The International Quilt Festival began in 1974. It is the largest annual consumer quilt show in the world, and is attended by people 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. It is currently being held in Cincinnati, OH since 2011. A summer edition debuted in Long Beach, California in 2008.  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.  This coming 2014 Portland show is expected to draw more than 15,000 quilt lovers from all over the United States and from foreign countries as far away as New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, and Switzerland. 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 extensive publicity in both national and local print and broadcast media and in mailings to all quilt guilds in the U.S.

Quilt! Knit! Stitch! will feature exhibitor booths, quilts, and fabric art on display, and many educational opportunities on the show floor. But what will set it apart from the International Quilt Festivals currently held in Cincinnati, Chicago, Long Beach, and Houston will be a greater emphasis across the board on needlearts like knitting, embroidery, crocheting, cross-stitch, tatting, and sewing.

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 beads.
