Welcome to Aotearoa Quilters

Formed in 1994 as the National Association of New Zealand Quilters (NANZQ), we support quilters and textile artists by offering classes, exhibitions and professional development opportunities. Membership is open to anyone interested in the NZ quilting and textile scene.

Ailsa Craig Community Quilt Festival, 2018

UPDATE – JUNE 2017 – Regrettably we are no longer able to participate in this opportunity due to circumstances outside our control. Aotearoa Quilters  wish the Ailsa Craig Festival well for their 2017 Festival and hope we can work with them in the future. 

An extremely exciting opportunity has been made available to New Zealand Quilters.

In 2018 New Zealand will be the feature country at the Ailsa Craig Community Quilt Festival, in southern Ontario. The festival is unlike any other in the world. The week long exhibition is completely run by volunteers, and each year exhibits quilts from another country.

* 2011 – Quilts of the Netherlands
* 2012 – Quilts of Denmark
* 2013 – Quilts of Israel
* 2014 – Quilts of Great Britain
* 2015 – Quilts of France
* 2016 – Quilts of Latvia
* 2017 – Canada’s 150th birthday will be celebrated
* 2018 – Quilts of New Zealand

New Zealand will be represented by up to 180 quilts, four tutors, a power point presentation of our quilting history and an outlet for our quilting products.
Such a huge opportunity for the quilters here. More information will be available in the coming months.
