NOTE: With the COVID19 pandemic affecting our world, the St. Jacobs Quilt Shows board has made a heartfelt decision to cancel the St Jacobs events of the Quilt & Fibre Art Festival. Looking forward to seeing everyone May 25-29, 2021.
Stay tuned to our Instagram & Facebook page May 25-29 as we digitally celebrate Quilt & Fibre Art!
After a long and grey winter season, the many colourful and eye-popping artistic delights that a quilt festival delivers couldn't be more welcome!
Mark your calendars for the Quilt & Fibre Art Festival taking place May 26 - May 30, 2020 in the village of St. Jacobs and throughout Waterloo region. Being our 25th anniversary, this will be the best festival yet.
This is a festival for EVERYONE! A common misconception is that it’s just for quilters & crafters, but this is a festival for anyone who appreciates art, fashion, and local craft! It’s a great girls day out, awesome for an individual relaxing activity or a family day out. Oh and our evening events make for a great date night!
Quilters, crafters, and others of all ages can enjoy amazing exhibits and take part in a variety of activities that have made this event one of the year's most anticipated.
Today's event organizers work hard to showcase a fresh and ever-expanding repertoire of modern fibre arts too, underscoring how textiles continue to take their place among contemporary craft and design.
Throughout the events there will be great art, local artists, beautiful fashion to purchase, food to eat and tea to drink! Come on out and have some fun, build community, and celebrate art.
