WMQFA Winter Quilt Show Coming February 29, 2020

Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts Assuming Control of Winter Quilt Show at Washington County Fair Park

Cedarburg, Wis.  – After ten successful years, Anne Books has transferred ownership of the Winter Quilt Show to the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts (WMQFA). WMQFA’s first Winter Quilt Show will be held at the Washington County Fair Park in West Bend on February 29, 2020. No show will be held in 2019 as the museum plans the transition and gears up for the 2020 show.

Ms. Books states: “I want to thank all the past vendors, volunteers and local quilters for making the show such a fun event to be part of. I am so pleased that the Museum will be continuing this exciting event for years to come. I'll be shopping there next year!” The WMQFA is proud to continue the tradition begun by Anne Books and thank her for establishing this wonderful show. The 2020 WMQFA Winter Quilt show will feature fabulous vendors, a gorgeous quilt show, tasty food, fun door prizes and some new surprises!

WMQFA is actively looking for sponsors interested in supporting the event. Sponsors may contact the museum directly. Vendor information will be ready this summer. Those interested in purchasing tickets in advance will be able to do so this summer at the museum and online. Tickets will also be available at the door.


About the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts

The Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts (WMQFA), located just east of historic downtown Cedarburg, Wisconsin, is dedicated to creating, preserving and displaying cultural treasures and educating the public about the artistic, cultural, historic and social importance of quilts and fiber arts. A primary mission is to teach people of all ages and abilities the time-honored traditions of fiber arts such as quilting, weaving, embroidery and knitting. Our 1850s farmstead setting has allowed us to combine preservation of craft with preservation of historical agriculture buildings, offering a unique setting for enjoying an afternoon, taking a class, attending a lecture, or playing in a farm setting. The WMQFA is a non-profit 501 (3)c business. For more information go to www.wiquiltmuseum.com.
