4th of July 2

From our Home to Yours.....

Summer has finally arrived! After winter's long hold on our part of the country, it's great to feel the season's warm days, sitting outside with a cold lemonade, and burgers on the grill. 

Although we work on both shows a year or more in advance, we are consistently trying to dispel that "MQX is only for machine quilters." This is so not true! MQX offers more than 125 classes for quilters, piecers, business owners....... for example: 

Design a Wholecloth Quilt - With a focus on design, your unique wholecloth could be quilted at a longarm, regular sewing machine, painted, needle punched, hooked..... the sky's the limit. Whatever you decide, this class will give you the tools to create a one-of-a-kind piece. Click here to learn more. 

Fabric Dyeing  - Besides being super fun, there's no need to quilt it, you could make clothing or use it for home decorating. What will you use your fabric for? Click here to check out these diverse dyeing classes. 

Technology - Goodness.... who knew that a quilting conference would incorporate technology? With classes like Modern Technology for Quilters, Tools like PhotoShop and Electric Quilt, iPad Apps, and creating your own fabric. Click here to get your technology fix.

Piecing -  Click here for all the piecing classes.

Please share the news with your quilting friends, guild, and local quilt shops. MQX is a quilt show for all Quilters! A comprehensive flyer is available for your mail orders, quilt guild, and groups.If you need some of our detailed fliers, let JL know


One more thingThe Quilt Competition deadline is July 20th - there's a LOT of prize money to be won. Seriously, why shouldn't we be making out a check to you?  Competition Form is here.


FlagHappy Independence Day - Please be safe - use caution when using any fireworks and please try to be mindful of our veterans that might be suffering from PTSD.... our fur friends too.
