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, vendors, classes and 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!

Machine Quilters Exposition is a privately held Limited Liability Corporation

MQX Spray it Away!

  June 4, 2018

Cool Tools - What's New?

Fine Mist Spray Bottle

Maybe you've already discovered these? It appears that hair stylists have but they are new to quilting. At least they're new to us.

One of our New England vendors, Full Line Stencil, had them at the show in April and we both got one. So what do we use them for? As longarm quilters, we see backing fabrics that sometimes come in pretty wrinkly. Since pressing them is cumbersome and time-consuming, laying the backing over the rails, mist with water and voila.......  go wind bobbins and the wrinkles are gone. BIG time saver!

Put Mary Ellen's in it to keep at your iron. They are available at Full Line Stencil and other online sellers. What do you use your mist bottle for?

We've added two classes to the schedule for Tuesday since many of you come in early for the Ice Cream Social. Cindy Lohbeck will do two scarf classes that day (she'll repeat that class during the show too). Wear it to the Ice Cream Social as we will have a NEW CONTEST with prizes. Wear your most fun/funky scarf and we'll judge the one we think is the coolest. 

Mailers & Handouts 

The MQX Mailer (6" x 9" tri-fold brochure) and Handouts (half sheet size) are available next week. If you have mail orders or you're headed      to a quilt show or guild meeting, please bring some with you. Let us know how many you need and where to send them to.
