Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival XXIII to be held in Feb 2012
Nov '11
This February 23-26, 2012, celebrate 23 years of quilt, wearable, and textile art at Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival XXIII, one of the largest and most anticipated quilt gatherings on the eastern seaboard. Presented by Mancuso Show Management and drawing upwards of 10,000 attendees, this show is a must for any quilting or art enthusiast.

The theme of this year's festival, entitled “What If?”, gives entrants an opportunity to relate what their quilt would say…if it could talk! Other highlights include a Merchants Mall with over 250 vendor booths (showcasing everything from quilting supplies to sewing related craft items), clothing, textiles, books, antique quilts, and more. There will also be plenty of special exhibitions and workshops, as well as lectures by some of the most-renowned individuals in the quilting industry.

While at the festival, be sure to explore the Wearable Art Competition and cast your vote for the “Quilt” and “Wearable Viewer's Choice Awards.” This competition features works from some of the finest quilt and textile artists in the country and includes submissions such as vests, jackets and coats.
