In 2018 we invite you to join us for Quilts of Iceland; Land of Ice and Lights. This fascinating country is noted for its artistic expression, democratic viewpoints, breath taking scenery and rich culture. We look forward to seeing how this is expressed in the Quilts of Iceland.

Please join us for a light lunch or refreshment at the Quilter’s Cafe housed in the Recreation Centre and to shop the stunning wares our vendors will display. Pop over to the Ailsa Craig Arts Centre; a living legacy from the ACQFAF to see a display from local photographers who have travelled to Iceland. Be captivated by the Huldufolk houses you will find around town as we extend our hospitality to the Hidden Folk of Iceland.

Register for classes in February and chat with the Icelandic Quilters, spinners and weavers who have travelled to join us and to share their techniques. On May 26th, don’t be alarmed to learn “The Vikings Are Coming!”. The Festival has invited the Wulfthorpe Viking Re-Enactment troupe to set up a living history display next to the Ailsa Craig Recreation Centre.

Admittance is free with paid admission to the Quilt Festival.
