To Quilt Market 2014 and back – Post 1

The 2014 Spring quilt show was in Pittsburgh last weekend – and since it is only a  5 hour drive from Toronto – it’s a show I love to go to. (The quilt industry is well served with 2 major wholesale/trade shows each year. The Fall show is always held in Houston, Texas and the Spring show rotates between different “northern” cities – Kansas City, Salt Lake City, Portland and Pittsburgh! So you can imagine it’s been a few years since I’ve gone.

The trade show brings together hundreds (and I do mean hundreds!) of vendors who serve every aspect of the quilting/fabric/sewing industry – from pattern makers, to fabric manufacturers, to button/zipper/bag accessory distributors. You’ll find flannel, applique, wool, batiks, bolds, solids, brights, tone on tones, canvas, batting… in fact everything you need to keep your fabric/quilt store going.

Below are a curated selection of the photos I took at Quilt Market – These photos do not represent fabric that Flare Fabrics will be carrying. I’ve selected pictures to give you a sense of the wide variety of what is available. Check our next post for photos of upcoming inventory!

  1. Your photos are wonderful to view. I see one, and say, “That’s for me.” And then, I see another that is so different and say the same thing. Your eyes must have needed a rest after a day of seeing so many beautiful colours and patterns, but I’ll bet your brain kept on working! What lovely displays!

      Hi Donna, Thanks for your feedback. It’s a bit like candy – once you’ve “eaten” one you want them all! It is a non-stop treat that’s for sure!

    That is complete brain saturation! It’s wonderful.
