Combine a visit to the beautiful city of Nantes in France with the unforgettable quilting show, Pour l’Amour du Fil (For The Love of the Thread).

The 7th edition of this mesmerising show in Nantes will again take place at the impressive venue of Parc des Expositions of "la Beaujoire", Nantes, in the XXL Hall.

This show is renowned for its friendly and sociable atmosphere and for its inspirational quilting displays. More than 20 quilting artists will decorate a number of specially created ‘houses’ with their stunning quilts.

As a visitor you can expect to witness examples of the very best of quilting, embroidery, sewing, crochet, knitting, ribbon embroidery, sewing and textile art. You will be in the company of like minded enthusiasts who are demonstrating or simply talking about and sharing their techniques. There is also a brilliant opportunity for shopping for those sought–after accessories, with a vast array of top quality vendors at the show.

Nantes is said to be one of the most desirable places to live in France and the city has become a popular and attractive destination for visitors wanting to visit a French city bursting with culture, art, excellent restaurants, historic buildings and attractions. Nantes enjoys the perfect combination of open green spaces and city life, after a concerted effort to create the perfect city environment by the authorities. There are over 99 parks and squares, 100,000 trees and Nantes boasts four ‘Natura 2000’ zones breeding rich biodiversity, on a city built on the banks of the Loire.

There are some really unique attractions in Nantes too, like Les Machines de L’Ile - a collection of strange machines – including a giant mechanical elephant! Another great suggestion for a visit is the Château des Ducs de Bretangne (Castle of the Dukes of Brittany), a fortress built in the late Middle Ages that houses the Nantes History Museum, which has been given the Musée de France quality award.

If you are looking for a great quilting show combined with a fascinating French city, this is a tour you are sure to enjoy.
