The San Diego Quilt Show is an annual event where those who practice the art of quilting can display their work. Quilting is more than just sewing comforter together this time-honoured tradition that has been done for centuries is truly an art form in itself, where each quilt incorporate the stitching of different types of fabrics creating a unique design and special keepsakes that can be handed down through generations.
Taking place at the San Diego Convention centre at the end of September the San Diego Quilt show is a three-day event where quilters can compete for ribbons and be the best in the show. Each year features a different theme for the quilters to incorporate into their work, for example, the theme for 2018 was Wild West. There are also vendors that sell various types of quilts, quilting supplies, quilting books, and so much more. For those who want to learn how to quilt or want to learn new quilting skills, there are quilting classes taught by skilled quilters on various forms of the quilting skill.
The San Diego Quilt show was originated by quilting expert Kathy Green back in 1991 and in 1988 the San Diego Quilt, Inc. was established as a non-profit organization that helps to educate and promote various forms of needlecraft, including quilting.
