We'd love you to join us at New Zealand's next Quilt Symposium

We're planning a wonderful quilting fiesta4-9 October 2022, in Lower Hutt, Wellington. So mark this date in your calendar, and keep your eye on this website as we update it with information about classes, special events, exhibitions, lectures...

We're committed to hosting the symposium, and staying focussed on what matters - our people and our talent. We are reaching out to lots of international tutors but because of COVID, we're having to be flexible and have back-up plans like:

  • having a NZ, Australia and Pacific bubble or a NZ only bubble
  • delaying a year or more
  • not having a printed Registration book like normal, but instead, a downloadable PDF version (so we can make last minute changes)
  • replacing goodie bags with daily SPOT prizes throughout the festival, and looking for other ways of saying thanks for being part of our festival (Bernina has already commited to a Keep Cup for each participant).

By being careful, we are keeping our pre-registration to NZ$35 per person. Note: this is in New Zealand dollars, is non refundable and goods and services tax (GST) is not applicable. (See FAQS for other information including our Quilt Symposium 2022 registration cancellation/refund policy.)

  • As usual, the lowest pre-registration numbers will be prioritised for classes.
  • Once you have completed your online pre-registration (and given us your email address) we'll email you regular updates and newsletters, including any changes in response to COVID. Also we'll keep this website updated with information on accommodation, tutors, exhibition details, etc.
  • If your email address changes let us know by emailing hello@quiltsymposium2022.co.nz
  • If you register before 31st January 2021 you'll go in the draw to win a new Bernina B475 QE machine valued at NZ$3,299 (inc GST) which we will draw in February 2021.


So please complete your online pre-registration, and we look forward to the first event of the symposium....the announcing of the winner of the Bernina B475 QE machine.
