Home Machine Quilt Show 2014 Giveaway

This year, as I have done in the past, I am headed to Salt Lake for HMQS.  Or the Home Machine Quilt Show.  This year, I am so excited to run into some friends I have made online, and watch the super talented machine quilters in action.

The vendor mall is one of my favorites….as is the quilt show, which never disapoints.  I don’t have a big name fancy quilting machine {in fact, she’s called the screaming banche}, but I love giving my hand at the newer, smoother, and better machines while on the floor.

If you are headed that way, look for me.  Or if you are there, share a tweet or picture on facebook or two– use the hashtag:  #hmqs so we can all share what you experience.

Even though it’s not ‘quilt market’ it is one of my favorite shows.  I always look forward to seeing the new products, machines and of course seeing the quilts and their talented quilters.

I am in awe that there is such talent out there…and so glad that once a year I get to see the art that they make with their machines.

“Quilters’ Symphony” is the 2014 theme, and the theme category will feature the quilts that represent this harmonious combination of patterns, fabric and quilting.


Just a Few of the Features at HMQS 2014 Include:

  • Vendor Mall of more than 100 companies in 200 booths featuring the latest in cutting- edge tools, techniques, machines, fabrics, patterns and more! Lots to see, try, compare and buy!
