Welcome to the MQX Quilt FestivalsTM Blog!

New England 
     Manchester, New Hampshire (April 15-18, 2020)

MQX Quilt Festivals are conducted with a focus on machine quilters. For the last five years, the class offerings have been broadened to include more educational opportunities in piecing, embroidery, business, art, and design. Each show offers a wide variety of quilts on display, 60+ vendors, 125+ classes, and fun evening events.

We offer personalized service and consider each student an honored guest. It is our mission to create an environment to learn from the best instructors in the quilting industry, meet fellow quilters, and keep everyone current on the latest products and techniques in the quilt world. 

Welcome to the MQX Experience!
