The Northern Illinois Quilt Fest held in July and August, and will be held in September 2011. As part of this event, anchor sites across Northern Illinois' six counties will be hosting a quilt exhibit. Other events, both quilt-related and non-quilt-related will be held in each of the six counties including Winnebago.
