  • Nimble Thimble Quilt Show at Hermann Farm
    Maifest Weekend - May 20 - 21, 2017
    Time:  Saturday 10am to 5pm, Sunday 12pm to 5pm

Quilt shows have long been a tradition of the Hermann Maifest and this year we welcome the Nimble Thimble Quilt Guild show to Hermann Farm. Many of new and historic handmade quilts will be on display at the Spirits House and throughout other historic buildings and on fences surrounding the area.  You will see quilters showing their craft in an old-fashioned quilting bee on the front porch of the Spirits House as well as a display of barn quilts, antique samplers and other forms of fiber art. Downtown Hermann merchants will also participate in a drawing for a "Nimble Thimble" handmade quilt.

Since 1993, members of the Nimble Thimble Quilt Guild have been meeting once a month to share their enthusiasm for quilting, to learn from each other and show off the beautiful fruits of their labors. While the faces have changed over the years, members are bound together by their love of quilting. Nimble Thimble meets in the basement of the St. Paul United Church of Christ on the third Wednesday of each month. Anyone with an interest in quilting, regardless of skill level, is invited to join.

The Quilt Show is open to the public.

  • Hermann Farm is closed for the season.
