Escape. Create. Celebrate.

Be part of the ultimate quilting adventure in Madison, one of the nation’s most popular cities and a great place to enjoy the beginnings of autumn in the Midwest. Located among beautiful lakes and parks, the city offers unparalleled shopping, dining and recreational opportunities, and the perfect getaway for quilting enthusiasts—Quilt Expo 2019, Sept. 5, 6, and 7. Whether a seasoned quilter, a novice or just curious to learn more about quilting, all quilting buffs will thoroughly enjoy this opportunity to learn, laugh and draw inspiration from quilting masters who will share their ideas and expertise. Presented by Wisconsin Public Television (WPT) and Nancy Zieman Productions, Quilt Expo is designed to capture and revitalize the creative quilting spirit. And we are so happy to be part of it!

Things to see include:

The winners and entries of the 2019 Modern Mini Quilt Challenge, third annual and sure to amaze!

Quilt Expo hosts a 10-category juried and judged Quilt Contest. Quilters of all levels have the opportunity to enter a maximum of four quilts into this exciting contest. Prizes will be awarded in each category, as well as to the best of show and viewers’ choice quilts.

There will be stage presentations teaching about the latest tools and quilting notions (Bernie will be on stage too!) Join us for a 30–45 minute stage presentation. Learn how to use the latest tools and quilting notions. Stage presentations take place in the vendor mall and are included in admission. There are 24 presentations from which to choose.

Community Service Projects,  last year at Quilt Expo, 14 bed-size quilts were generously donated to the Quilt to Give community service project. Plus an additional 15 quilts were stitched and completed by Quilt Expo attendees at the event. All of these quilts were donated to Enchanted Makeovers and Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (DAIS). Baby Lock will again sponsor Quilt to Give in the atrium. Here are three ways you can participate: 1—Plan a 1/2-hour or more of time to sit, sew and give. 2—Donate fabric in bright colors (1/4 yds. or more)—fabric coordinates are welcome. 3—Donate a new bed quilt. Want to review the quilting process ahead of time, or see what type of fabrics to donate? Go to nancyzieman.com/blog and click on the “Quilt to Give” tab. You’ll see the process in 10 easy steps.

Quilt Appraisals available too!
