Large patchwork was presented as part of the festival. Four and a half meters wide and 25 meters long gurama left everyone astonished. The presentation took place outside the Maiden Tower.

A giant patchwork was created in Icherisheher and Gala State Historical and Ethnographic Reserve.

A number of events were successfully held within the festival, including a scientific and practical conference, an exhibition of arts and crafts and a fair and sale, master classes, art therapy, book presentation, etc.
