Celebrating a tradition which was considered a usual household chore of hanging the bed quilts outside air after the winter months - the Northampton Airing of the Quilts is in it's 20th year. Long before sewing machines were invented, these quilts were sewn by hand and they are proudly displayed by their owners. This tradition is celebrated in many areas throughout the country and overseas. The main street in Northampton happens to be part of the North West Coastal Highway and is lined from one end to the other with colourful quilts, arts and crafts. They have had over 400 quilts in years before, and even hung the southern hemispheres LARGEST quilt (over some trucks!)

The Northampton Airing of the Quilts is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year.

It is pretty much a street festival which takes over the entire town. A huge day for the region and the local community.
