Cunningham Children's Home
So much to see and do: Quilt Show, Quilt Auction, Quilt Boutique, Centerpieces & Such, Gift Shop, Guest Speakers, Bake Sale, Campus Tours and more!
Each year, Cunningham Children’s Home hosts its Festival of Quilts in the Spiritual Life Center on the Cunningham campus in Urbana. The Festival is Cunningham’s signature fundraiser and honors the tradition of the United Methodist Women, and the quilts they, and quilters from across Illinois, have donated for our kids since 1895. This year, the Festival will be in-person and online.
The Festival includes a collection of show quilts that creatively blur the lines between conventional quilt making and fine art. Quilts of all sizes are also available to purchase through our quilt auction and quilt boutique. Visitors can also enjoy home-baked goods from the bake sale, handcrafted treasures from the gift shop, quilting expertise from guest speakers, campus tours and more. NEW THIS YEAR: Centerpieces & Such featuring beautiful seasonal wreaths, mantle pieces, planters, table centerpieces–home accents of all kinds–which will help bring cheer and summer vibes to your entryway and tables!
Tickets—a suggested donation of $5—are available at the door and online. Proceeds raised from Cunningham’s signature fundraiser will help to meet the critical needs of the 794 youth, adults and families served this year.
