About this event

The Festival of Quilts, Europe’s leading patchwork and quilting event, returns to Birmingham’s NEC from 1st to 4th August 2024, with a bumper line-up of features that include special guest appearances from international quilting artists (including Jenny Doan!), hundreds of craft brands, an incredible workshop, talks and lectures programme, and much more! 

Back by popular demand, flying in from the USA to join the celebrations will be quilter, YouTube star, and owner of the Missouri Star Quilt Company, Jenny Doan. Jenny will share her story of how quilting has impacted her life and will provide quick and easy quilting tips and techniques in a series of trunk shows.

The Festival of Quilts also offers Europe’s biggest workshop and talks programme, featuring international tutors including Carolina Oneto (Brazil), Joe Cunningham (USA), Gregory Jay Barner (USA), Renee Fleuranges-Valdes (USA), and Gai Taylor (Australia), plus Dunja Supp, Elisabeth Culshaw, and Paula Milner to name just some of the new UK tutors. 

More than 200 specialist craft retailers will be on site, with exhibitors from across the globe, including Australia, New Zealand, the USA, and Japan.
