We celebrated our first Rim Country Quilt Roundup in November 2005. From an idea from a few local quilters, this show has grown significantly. Since that time, this event has become a favorite among quilters in the Southwest and Canada.
Payson is called the "Gateway to the Rim Country" as it lies just below the Mogollon Rim in north central Arizona. Located in the world's largest stand of Ponderosa Pine trees, Deer, Elk, Turkey, Javelina, Mountain Lion and Bear can be seen while driving through this beautiful part of Arizona.
Payson is a quick drive from the Valley of the Sun. In just an hour or so, you can experience cool temperatures in the Summer and picturesque scenes of a snow covered Rim in the Winter.
