Fine Art of Fiber

Join us at Chicagoland’s ultimate quilting exhibition, the Fine Art of Fiber. Held at the Chicago Botanic Garden, this one-of-a-kind venue also provides our guild members with a unique opportunity to display their own work. It’s definitely a chance to see and be seen!

IQI has been showing quilts at the Chicago Botanic Garden for over 25 years. Two other fiber art guilds also exhibit at this event, offering a diverse range of work. It’s one of the reasons why attendance at the Fine Art of Fiber recently broke the 10,000 mark.

Can you think of a more perfect location to show your own work? IQI members may automatically enter one quilt a year as a benefit of membership; there's no fee. All quilt submissions are juried by the FAOF committee. Just visit the Fine Art of Fiber's site to download their exhibit entry form and submit it to us before our September meeting.

Entry to the show is also free. And IQI members receive a parking pass for the show in exchange for volunteering; visitors pay for parking. All visitors at the show may also vote on the Viewer’s Choice Awards for the show quilts as well as the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place quilts.

IQI Raffle Quilt ticket sales support our speakers and programs for the upcoming year. Everyone is asked to purchase or sell $25.00 worth of tickets. Our Boutique and Silent Auction also generate revenue for the guild and help support the Chicago Botanic Garden.
