Meet us at the QuiltCon Together 2021, the modern quilting eventsarah
Each year we look forward to attending QuiltCon, an exhibition celebrating the exciting world of modern quilting. Four days of workshops, lectures, shopping, and of course, looking at all the fabulous quilts await you from February 18th to 22nd!
The world being still in the grip of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers of QuiltCon, the Modern Quilt Guild, have created a fully virtual show for the first time.
Quiltmania will be vendor at this year’s show with a virtual “booth” where attendees can learn more about our quilting books and magazines. We are looking forward to connecting with quilters both near and far, and celebrating the beautiful world of modern quilting.
