“This sign was made to display to visitors that Dillsboro is about making people feel at home,” said Jean Hartbarger, co-owner of the Jarrett House. “This sign encompasses the ‘neighbors helping neighbors’ atmosphere here in Dillsboro.”
The “Welcome Home” theme is the product of a design contest on Facebook that the owners of the Jarrett House held this past summer. The sign’s design includes a Carolina Lily quilt pattern to complement the theme.
Tom Frazier, manager of the Western Carolina University Print Shop, helped to design and print the new sign. It took the Jarrett House and Dogwood Crafters coming together to erect the large sign.
