Pennsylvania Quilt Shows

Quilts and their designs have changed over time, reflecting the influences of geography, historical events, technological innovations, economic circumstances, ethnic traditions, and personal aesthetics. Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania has to offer. Also, be sure to visit the many art galleries and museums throughout the state.
