At the Fashion Institute of Technology Conference Center

Ticket Sales Online:

In quilting, like everything else, we find that what's old is new again: new blocks formed from old designs, new fabrics from old wallpaper designs, new quilting designs from old motifs.  We are making the most of the old and the new!

As usual, we'll have lots of quilts, vendors, and our raffle quilt, plus our Quilt Bazaar.
Tickets are $11, plus a nominal convenience charge.  Ticket holders will be able to get on the Express entrance line. No standing in line outside, you'll be able  to come in as soon as the doors open.


 Information about the show can also be found in our monthly newsletter and at our meetings.  Should you have any questions, please email the Quilt Show Team directly at eqgshow@gmail.com.
