Farmington Valley Quilters is sponsoring its third annual Connecticut Hang-A-Quilt Day event on Saturday, June 19 with a rain date on June 20. This free outdoor quilt show will showcase the art and beauty of quilting.

In a time of social distancing, this is the perfect event for art lovers and quilters. Anyone who owns a handmade quilt is encouraged to display it outside their home on a fence, clothesline, railing, tree, garage, chair or any other creative way to display it. Neighbors who drive or walk by will enjoy its beauty.

Quiltfolk Magazine covered Connecticut Hang-A-Quilt Day in its January 2021 issue that featured Connecticut quilters. This national magazine is helping to promote the event nationally.

Farmington Valley Quilters will have a large display in the center of Simsbury and also plan to list addresses to view other quilts. Last year quilts were displayed all over Connecticut and quilt shops helped to promote the event. Plan to participate to showcase Connecticut. 

If you participate and post a picture of your quilt on social media with #CTHangAQuiltDay, everyone will be able to enjoy it no matter how confined we may be.
