Our first market is just around the corner! We are going to Quilt Market 2023 (Tilkkumessut) in Mäntyharju on dates 30.6.-1.7., and hope to see as many of our current as well as future customers there!
What Is Tilkkumessut?
Quilt market Tilkkumessut was arranged in Mäntyharju, Finland, in 2022 for the first time and was able to boast over 900 visitors. This is huge for our small country and enormous for quilting, which compared to knitting is a tiny technique still.
For the second year in a row, thanks to EU funding, entry is free of charge.
You find workshops, pop-up shops like ours, product demonstrations and more there. Read more on the event website.
Where is Tilkkumessut?
You find Tilkkumessut here: Mäntyharjun kulttuurisali, Kompantie 22, 52700 Mäntyharju.
From Helsinki where we are, this corresponds to a bit over two hours of driving.
When Is Tilkkumessut 2023?
Tilkkumessut is arranged over two days, Friday 30th June and Saturday 1st July.
Hours are 10-16 and 10-15 respectively.
The dates are perfect for a road trip during or right at the start of summer vacation, don’t you think?
Tilkkumessut is a great place to be for both beginners, intermediate and advanced quilters. Come visit us!
My sister aka temporary shop assistant doesn’t sew or quilt except to reattach the occasional loose button, but I am happy to help you to the best of my abilities. If you are on the fence regarding starting this hobby, or wonder about a technique for which we have some strange-looking doodad for sale, please ask whatever is on your mind!
Will we meet at Tilkkumessut 2023?
