Quilts of New Zealand -2019

May 20 @ 10:00 am - May 25 @ 5:00 pm

Kia ora!
This year the charming village of Ailsa Craig, Ontario welcomes fibre artists from New Zealand to its internationally recognized Festival running May 20th-May 25th. Take unique workshops with passionate New Zealand fibre artists, treat yourself to lunch or a snack at the delicious Quilter’s Cafe, spoil yourself at visiting vendor’s booths and marvel at the creativity and artistry of these world re-known artists as you explore over 100 creative works. As you walk through the village, you can visit the Ailsa Craig Arts Centre and see photographs locals have taken on their trips to New Zealand. In Ye Olde Town Hall, there is an exhibit of the Festival’s first National Fibre Block Challenge; New Zealand Through Our Eyes. We welcome your vote for Viewer’s Choice where artists can win cash prizes before touring New Zealand! Take a walk through the Quilt Festival Alley in the Lions Park and see the Village’s celebration of past Festivals. We look forward to seeing you!
