An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until July 23, 2023
Join the celebration of local quilters as they stitch together tradition and storytelling in the 37th Annual Quilt Exhibition at Billings Farm & Museum.
The incredible display of artfully crafted quilts will transform Billings Farm’s Historic Barn from June 3 – July 23, 10:00AM – 5:00PM. The juried exhibition features contemporary quilts made by Windsor County quilters, historic quilts from the Billings Farm collection, and “Beatles” themed challenge quilts made by members of the Heart of the Land Guild.
Learn about the techniques, themes, patterns, materials, and collaborations each quilt represents, and the touching personal stories behind each quilt’s creation.
See demonstrations and activities including a quilt-themed reading corner and quilting on a quilt frame.
Test your eagle eyes in the Quilt Scavenger Hunt to discover interesting elements hidden among the stitches.
Vote for your favorite quilts for the People’s Choice Award!
Admission is required to view the exhibition. Admission to Billings Farm & Museum includes the Animal Barns, Vermont Farm Life Exhibits, the Interpretive Walking Trail and the 1890 Farm Manager’s House. The 1890 Farm Manager’s House features the creamery, the kitchen and in-home innovations that were considered state-of-the art for the time. Visitors can meet the farm’s cows, draft horses, sheep, goats, and chickens in the barns and scenic pastures and enjoy ice cream and snacks at the Farmhouse Scoop Shop.
