The annual Quilt & Fiber Arts Festival is our largest annual fundraiser and provides vital support for Museum operations!
Thank you all for attending the 2013 Quilt & Fiber Art Festival, held October 4 – 6. This year we featured an International Show of Juried & Judged quilts, fiber art, and wearable art in Maple Hall and the La Conner Civic Garden Club, both locations within a half-block of the Museum. The work came from seven countries, including the U.S., Canada, Taiwan, Japan, The Netherlands, Australia, and the United Kingdom. Nineteen U.S. states are represented. The city-wide Festival also includes a Quilt Walk, Specialty Vendors, and a Silent Auction.
A DVD of the 2013 Festival is available for $10 (shipping extra). If you would like to purchase a 2013 Quilt & Fiber Arts DVD, follow this link…
