It is with very deep regret that the Ailsa Craig Quilt and Fibre Arts Festival have made the decision
to suspend the Festival this year due to the low number of quilt entries.
It by no means reflects the quality of the pieces that were entered, which we were told, were
outstanding, but, even with the work of our featured quilters and the Magna Carta quilts, there
would still not have been enough quilts and fibre arts to justify going on with the exhibition.
It was a very difficult decision for us, but it was apparent that the festival was not going to be the
world class exhibition we are known for.
The Festival will be returning with New Zealand in 2018, and we are very excited to be hosting
such an amazing country!
We thank you for you support of the Festival and look forward to welcoming you again next
