We have experienced over 40 years of sharing the beauty, creativity, artistry, and history of quilt making. In this, our 43rd year, we are looking forward to a full agenda that celebrates the history of quilt making, including an exhibit of antique quilts, as well as the opportunities and direction of the modern quilter. Our program embraces the past and introduces the innovations created by new generations of quilters.

We will once again offer contests, classes, presentations, shopping, and exhibits for all to enjoy and experience. Our photographers will be on the scene capturing these moments as they take place and continuing to record for us the rich tradition we celebrate.

Join us in Vermont this summer to appreciate, learn, and celebrate the rich history of quilting.


The Festival contest exhibits entries from the US, Canada, and abroad. Three renowned judges evaluate the entries in this non-juried contest. This year’s contest theme is “Color My World.” We also provide youth quilters with an opportunity to display their work.

Congratulations to all the past entrants and winners!
