In 1995 a small group of quilters met to discuss forming a guild. They decided to hold a “Show and Tell” tea to promote quilting and to generate interest in a guild. This first “Show and Tell" tea which was held on April 22, 1995 at St. Michael’s Anglican Church was a great success. Since then, the “Festival of Quilts” has usually been an annual event of the Mountain Cabin Quilters Guild. It is now referred to as the "Fall Quilt Show" since it is usually held in the fall.
Saturday, Sept 30 - Sunday, Oct 1, 2017
The 2017 Festival of Quilts will be held in the Canmore Recreation Centre. There will be over 100 quilts displayed, a vendor fair, craft sale and silent auction.
The show will be open from 10 a.m. till 5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. till 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for student and free for children 5 and under.
Mark it on your calendar and come and enjoy the fantastic display of traditional and modern quilts along with fiber art projects. It's a great way to spend a weekend in Canmore.
