Ailsa Craig Quilt and Fibre Festival 2019


In 2019 New Zealand will be the featured country at the Ailsa Craig Quilt and Fibre Arts Festival, in Canada. 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.

New Zealand will be represented by Aotearoa Quilters President, a number of committee members,  four tutors 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!

All the details about entering your quilts to showcase the best of New Zealand quilts are on the Conditions of Entry page. Details of quilts you wish to enter, plus photograph, need to be entered by December 15th 2018. Quilts selected will need to be with us by March. Quilts do not need to be newly made for this exhibition. Any size is permitted.
