The 2013 Quilt & Fiber Art Festival, October 4 – 6  featured an International Show of Juried & Judged quilts, fiber art, and wearable art in Maple Hall and the La Conner Civic Garden Club, both locations within a half-block of the Museum.  The work comes from seven countries, including the U.S., Canada, Taiwan, Japan, The Netherlands, Australia, and the United Kingdom.  The city-wide Festival also included a Quilt Walk, Specialty Vendors, and a Silent Auction.
