VQF celebrates its 40th anniversary Ruby Jubilee this month with dazzling color and artistry in hundreds of quilts on display in several exhibits. As part of the celebration, the Festival is very proud to present "Life's Work: Ruth B. McDowell," the largest exhibit ever of Ruth's art quilts. Her quilts have been exhibited nationally and internationally and are represented in many public, private, and corporate art collections worldwide.
Exhibits feature antique, contest, challenge, and contemporary quilts. The bustling merchants mall with its colorful array of products is a must for visitors. Throughout the weekend, free gallery talks, lectures, and appraisals offer insight into quilts and quilting techniques. Over seventy classes offer an even more comprehensive study with some of the nation's top instructors.
The show opens with the always-festive Champagne and Chocolate Preview on Thursday evening, June 23. The Textile Detectives and evening programs round out the events at New England's oldest and largest quilt event and a Vermont Chamber of Commerce Top Ten Time-Honored Event.
Plan to join us for our 40th!
