The Festival of Quilts 2015

The Festival of Quilts takes place from 6-9th August 2015 in Halls 7, 8 & 9 at the NEC Birmingham.

Europe’s leading patchwork and quilting show returns to the NEC bringing together a community of like-minded, creative people in a unique celebration of patchwork and quilting.
  • See up to 1000 quilts entered into competition by quilters from every corner of the globe.
  • Visit in excess of 25 curated galleries from leading quilt artists and groups.
  • Shop from over 300 companies selling specialist and hard-to-find supplies.
  • Choose from a huge range of workshops and masterclasses or hear from the experts in one of the lectures.
Traditional, contemporary and modern quilters; professionals and amateurs; young and old are all brought together in this huge stitch extravaganza! Nowhere else in Europe will you find such talent, colour and vibrancy and such creativity and passion for quilting under one roof.
 The Quick & Easy Workshops and the Quilt Academy and Lecture Programme timetables are now available to view.
