The Festival of Quilts is not just an exhibition. We offer a host of gallery exhibitions from leading international artists and groups (see our FEATURES page for details); we display around 1,000 quilts entered into competition (click here to ENTER) and we offer the largest range of patchwork & quilting supplies under one roof than any other event with over 250 companies selling unique, hard-to-find patchwork and quilting supplies!
We also offer The Quilt Academy with a stunning programme of nearly 100 masterclasses, workshops and lectures, and the Quick & Easy workshops provide another 154 sessions aimed at beginners. Plus the fun continues in the evening with some fabulous entertainment; a Bollywood night, fashion shows, Shakespeare, a cruise on the Avon - lots to choose from. There's so much to do you'll leave buzzing with ideas and inspiration!
We look forward to welcoming you to the Festival...
