Our Sponsors
Each year we rely on generous sponsors to provide prizes and awards for Festival of Quilts. This support encourages member participation and the pursuit of a high standard in design and workmanship. In turn we are able to promote a sponsoring business in the exhibition literature, Patches newsletter and QGSA web-site.

Many sponsors also give much valued support at Quilt Encounter and other Guild special events. Please utilise their services whenever you can. See a list of our valued sponsors at FOQ Sponsors

A very special note of thanks to those individuals and groups who respond to the sponsorship drive with nothing to gain but the satisfaction of encouraging fellow quilters.
