Festival celebrates all things fabric

October 25, 2018 by  

The International Quilt Festival is taking place next month in Houston for four days.

The festival will celebrate the variety of quilts available, as well as the various fabric-based arts and crafts.

There are set to be over 1,600 quilts and fabric art pieces on display during the festival. There will also be more than 1,000 shopping booths that will be selling a number of items such as books, patterns, crafts, and fabrics.

The festival will also be holding a number of classes that will begin before the festival on November 6. Many of these classes are already sold out, but there are still plenty available. The subjects of these classes will include instructions in longarm, how to make a quilted wreath, creating penny rug posies, and making a Christmas altered book.

There will also be lectures taking place over the four-day festival given by experts such as Morna McEver Golletz, Jodi Barrows, and Amelia Marusiewicz.

Other events include luncheons, tours of the Texas Quilt Museum and a preview night event that costs $20 per person.

Houston flyer printing companies are often sought to provide marketing materials for festival such as this one.

The International Quilt Festival will take place at the George R. Brown Convention Center from November 8 to 11. Tickets are $15 per day for adults and $9 for seniors and military, or a full festival pass is available for $50.
