The Festival of Quilts (organised with the support of the Quilters Guild of the British Isles) has earned a reputation over the past ten years as the largest, most inspiring quilting event in Europe!
The Festival of Quilts is not just an exhibition. We offer a host of gallery exhibitions from leading international artists and groups; we display around 1,000 quilts entered into competition and we offer the largest range of patchwork & quilting supplies under one roof than any other event with over 300 companies selling unique, hard-to-find patchwork and quilting supplies!
We also offer The Quilt Academy with a stunning programme of nearly 100 masterclasses, workshops and lectures, and the Quick & Easy workshops provide another 150 plus sessions aimed at beginners. Plus the fun continues in the evening with some fabulous entertainment; the Awards Ceremony, Fashion shows, Shakespeare, a cruise on the Avon - lots to choose from. There's so much to do you'll leave buzzing with ideas and inspiration!
