Welcome to the MQX Quilt FestivalsTM Blog!

New England 
     Manchester, New Hampshire (April 10-13, 2019)

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!

Thank You and Dream Big with MQX

As most of you know....... when we finish with one show, we have to move onto the next. We haven't been home a month, yet it's time to prepare for the New England show. 

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the students, vendors, attendees, volunteers, and entrants for being part of MQX Midwest. We have yet to put on a MQX that we haven't had a blast at. You all make MQX fun, interesting, and worth our time.  See you next year! 


Think Big, Dream Big.............

This seems to be a common theme of late.

Our next show, MQX New England, has loads of excitement building with new faculty that are filled with new ideas and innovative designs. There are new classes, techniques, and ideas to help you to Dream Big!

Oh, and new this year there are two-part classes, both single day and two day 'retreat' type classes. Of course we are thrilled to offer up so many new choices, new teachers, and of course, fun.....
