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, 2019

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

In 2019 New Zealand will be the feature country at the Ailsa Craig Quilt and Fibre Arts 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 Iceland
* 2019 – Quilts of New Zealand

New Zealand will be represented by Aotearoa Quilters President, a number of committee members, up to four tutors, up to four other NZ quilters and approximately 120 NZ quilts. Members of this delegation will work as part of the festival assisting with setting up the exhibition, white glove duty, teaching classes, speaking of New Zealand quilting history and life in New Zealand etc. Such a huge opportunity for New Zealand Quilters!

We want to thank those who have submitted images of quilts that can be used for promotional purposes.

The next stage will be to call for NZ Quilting Tutors to participate in the Festival – watch this space!

We will continue to update this page on a regular basis.
