The Los Angeles Quilt Show & Fiber Art Fest is a celebration of community, where artists of all levels are invited to show their creations in a unique public space. The festivities include professional and peer-juried competitions, interactive classes and the chance to meet quilting guilds, supply companies, and fiber artists spanning an array of styles.

For Quilters

The L.A. Quilt Show & Fiber Art Fest at CRAFTED at the Port of Los Angeles is different from other shows. It is hosted by artists, and quilts are displayed aerially, hung from rafters so they may be viewed from both sides in all their glory.  Attendees are invited to don gloves provided by the event in order to touch and examine pieces. The L.A. Quilt Show is a unique sensory experience; a chance for quilters of all experience levels to see your favorite pieces displayed in a public venue within a mix of styles and alongside a gallery of fiber arts.

In addition to the exhibit, there will be an array of vendors to browse along with CRAFTED's handmade arts & crafts marketplace to shop.  There will also be classes to take and speakers to enjoy.  Sign up for our newsletter and Like Us on Facebook to receive updates.
