at the 22nd annual
Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza

You are invited to celebrate the world of quilting as the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza XXII returns to the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA, September 17-20, 2015. This longstanding event remains a spectacular show of creation, innovation, and education. Show-goers will enjoy a unique and beautiful display of over 600 quilts and works of textile and wearable art from across the globe. Plus, as past visitors know, the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza would not be complete without its amazing Merchants Mall filled to the brim with vendor booths, offering everything the quilter, textile artists and needle crafter needs to quench their creative thirsts.

This year’s national prize money competition has been titled “ReadyPNQE14_1032a … Set … Quilt!,” challenging quilt artists to respond to “Creating a new quilt takes lots of planning from designing to selecting fabrics to … How do you get yourself to the starting line? What is your process?” In addition, special exhibitions will fill the aisles with hundreds of works by quilt artists from around the globe. In all, over 600 quilts and works of textile and wearable art will be presented. Pictured: Welcome to My Universe by Elizabeth A Ohlson.
