Alsace European Patchwork Festival

Join Sallieann Harrison and immerse yourself in textiles & patchwork in the heart of the beautiful Alsace! The Carrefour Européen du Patchwork is a show with a difference. In the four villages of Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, Sainte Croix-aux-Mines, Liepvre and Rombach-le-Franc in the wonderful Val d'Argent, historical buildings, village halls and places of worship are turned into galleries exhibiting over 1,200 textile works of art. We'll stay in the charming Old Town of Colmar whose cobblestoned streets and winding canals are lined with half-timbered medieval and renaissance buildings. Easily explored on foot, Colmar has a wealth of shops selling high quality goods and local produce, as well as first-class restaurants serving delicious Alsatian cuisine. In addition, Sallieann will host two half-day, hand-stitching workshops exclusively for Stitchtopia guests.

Carrefour Européen du Patchwork

The European Patchwork Meeting started in 1993 when the French Association of Anabaptism and Mennonite history organized in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines a celebration of the 300th anniversary of the birth of the Amish movement. Over the years the event has grown and now includes classes (bookable online), conferences, activities and a considerable commercial area specialising in everything 'patchwork'. Each year over 22,000 visitors are attracted to this internationally renowned event that is truly one of a kind!
Your ticket for the four days also includes use of the event organisers’ own shuttle buses that connect the four villages.
