Yes, there is a National Quilting Day! It’s the third Saturday in March. In Calendar 2021 National Quilting Day will land on March 20th. So mark your calendar!
In June, 1991 the NQA, National Quilt Association, designated the third Saturday of March the ‘National Quilting Day’ and many quilters consider this day a Holiday. We can always use another Holliday right!
Over time ‘National Quilting Day’ has unofficially expanded to the whole month of March. National Quilting Day/Month of is now recognized world wide as a time to celebrate the history of quilting.
During the month of March quilters will be sharing the rich history of quilting. The oldest quilt still around to day is ‘The Sicilian Tristian Quilt’ said to have been made around 1360-1400.
