September 3, 2014 Wisconsin Public Television Leave a Comment

After a successful set-up day in the Exhibition Hall at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, we’re finally ready for the 10th Annual Quilt Expo…are you?

Thousands of quilters will make their way through these doors Sept. 4-6

This year promises to the biggest Quilt Expo yet, with a record 513 quilts on display, including 300 quilts in the judged and juried 10 category quilt contest. There are also several special quilt exhibits to admire, including quilts inspired by songs from the 1970s, a collection of cow-themed quilts and quilts from the Oneida Nation.

Quilt Expo is your chance to meet Nancy Zieman of “Sewing With Nancy” and to attend one of several educational lectures and Sit & Sew workshops. There’s also an extensive vendor mall with quilts for sale and the latest sewing and quilting supplies.

And, Quilt Expo will again hold the “Quilt to Give” community service project. There’s a large pile of fabric (picture below) that attendees will help make into quilts that will be donated to charity.

Join us Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 4-6. Get ready to “Escape. Create. Celebrate.” at the 10th annual Quilt Expo. Click to visit the Quilt Expo website.
