Festival 2013 opened at the Champlain Valley Exposition with the exciting Awards Ceremony and Champagne and Chocolate Preview. What a great weekend it was to be among the thousands enjoying the color, design and beauty of hundreds of the new and antique quilts on display. Visitors also enjoyed great shopping in the Merchants Mall as well as classes, lectures, appraisals and more. Planning is now well underway for 2014 so remember to mark your calendars for June 27- 29. For an overview of Festival 2013, enjoy the video below.
