The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show 2020: Free Virtual Experience

September 10, 2020 @ 8:30 am - September 12, 2020 @ 4:00 pm

Join The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show for the ultimate virtual adventure for quilt enthusiasts of all skill levels. Free Registration is open now at QuiltShow.com!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 16th annual Great Wisconsin Quilt Show will be a free online-exclusive, virtual experience this September 10–12th. While we will miss seeing you in person, we look forward to bringing you the Quilt Contest exhibit, educational opportunities and more – virtually at QuiltShow.com.

Free registration is now open for the three-day event, presented by PBS Wisconsin and Nancy Zieman Productions, LLC. All quilt lovers are invited to learn, laugh and draw inspiration from each other in this new online and interactive event. Online educational sessions, led by expert quilters, present the latest in creations and techniques.

The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show’s main attraction is the 10-category quilt contest exhibit, showcasing the incredible talents of quilters from across the country. Featured quilts range from traditional sizes and shapes to work by young quilters and innovative pictorial quilts. Virtual attendees will be treated to an interactive, 3-D quilt gallery, with inspiration around every corner.

The virtual Great Wisconsin Quilt Show will also include shopping opportunities from trusted vendors, featuring the latest fabrics and notions; and an online community service project — Quilt to Give — in which attendees donate their materials and skills to create bed-size quilts for those in need.

Participants of The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show can also be part of the exclusive online premiere of the all-new documentary, Nancy Zieman: Extraordinary Grace, coming to PBS Wisconsin in late 2020.

Visit QuiltShow.com for full details, register and explore the event schedule now.

The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show is presented by PBS Wisconsin and Nancy Zieman Productions LLC. Proceeds from The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show support PBS Wisconsin programs and community outreach projects.
