Our Sponsors

Welcome to the 17th annual Northwest Quilting Expo. We are dedicating this years show to one of our founding members, Shellie ODonnell, who lost her fight with ovarian cancer last September. Shellies passion for all things quilting and for the Northwest Quilting Expo was the driving force behind so much of what we have become in the past 17 years.

Our first show was held at the Washington County Fairgrounds with about 20 vendors and 100 quilts. Shellies commitment to making each years show better than the last has gotten us where we are today. We are continuing Shellies commitment to excellence and this years show will be amazing! Plan to spend a day or two seeing the hundreds of juried quilts on display.

Dont miss our special exhibits by McKenna Ryan, Cathy Erickson, Linda Reinert and more. Youll find details in the following pages.

Consider taking a class by our talented featured instructors: Swan Amity Sheridan, Laura Heine, Esterita Austin and Helene Knott. Classes are taking place both before and during the show. Of course, we will have our ever-popular Creative Handwork, Make & Take, and Lecture/Demo classes.

In addition to our usual vendors, we have added some new and unique vendors. Dont miss these special shopping opportunities!

Thank you for your years of support; we cant wait to see you in September!
