Quilt Fiesta Santa Fe is a biennial two day celebration of extraordinary quilting presented by the Northern New Mexico Quilt Guild. The event is held at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center and features over 200+ quilts that will be judged by a certified quilt judge. Some of the exhibited quilts will be for sale. Many exciting vendors will be open for your shopping pleasure, and the Gift Shop will have one-of-a-kind items made by our talented guild members. You will see exhibits by specialty groups such as Art Quilts, Surface Design, Applique, Contemporary Quilts and Embroidery, as well as exhibits that highlight the Community Service and Educational outreach of the NNMQG.
