guild. She will also discuss how the look of a pattern can change by the use of color.
Deanna Holter started her quilting career around 1982 with Eleanor Burns and Quilt in a Day. In that program, quilters didn’t use long arm quilts, but instead sewed an ‘x’ from corner to corner. She has since altered her original piece and quilts on her long arm machine. After her first piece, Deanna didn’t make any more quilts until moving to South Carolina in 2005. She found a cute pattern and went to town making quilts for each of her sister in laws. Those quilts got her started on a quilting journey in which she connected with the Grand Strand Quilters. There she met Joan Wobbleton and began volunteering to make Quilts of Valor quilts. Wanting to be a part of a closer knit guild, Deanna joined the Conway Quilt Guild. Deanna feels very grateful to be part of a group of who she calls wonderful and caring ladies that have also been involved in many ceremonies to present quilts to veterans in the Conway area.
The program will be held at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street, Conway SC. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email To view a full list of programs, visit our website at Click for Details.

More About Horry County Museum

The Horry County Museum was established in 1979 and opened its doors to the public in 1981. The Museum focuses on the history, pre-history, and natural history of Horry County, S.C., and educates the public about these subjects through exhibits, outreach programs, and events. In 2009, the Museum opened the L. W. Paul Living History Farm. The Farm is a re-creation of life on a one horse family farm between the years of 1900-1955. Visitors to the farm can experience what life was like in a farm community during those years and attend quarterly events at the Farm. In 2014, the Museum moved into the renovated 1905 Burroughs School. The school is on the National Register of Historic Places. The move includes increased exhibits, a freshwater aquarium featured on Animal Planet’s hit reality show “Tanked”, and a 600 seat auditorium that hosts public presentations and programs.
