NEW for our 2019 Quilt Show:
- In 2019, a $7.00 donation will gain visitors admission to our show.
- We’ve welcomed a fourth Participating Quilt Club, the Winchester Modern Quilters.
- Quilt categories have gone by the wayside, but you’ll still find our Show Challenge and Participating Quilt Groups challenges on display.
- Viewers will be asked to select their FIVE favorite quilts in the show in addition to selecting their favorite Show Challenge quilt and ONE favorite quilt from each of the four Club Challenge quilts.
- And last, but not least, those entering quilts will be able to submit their quilts (up to 5 per person) ONLINE, making registration easier for everyone.

The Northern Shenandoah Valley Quilt Show and quilters are dedicated to understanding and learning more about quilting and perpetuating this art form. Our skills range from beginner to professional, but we all enjoy a good time and we’re good at sharing information and helping one another. Whether you are a resident or a visitor to our area, we invite you to attend our biennial quilt show or our regular meetings. .
We hope you will explore this website and join us in the wonderful world of fabric arts. Here you will not only find information concerning the next quilt show, but also information about the local quilt groups and featured fabric artists.
