The Festival of Quilts is the largest and most inspiring patchwork and quilting event in Europe, offering a complete patchwork and quilting experience.
We present a host of gallery exhibitions from leading international artists and groups; we display over 700 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 exhibiting.
There are 22 galleries this year including the 5th European Quilt Triennial plus Kaffe Fassett, Lynne Edwards and Beneath the Southern Sky.
This year we have two new categories within the competitions, celebrating beginners to the subject with My First Quilt, and honouring the more accomplished and experienced stitchers with a juried selection in Fine Art Quilt Masters.
Thursday 8th - Saturday 10th - 10.00am-5.30pm
