We summon all Mexican and foreign quilters to exhibit their quilts at the Patchwork Festival, which will take place in June 27 – 29, 2019 in the city of León, Guanajuato. México.

The quilts to be exhibited will have the opportunity to earn one of the prizes awarded by our sponsors, through a vote from the audience. They will also give us, the audience, an opportunity to learn and enjoy from your beautiful pieces.
