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

Sharpen your Quilting Skills and Scissors!

  March 11, 2018



MQX - New England has had a record-breaking year with 207 finalists and almost 300 entries accepted into the competition. With top notch, generous sponsors, we have also increased the prize money!

Will you be a winner? Find out on Wednesday, April 11th. 
Free to entrants, wristband purchase required for everyone else. 

It's time to sharpen your quilting skills ........ AND your scissors.  After a long hiatus we have convinced the one, the only, Scissor Man, Brint Fanizza to return to Manchester! Make a note to bring your scissors in to be sharpened while you're taking one of our fabulous classes. It's never to late to sign up for some great classes and events! 

There are currently 37 sold out classes, many more with only a few seats remaining. A new feature of the MQX website is the real-time indication that the class is sold out and the immediate waitlist option for students to decide whether to be added to the wait list. Click here for the list of Sold Out Classes. 


 Lecture/Demo Classes are typically technique-based and apply to anyone learning a new skill whether using a domestic sewing machine or frame system. Don't miss out on some great Lecture/Demo classes from Judi Madsen, Clem Buzick, Margaret Solomon Gunn, Jane Hauprich, Jessica Gamez, Karlee Porter, Barbara Persing, Dustin Farrell, Deborah Poole...... and many more. Click here for a complete list on the Lecture/Demo page


Supply List Tutorial - Not all classes have a supply list.  If you signed up for a class WITH a supply list, there are several places to look:

     1.  If you chose a class with a supply list, instructions were sent with your receipt at the time of purchase.

     2.  MQX has a dedicated supply list page.

     3.  On or about March 28th, all registered students will receive information on downloading the student packet. The packet will include supply lists, ONLY if the classes you chose have a one. 

     4.  Supply list links are located at the class listing 24/7.... go to the class calendar page and scroll to your chosen class number to see if there is a supply list link. No link means no supply list.  


The Vendor Mall is SOLD OUT! There are more than 60 vendors with machines to try, tools, rulers, thread, fabrics, clothing, and supplies for every aspect of quilting. Check out the vendor page and  to make your shopping list. 

New for 2018 - the center of the show program has a new Quilters Qoupon section. These coupons are good for the entire show and might be a buy-one get-one, percentage off certain items, or a dollar discount.   


Come join us for a fun, educational, MQX Experience!
