New England’s largest and oldest quilt event celebrates its 42nd year with some of the best quilts, both contemporary and antique.
Hundreds of eye-popping quilts delight thousands of visitors each year with a grand cross-section of the quilt-makers art and a visual feast of color and design. Opening the Festival is the always-festive Champagne and Chocolate Preview on Thursday evening, when attendees are the first to see the exhibits and shop the bustling vendor mall of 80 vendors from across the continent. Scheduled throughout the weekend are quilt appraisals, free gallery talks by exhibit curators, free vendor demonstrations and more! Excellent classes with top instructors and evening programs round out the weekend. A Vermont Chamber of Commerce Time-Honored Event!
