35th Annual Folk Art Quilt Show

September 24 – 26th
10:00 – 4:00 PM
Travel a stitch back in time at our 35th Annual Folk Art Quilt Show! Just in time for Fall, we’re getting cozy with our annual quilt show– one of our best-attended events and largest quilt shows in Rhode Island. Each year, the Metz Exhibit Hall transforms into a gallery of handmade local quilts. In the past, up to 75 quilts have been displayed!
This year, the quilt show will be held Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
Come discover the history, artistry, and talent of local artisans and sneak a peek into the museum’s textile collection. See traditional patterns side by side with the newest trends in a modern expression. Explore South County’s textile production history.
