2017 MQ Quilt Show and Conference


Our show is brought to you by volunteers. YOU are the most valued and treasured resource Minnesota Quilters has. It will take over 600 volunteers working together to put on the successful quilt show in June 2017. Each volunteer with 2 hours of service will receive a Volunteer Pin as a token of appreciation for time given. We have volunteer shifts ranging from one to four hours and can start on the half hour, so you will have more opportunities to volunteer and enjoy the show. For each two hours of service, your name will be entered into daily prize drawings.

Small Quilt Auction

At each Annual Show, Minnesota Quilters, Inc. offers small quilts and other related quilt items that have been generously donated by our membership, teachers, and other interested quilters in a silent auction. The donations can include small quilts (100 inches perimeter or smaller), table runners, purses, wearable art pins, fabric postcards, dolls, bowls, pillow cases, pillows and other small items. These items will illustrate to our show visitors the broad variety of quilting art AND offer our members an opportunity to demonstrate skills, generosity, and support of the Minnesota Quilters organization. In addition some items will be placed on a "Buy It Now" table where items can be purchased without bidding.

All donations will be welcome beginning January 1, 2017. Please use a safety pin to attach a label with your name, address, telephone number and email (if you have one) and the title (if there is one).

Auction proceeds are used to support the mission of Minnesota Quilters, Inc. including grants and scholarship programs, the TV shows on quilting aired in Minnesota and our region, and to meet other needs of this volunteer organization.

You may bring your donations to the MQ meetings or mail them to Attn. Small Quilt Auction, Minnesota Quilters, Inc., 253 State Street, St Paul, MN 55107-1612.

Donations will be accepted right up to the start of the show.

All donations become the property of Minnesota Quilters, Inc. although you can buy yours back if you cannot part with it!! Your donations are tax deductible. Items not sold will be used for other MQ charitable purposes. We will encourage the bidders to be generous.

Thank you for donating and for bidding at the show.
