Entry for Quilts Deadline extended to 11am Monday 7th June 2021
With two weeks left to create and enter your quilt into the 2021 Festival of Quilts, it’s worth considering why you might want to do that. FOQ as we fondly refer to this prestigious event ,sets out seven reasons why we should give it a go this year of all years. Remember, there are no good or bad quilts and we should never be afraid to show off our beautiful creations.
- There is a prize pool of almost £35,000 — just think what you could do with a slice of that prize pot
- Thousands of quilters will view your quilt. Imagine the kudos that will bring to your effort.
- More categories than ever this year – including one just for beginners.
- Best in Show, sponsored by Handi Quilter, will be awarded not only this amazing accolade but will take home the top prize of £3500.
- Every quilt, regardless of which category they are entered into, will be eligible to win one of four new Overlay Awards, worth £500 each.
- All entries will be displayed online once the show closes, making them accessible to be viewed by a worldwide audience.
- The Visitor Choice award of £500 will be voted for online .. always a popular award and again thousands may view your quilt
Please remember, UKQU.co.uk have no influence with FOQ and any questions should be directed to the show organisers via their website.
Good luck everyone entering and we are all looking forward to seeing your fabulous entries decorating the Halls at the NEC this year.
