Quilting festivals offer an incredible opportunity to display creations, view the work of fellow quilting enthusiasts, learn, and spend time with like-minded people from all over the world.

Shows, conferences, and festivals bring quilters together, enabling them to discover dazzling new designs, share tips and tricks and delve deeper into the magical world of quilting. From beginners and amateurs keen to hone their skills to seasoned pros with years of experience under their belt, quilting festivals can be fun for everyone.

The International Quilt Festival, founded by Karey Bresenhan in 1974, holds an annual conference in Houston, Texas. It is the largest annual quilt show in the U.S. Festival regularly attracts 55,000 people from over 35 countries all around the world.
