Enter our Virtual Quilting Competition!

While The Festival of Quilts 2020 may have been postponed to 29th July – 1st August 2021 at The NEC, our annual Quilting Competition is still going ahead in a virtual format!


There are 12 different categories to enter with £500 for adult category winners, plus to ensure these quilts get the spotlight they deserve we will be displaying ALL entries on our website as a part of a ‘Virtual Gallery’. What’s more, we will also be featuring a selection of pieces in an exclusive Festival of Quilts magazine as well as displaying them amongst the Textile Galleries at The Knitting & Stitching Shows in the Autumn.


The show may not be going ahead at The NEC this year, but we’re not letting that get in the way of giving you your quilting fix in 2020!
