HISTORY OF THE FESTIVAL

The International Quilt Festival began in 1974. It is the largest annual consumer quilt show in the world, and was attended by more than 61,116 people in 2012 from all over the U.S. and more than 28 countries around the world, from Australia to Zimbabwe. The International Quilt Festival is held in Houston in the Fall immediately after the International Quilt Market. A spring edition began in 2003 in Rosemont, Illinois, and moved to Cincinnati, Ohio in 2011. Our Rosemont show is returning in 2013, but not as ourspring show, instead from June 21-23. A summer edition began in July 2008 in Long Beach, California. International Quilt Festival is produced by Quilts, Inc., which also produces International Quilt Market, the nation's only wholesale trade show for the quilting industry.  We have all the special quilt exhibits that so many people come to see right in the same hall with the booths, so that interested crowds are assured throughout the show. The show gets extensiv e publicity in both national and local print and broadcast media, and in mailings to all quilt guilds in the U.S.

Quilt Festival is not an antique show, nor a craft show. We have developed our reputation because we carefully screen our exhibitors to make sure that their merchandise is suitable for Quilt Festival. Among the types of merchandise that is acceptable are: antique quilts, new quilts, antique tops, new tops, quilt blocks, quilting supplies, patterns, kits, books, quilt and needlework gift items, baskets, rugs, antique linens and laces, reproduction linens and laces, folk art items, quilt prints and/or paper goods, sewing supplies (both old and new), quilt racks and frames, wearable art, pillows, and antique beds. The Fall Festival now includes two
different theme pavilions - Embellishment®, featuring beads, buttons, and custom jewelry, and A Victorian Romance™, featuring Victorian and romantic items.

EXHIBITOR INFORMATION:

There were almost 17,000 quilts lovers from all parts of the world in attendance at the 2012 spring edition of Festival. The 2012 summer show drew more than 15,000 people, and attendance at the 2011 fall Festival was a record-breaking 60,680.
