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.

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

Attracting an affluent audience of over 25,000 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.

Why Exhibit?

  • FoQ brings a bigger audience of patchwork and quilting enthusiasts together under one roof than any other event in Europe.
  • Our audience is affluent and spend an average of £194.50 each at the show – that’s a total of £4.8m in four days!
  • The show offers retailers, distributers, manufacturers and artists/designers a unique opportunity to showcase products to a passionate audience who are keen to buy.

We expect over 300 companies to exhibit with us in 2019, including many 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.
