2024 Festival Dates: 6 & 7 July

Community Quilt

Visitors sewed themselves into the fabric of the festival, celebrating the unions created through making, sharing and collaborating with The Community Quilt.


Lovingly made sections of blanket created by community groups were sewn together to make one large handmade quilt which was exhibited at the end of the festival as a testament to our craft and love of making.
