A Deeper Dive

Amazing quilt history and tradition of Dutch quilting

Quilt making has a long history in the Netherlands. The oldest reference to a Dutch quilt dates back to the 13th century, but the tradition really began to flourish in the 1600s when the Dutch East India Company started trading chintz from India in exchange for spices from the Far East. In the 18th Century, quilting became a popular pastime for many Dutch women and their creations played an important part in the development of quilting across the world.

The Dutch have always been hugely innovative and influential in design, especially in quilting and fibre art and Patchwork and Quilting Days, in Rijswijk gives you the chance to see plenty of exciting, modern techniques and designs. This smaller setting is a lovely way to enjoy world-class designs and also gives you the chance to meet some of the designers, many of whom are regular contributors to international exhibitions, who will be more than happy to share their passion and enthusiasm with you. Whether you're a curious novice or an experienced quilter, there is something here for everyone to enjoy and learn from.
