LongDescription: Thousands of visitors attend New England’s largest and oldest quilt event for a visual feast of color and design in the hundreds of contemporary and antique quilts on display. Visitors also enjoy shopping the bustling merchants’ mall with its colorful array of wares. Lectures, classes, free gallery talks, quilt appraisals and more round out the weekend events. Not to be missed is the always festive Champagne and Chocolate Preview sponsored by Quilting Treasures of Rhode Island.
The Festival takes place the last weekend in June at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction.
The Vermont Quilt Festival is designated as one of the American Bus Association’s Top 100 Events for 2012.
