Massachusetts Quilt Shows & Events

Quilts and their designs have changed over time, reflecting the influences of geography, historical events, technological innovations, economic circumstances, ethnic traditions, and personal aesthetics. Massachusetts has a rich quilting history, and is bound with a wealth of opportunities to discover this quilting heritage. Explore the many quilt shows, shop hops, and exhibitions Massachusetts has to offer. Also, be sure to visit the many art galleries and museums throughout the state.

Quilters Resources prides itself in being your most comprehensive resource for quilting related information on the internet; however, please understand that circumstances beyond our control may limit the accuracy of posted information. I am not always made aware of event changes and/or cancellations. As such, please be sure to verify dates, times, and locations prior to traveling to any event.

If you would like to update or add an event, please e-mail events@quiltersresources.net.
