WQNE14_9002aWant to see quilts from across the globe? No need to spend days traveling. We are bringing the quilts to you. Join us for the premier of the 2015 World Quilt Competition XIX. These quilts from all over the globe present a mix of culture, fun and creative talent. The show also features special quilt exhibits including displays from across the United States and Canada. You will also enjoy a wide range of quilt and textile related activities including workshops and lectures presented by an internationally known faculty. Plus, if you need to cap-off your unfinished summer project or jump-start something fresh for the fall season, the show’s Merchants Mall will offer everything you may possibly need!

In addition, instructors from the United States include Pamela Druhen (VT), Pat Harrison (RI), Sue Nickels (MI), Pat Yamin (NY), Bobbie Bergquist (NH), Debora Konchinsky (PA), Nancy Murtie (FL) and David Sirota (NH). Join one or more of these talented instructors in a workshop to learn a new technique or perhaps brush up an old one.

Among the highlights of the 2015 Show are a special luncheon presentation by well-known instructor Sue Nickels, the always popular World Quilt Panel & Forum Ice Cream Social, and, new for 2015, Quilt-O; “the best time you will ever have at a quilt show.” Also, the World Quilt Show will continue to offer its all-inclusive show and hotel package for those who prefer an easy, package plan.

After viewing all the wonderful quilts, it’s time to shop. This exciting venue offers a fabulous merchants mall with shows vendors who travel to New Hampshire from throughout the country. From books to threads, from scissors to thimbles, from fabric to patterns there will be everything imaginable available for purchase by the quilt artist and needle craft enthusiast.

The World Quilt Show – New England is an amazing opportunity to see the work of quilt artists from across the United States and from abroad. This show is not to be missed! Nothing beats New England in the summer!
