News and Trends from International Quilt Market

MARKET TO MARKET

 

This year’s spring Quilt Market is in the books! As usual, we were inspired by the creativity and innovation on display at the show, and energized by all of the amazing people we saw…and met! And we heard a great deal of positive feedback from both exhibitors and attendees about both the convention center and the city of St. Louis.

Now it’s time for us to turn our eyes toward fall Quilt Market in Houston, and making it the best event possible. But before St. Louis is too far behind in the rearview mirror, we’d like to share the final figures from the show.

 

In whole, there were 405 exhibitors at spring Quilt Market occupying 835.5 booths. And of those, 23 were entirely new to the show. See which of them won a Best Booth Award HERE.

 

The final attendance number came in at 2,104 people, with 1,350 of those also enrolling for classes and events. A total of 834 people attended Schoolhouse Series and 942 people joined the excited crowds at Sample Spree.

 

Fall Quilt Market in Houston will take place October 28-30 this year, with classes and events beginning on October 26. If you’re planning to join us, be sure to check out the special Market hotel and transportation discounts on our website HERE.

 

Next year’s spring Quilt Market will return to Portland, Oregon, May 18-20, 2018.
Information will be updated as it’s available on our website HERE.
