The International Quilt Festival may just be the mother (no gender puns intended) of quilt festivals. Little do people know that there happens to be an entire subculture surrounding quilts—making them, draping them, decorating them, etc. Not only does the International Quilt Festival honor this subculture by traveling around the country, but it covers seven of the best cities in the United States.
On October 15-18, 2009 the International Quilt Festival will visit Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center. Each day the festival will feature over 1800 quilts and wearable art, original cloth dolls and over 1000 vendor booths to browse.
Tickets to the International Quilt Festival are $35 for all four days of admission and $10 for one day at the festival.
