Dear Sir / Madam, After 20 editions of the Open European Quilt Championships and a wonderful 20th Anniversary in 2016, we have reached a difficult decision.

Unfortunately the event is no longer able to cover its costs, and with a heavy heart we have chosen to end the Open European Quilt Championship & Textile Festivals.  Over the last 20 years, textiles lovers have visited our event from all around the world, and we have met so many wonderful people and exhibited countless special works of art. We are very grateful to you for this, and will look back on these last years with fondness.

We would like to take this moment to thank everyone who has contributed to the event over the last years and made it possible.

Of course we will be here to assist you through these final stages, and to answer any questions you might have.  You can find the answers for most questions directly on our website at www.textile-festivals.com. If you have any other questions regarding this decision, please email us at info@textile-festivals.com .

Warm regards,

Ada Honders en Robbie Beeks"
