Bainbridge Quilt Festival 2016-Year 4
This Festival is a celebration of quilts and quilters held outdoors along Winslow Way, Bainbridge Island, WA. As a non-juried show, quilters of all levels and styles are welcome to enter their work. Inspired by the joy and beauty of the Sister's Outdoor Quilt Show in Sister's Oregon, Barbara Kirk of Esther's Fabrics and several quilting businesses and groups set out to stage a small version of the Sister's show. Bainbridge Island Modern Quilt Guild (BIMQG), White Lotus Quilting, Beach Garden Quilts and Pink Chalk Studio as well as many Island businesses and individuals pitched in to make a wonderful debut in September 2012.
BIMQG now organizes the Festival with the continued support of local quilters and Winslow Way businesses.
