February is flying by and like worker bees we are flying around getting prepared for the upcoming show. Now is the time to sign up for classes, take advantage of the opportunity to push yourself to new levels and in person with the teachers that will show you how to incorporate new skills into your quilting life.
VENDORS - The MQX Vendor Malls are about full with one 10' x 10' space remaining. Could we squeeze in a couple more? Sure. Here are a few of the newest additions to the MQX Vendor Malls. Click here for the most recent list of vendors.
The Felting Studio - Kits and tapestries that can be quilted
Keepsake Quilting - Recently sold to Pineapple Quilts, with new fabrics and kits
Barbara Persing - she's teaching and vending this year
Sue's Fabric World - panels, cheater fabric, and unique fabrics
Ideal Jewelry - beautiful silver jewelry
Rita's Racques - template and ruler storage solutions
Yarn & Fiber - yarns and fibers for knitting and weaving
These are but a few of the more than 60 vendors. Of course all the longarm dealers will be there with machines for you to try. If you're considering purchasing a longarm or upgrading what you have, MQX is the only machine quilting focused show remaining in the US.
Quilt Show Competition Notifications will be sent this week. We will release the list of accepted artists on the 20th with acceptance letters to follow in the few days afterward.
Supply List Clarification Many times teachers provide generic supply lists assuming you will bring your own equipment. At MQX there is no need to lug your sewing machine (unless otherwise stated, see below) because they are provided by our generous sponsors/vendors.
ONLY ONE CLASS has the option for you to bring your own machine
and that is Class E226 Seascapes with Marjan Kleupfel
Lodging and Travel Information - If you're flying in and need to take the convention hotel shuttle, please be reminded that the hotel has been renamed, DoubleTree. Click here for information on all the MQX hotels and free daily shuttle.
