The Quilt & Sewing Fest of New Jersey will be held at the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, New Jersey March 2-5, 2017. For many years, quilters have worked to institute quilting, one of America’s original pastimes, into today’s art society. Like a fine art show, the Quilt Fest features works from across the country in fantastic special exhibitions. It is a chance for quilters to experience the diversity and creativity of their fellow enthusiasts. Included at the Fest is an impressive textile showcase of some of the region’s most talented quilt and textile artists – the juried and judged Tri-State Competition. This show is a wonderful opportunity for quilters to experience the diversity and creativity of their fellow quilting enthusiasts.
The Tri-State Competition highlights quilts and textile art created by residents of the Tri-State area: New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. These regional artists will represent their quilt and textile communities with a stunning collection of artwork while competing for over $5,500 in prizes. New to the 2017 competition is a prize for the Best Modern Style Quilt. In addition, those attending the Quilt Fest will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite competition quilt to win the prestigious Viewers Choice Award. For those who love anything quilted, this spectacular display will satisfy that creative craving. Pictured: Tulip Fields by Anna Faustino.
