“Connection of times. From the past into the future” – that’s the main theme of the Suzdal’s International Quilt Festival in 2017. Interesting, thoughtful and serious theme will allow the participants to take a wider glance at the versatility of the modern life, find something to pass on to the future generations. We hope that human values such as love, kindness and spirituality will remain eternal for all times.
In our routine lives we tend to put a lot of strain on our back. Neck problems in the later stages of our lives are a very common problem. The working environment in the modern era tends to only worsen the situation by the time you reach the old age.During the Suzdal festival we invite the festival participants to join a specially organized daily gymnastics group. Main focus of the complex workout will be on the joints. Exercises involved are aimed to warm up the muscles, ligaments, joints and to strengthen the spine. Workouts are directed by Tatiana Kalinskaya, who is convinced that you can feel healthy and youthful at any age. You can sign up for the exercises by calling to +7(910)462 27 78. Training sessions are free for the festival participants.
Participants of the Suzdal International Quilt Festival (www.quiltshow.ru ) will come together to make a big and beautiful Quilt that they will then gift to disabled and old people. In the centre of the Quilt creation lays an old quilting technique called “Grandmother’s garden”. It gets sewed together from small hexahedrons with the use of any leftover cloth. Authors can make embroidery with their name or country, or anything else on every hexahedron that they made. During the Festival, which will last for a whole week from 10th till 16th of August 2017, quilters taking part in “Blooming garden” will come together every evening and sew the Quilt. In this way every one of them will give something to the common charity event. Participation conditions are easy: http://www.quiltshow.ru/news/detail/45070/

We have good news!
Project of the International Quilt Festival in Suzdal was approved at the government level as an annual event. It will be held in August.
"The Soul of Russia" is the name of our festival, which aims to unite the best crafters of Russia, to demonstrate the possibilities of patchwork and to develop the folk traditions, to seek new ideas and captivate the youngsters with the creativity.
Festival invites quilters from different countries and therefore has the status of an international festival. We share our ideas and skills, and learn about other countries.
The theme of the main competition of the festival will change every year.
In 2017, we chose Сonnection between generations as the theme of the main competition.
From past into the future ...All genuine feelings in a person are born under the influence of love, the comprehensive and encouraging feeling. To expand on this idea through the creative patchwork is the task of the main competition of the Festival.
