Festival of Quilts 2019

The Festival of Quilts is Europe's largest quilting exhibition and the ultimate destination for quilters. It is taking place at the NEC, Birmingham from Thursday 1st until Sunday 4th August 2019 and Bernina are proudly exhibiting! We have our sewing experts available all day, everyday to answer your questions and demonstrate on a wide range of Bernina machines (domestic and long-arm) so make sure you drop by our stand and say hi!

We also have something very exciting taking place on our stand across the show... a line-up of world-renowned quilters providing free live demonstrations! You can view the schedule for the live demonstrations below, we look forward to seeing you there - it will be one not to miss! If unfortunately you can't make it to the exhibition then do not worry because the majority of our demonstrations will be streamed live on the Bernina UK Facebook page, so you can experience the Festival and be a part of the session from home.

Demonstrations will take place on the Bernina stand each day at 11.00am and 2.00pm. The majority will also be live streamed on the Bernina UK Facebook page at these times.
