It is out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety and health of our membership and greater quilting community, that the board of directors has decided to cancel this year's quilt show and conference planned for June 10-13, 2020 in St. Cloud, Minnesota. This has been a difficult and painful decision but we feel it is the right thing to do at this time.

We do, however, look forward to holding the quilt show and conference at the DECC in Duluth on June 9-12, 2021. Please mark your calendars now… lodging announcements will be coming out later this spring.

Registrant Fees: All show registration and quilt entry fees already paid will be refunded to you by June 15 via method of your original payment. Please wait until after June 15 to contact us as we will be working as fast as we can to process refunds to hundreds of people and organizations. (Please note that donations and membership fees are non-refundable.) We appreciate your patience with this process.

While we feel this is something we must do to protect the health of our community, it is also a great financial setback for the organization. We understand that many are under a financial strain at this time, but ask that you consider making a tax-deductible donation to Minnesota Quilters. All donations will be used to directly help fund our operations.

Quilting is in our DNA and we will continue to look for ways in which we can foster this fulfilling art form for all of you. We will be sending out more details in the coming weeks and months as time and social distancing allow regarding future classes, mystery quilts, quilt donations, and quilt exhibitions. Please check our website homepage often to see what's coming up.

Lastly, but most importantly, THANK YOU ALL for supporting and encouraging us throughout this unusual pandemic as well as throughout the years. Your kindness and positive spirit make us feel as though we can get through this time and come out the other end – a better and stronger organization and community.

Best regards for your health and well-being,

Minnesota Quilters Board of Directors

Join over 6,000 quilting enthusiasts from 30 states and Canada at The Minnesota Quilters 42nd Annual Quilt Show and Conference to be held at the River's Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Our nationally known quilt show and conference includes well-known faculty who present a variety of quilting classes and lectures Wednesday through Saturday. Our show features a judged quilt competition with over $24,000 in cash prizes, as well as a non-judged quilt display. We will also have display areas of this year's challenge quilts, youth quilts, and traveling special exhibits.

Our 100+ vendors will be open Wednesday evening through Saturday afternoon in the exhibit hall to offer you many quilting related items you may not usually find near you. We invite you to attend the MQ banquet which offers you a chance to meet the faculty as well as this year's Quilter of the Year. Finally, be sure to stop by the Quilting for Others station where we invite you to drop in and help us make on-site quilts for charities. You'll be glad you did!
