2018 MQ Quilt Show and Conference



This is our 40th Annual Quilt Show and Conference! We are thrilled to present you the opportunity to join in our Ruby celebration!

The Minnesota Quilters Show and Conference is a unique show. We are like a national show in that we attract masterpiece quilts from around the country (almost 900 last year), employ certified quilt judges, offer 4 days of classes and lectures from 18 - 20 nationally known faculty, and host 100+ vendors offering a wide range of products and services.

But we also offer the personal touch that you don't always find at national shows. A dedicated committee of 40 'chief' volunteers along with three staff lead the show. Over 175 volunteers provide the hands-on help needed to stage the show.

Based on feedback from last year's attendees, this year's committee has set goals to offer educational experiences for quilters of all types, encourage new quilters, expose the general public to the quilting arts, celebrate our quilt entrants, and of course, celebrate our 40th Anniversary!
