Quilters’ tips for exhibiting at the Quilt Show
If you are exhibiting your work at the Quilt Show, there are a few tips that you should follow to make the experience as smooth as possible for both you and the visitors. First and foremost, always arrive early to set up and shop. This will give you enough time to get your work in order and answer any questions that may come your way. Make a portfolio of your work so that potential buyers can see what you have to offer in detail. Always be polite to those who stop by and be sure to follow Quilt Show etiquette while exhibiting. Use proper quilting tools so that your stitches are clearly visible and don’t snip off threads while working. Finally, take advantage of networking opportunities.

Quilters’ tips for shopping at the Quilt Show
Before you hit the show floor, it’s important to consider what you need. Quilters often have a specific vision for their quilts, and it’s important to stick to that vision when shopping for fabric. Take some time to sketch out your quilt top before shopping so you know what size and shape of fabric you need.
Another thing to keep in mind is the difference between fabrics that can be used for quilting and fabrics that should be used for other purposes. For example, a cotton quilt might be beautifully finished with a polyester batting, but the batting will pucker and stretch over time. Use fabrics wisely!
While at the show, be sure to ask questions about fabrics and notions. A knowledgeable staff is always happy to help. And don’t forget to take advantage of show specials—you might find a great deal that you can’t pass up!
If you’re interested in quilts, fabric, notions, or even just procrastinating, the Quilt Show is a great place to go. Expect to find a wide variety of items, from quilts to fabrics to notions, and be able to chat with the exhibitors about their work.
