The Festival of Quilts (organised with the support of the Quilters Guild of the British Isles) has earned a reputation over the past six years as the largest, most inspiring quilting event in Europe - with good reason!

The Festival of Quilts (August 20-23, 2009) boasts a host of white wall gallery exhibitions from leading international artists and groups; the superb list for 2009 includes International stars such as Chunghie Lee, Yoshiko Jinzenji, European Art Quilt Foundation and SAQA.

Over 250 companies will be selling all those hard-to-find patchwork and quilting supplies, so bring your shopping bags! We also offer The Quilt Academy with a stunning programme of over 75 masterclasses, workshops and lectures, and the Quick & Easy workshops provide another 160 plus sessions aimed at beginners.

But, of course, the stars of the Show are the quilts! With over 1,000 quilts on display, The Festival of Quilts is the most stunning visual feast. You can see all the competition entries and all the winners displayed beautifully for you to browse through and contemplate from every angle.

And in the evening we have a host of Social Functions to keep you entertained. We have some very special deals with local hotels, making it easy for you to spend two or three days at the Festival. This means you can also come to The Gala Dinner, The Quilters' Birthday Party! The Barge Dinner, The Wine and Cheese Evening or An Evening with Amy Butler.
