The Shipshewana Quilt Festival has teamed up with the Shipshewana-Scott Elementary School to bring you a day of quilting Education & Entertainment!

We are excited to announce that we will again host the Quilt Academy Event for 2021 at the Shipshewana Scott Elementary School!

Where else than a local school itself would you enjoy such an opportunity?​

With multiple subjects taught simultaneously, you will have endless opportunities to learn about the hottest new tools, techniques and technology.

Your classes will start and end with actual school bells!

Each session is held in its own classroom with presentations by a variety of nationally and locally known educators, artists and entertainers.

  • Educational: Topics will cover the fundamentals of quilting

  • Technique: Sessions will show you different approaches to creating your projects

  • Product: Classes will demonstrate the latest notions & tools that can make your quilting easier

Your Quilt Academy registration will include a gourmet box lunch and entrance to your choice of over 100 sessions. With so much to learn and the flexibility to choose the topics when they best fit your schedule, we have left the timing of a lunch break up to you.

Quilt Academy Instructor Process & Procedures

The following information is provided to clarify the processes that have been adopted by the Shipshewana Quilt Festival for instructors at Quilt Academy. Because of the interest in teaching and the desire to offer high quality sessions, the Education Committee has adopted a proposal and approval process for instructors.​

The Request for Proposals is posted on the web site late summer with a deadline of mid-fall for the next calendar year's show. The application deadline for consideration for next year's show is October 31. This allows all involved in the process at least 6 months to plan for the event. Instructor decisions are made early winter followed by notifications to all applicants.

​The show maintains a contact list of those wishing to receive notification of Request of Proposal availability and will forward you information when it becomes available. To add your name to this list, please e-mail your contact information to

​The organizers do identify alternate selections in the case of last minute cancellations. Should you desire to be considered for this list, please contact us at
