About The Festival of Quilts

The Festival of Quilts was launched in 2003 by Upper Street Events Ltd, a UK-based company with 30 years’ experience in organising successful consumer exhibitions. Upper Street Events was acquired by Immediate Media in January 2019, who publish the market leading craft magazines in the country. We now operate under the trading name of Immediate Live.

The Festival is now the largest and most successful patchwork and quilting event in Europe.

Attracting an affluent audience of 26,000 people every year, the Festival has become the ultimate destination for quilters from all over the world.

If you’re in the patchwork & quilting business, the Festival provides an annual opportunity to sell your products, build brand awareness and meet your customers face to face.

We expect over 350 companies to exhibit with us in 2021, including around 15% from outside the UK. Stands are selling fast, so if you’d like to exhibit, get in touch with us today to ensure you get the best location.

The Practicalities

Stands come complete with standard shell-scheme, carpet and fascia board. You will also receive a listing on our website, inclusion in the show guide and some complimentary tickets for the show.

The smallest stand we offer is 4 square metres, but we can generally accommodate whatever size suits you and your budget. If you prefer space only, that’s fine too.
