MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Mancuso Show Management's World Quilt New England will return for its 16th year from Thursday, Aug. 16, through Saturday, Aug. 18, at the Center of New Hampshire.

Doors open each day at 10 a.m. and close at 5 p.m.

The three-day quilt festival allows quilt and sewing enthusiasts to appreciate the amazing artistry of textile artists from around the globe, providing a source of inspiration and a means to express new ideas.

The main attraction are entries in the 22nd World Quilt Competition, making its debut at the Manchester venue. The entries will be judged, and the highly sought after "Best of World" title will be awarded. Those in attendance will have an opportunity to be the first in the U.S. to view the new display of 2018 World Quilts.
