Bristol Quilters 'Quiltfest' 2014

Bristol Quilters is a thriving local quilt group with more than 120 members from all around the area. Every three years we hold a major exhibition and, at the end of May this year, we will be returning to the beautiful setting of Badminton School on the Downs in Bristol for a three-day summer ‘Quiltfest’.

Our exhibitions are the largest quilt shows in the Bristol area and ‘Quiltfest’ will be a colourful celebration of the talent and skills of our members, some of whom have won national and international acclaim for their work. We will be showing more than 100 beautiful quilts as well as wall hangings and a selection of non-hanging items – hand and machine work, from traditional to contemporary in style, using a wide variety of techniques.

In addition to an exhibition that we hope will delight and inspire all textile, craft and quilt lovers, we will have a specialist quilting trader at the show each day and a sales table laden with handmade treats and gifts for you to buy. And, because no quilt show can be complete without them, there will be delicious homemade cakes and refreshments too!

Our chosen charity this year is the Great Western Air Ambulance and we will be running a tombola with stunning prizes to raise funds for them.

The entire exhibition is wheelchair accessible, and parking will be available on site.

Crafts and sewing in general and quilting in particular are becoming increasingly popular. Please come and see what we do – and be inspired!

Quiltfest’ will run from Thursday 29th to Saturday 31st May 2014 at Badminton School, Westbury Road, Bristol BS9 3BA.

Opening times: Thursday 1pm–6pm; Friday 10am–6pm; Saturday 10am–4pm

Admission: £4
