Hi. I am Sheena and am half way through my term of office as Festival of Quilts Officer for The Guild.
This year at the Festival of Quilts our Quilters’ Guild Collection exhibition celebrates 300 years of the iconic 1718 Silk Patchwork Coverlet, exploring extensive research on the piece and how its unique design is still an inspiration for makers today.
For those of you attending the Festival of Quilts at the NEC this month, we’d like to invite you to have your say by voting for your favourite quilt.
Did you know we have over 400 Young Quilter members and 13 affiliated school groups in the UK? Find out more about Festival of Quilts through the eyes of our youngest members.

We all like talking. We all like quilting. We like patchwork, fabric and nosing around to see how a quilt was made, too. Come and indulge yourself and join us at the ‘Our Quilt Heritage’ stand.
