Quilt Shows & Contests


Quilt Connect USA will be hosting a quilt show at the Georgia International Convention Center (at the Atlanta Airport), September 7-9. This is a first year show and it is going to be AMAZING! We have an awesome venue, the best quilting instructors, and I have no doubt with the talent in our area, we will have fabulous quilts on display! Our goal is to grow this show and have it be one of the primiere quilting shows in the US. We are offering a variety of classes for all quilters! From hand piecing and applique, to embroidery work, to wool, to longarm quilting, we offer something for everyone!! We have contracted the best teachers form all across the US, and even the Gourmet Quilter from New Zealand to come and share their knowledge and talent with the quilters in and around Georgia.  We will have a huge vendor mall for fantastic shopping and great demos, and of course we will have rows upon rows of beautiful quilts on display.  
Classes are already beginning to fill and you don't want to miss out on the opportunity to learn from quilting experts such as Marti Michell, Linda Hrcka, Jaimie Davis, Karen Kendo, among others, and the Gourmet Quilter herself, Susan Claire Mayfield. We have three full days of exciting classes taught by world-class instructors so take advantage of this opportunity! Class descriptions and schedules can be found on our web-site at www.quiltconnectusa.com. Each class will only be taught once, we are only allowing 24 people per class and once they are full, they are full. 
We have also opened our call for quilts to hang at our show. If you have an amazing quilt you would like to have on display, please send a high resolution picture of it along with the size deminsions to dana@quiltconnectusa.com.  Quilts will be juried into the show, and you will be notified of our decision by August 1. We will not accept quilts that have won ribbons at any national show or event (local shows or the state fair ribbon winners are acceptable). Prizes will be awarded in several categories, and the show staff will determine the category in which your quilt will judged. 
If you need any further info or have any questions, please do not hesitate to email or call me at 770-647-9152
Thank you,
