The Festival of Quilts (organised with the support of the Quilters Guild of the British Isles
) has earned a reputation over the past seven years as the largest, most inspiring quilting event in Europe - with good reason! The Festival of Quilts boasts a host of gallery exhibitions from leading international artists and groups; the list for 2010 is outstanding as always and can be seen on our Features page
. 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 nearly 100 masterclasses, workshops and lectures, and the Quick & Easy workshops
provide another 166 sessions aimed at beginners.
