The Festival of Quilts

– Europe’s leading patchwork and quilting show

A celebration of quilting with over 300 exhibitors offering essential supplies, extraordinary galleries from international artists and a magnificent display of over 1,000 competition quilts – it’s the ultimate quilting experience.

Quilt Academy Programme

We have an exciting Academy programme for 2014, with a range of one, two-day and three-day classes, lots of half-day sessions plus some 90 minute workshops and a great mix of inspirational and informative lectures. We’ve listened to feedback and have put together a programme that is diverse and imaginative so will appeal to the creativity in you. Come and learn to make papers from cloth, print, dye, manipulate, add texture, form and stitch. Try new quilting techniques, work on art quilts or master some new ways to quilt traditional designs. Our lecture programme includes a key-note speaker daily plus information presentations that will inspire and encourage you to try something new.
