Our biennial quilt show, Broward Quilt Expo (BQE), will be held Monday, March 4th through Sunday, March 10th, 2019, again at the historic Holiday Park in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
As the Quilt Entry Chair, I would like to invite members of your guild to participate by entering a quilt (or two!) in our show (judging to be held in February). The award-winning quilts receive not only a beautiful ribbon for your quilt, as well as one for you to wear, but also a cash prize.
We have 13 quilt categories this year:
Appliqué -Single Maker
Appliqué -Two Person
Intermediate Pieced-Single Maker
Intermediate Pieced – Two Person
Large Pieced – Single Maker
Large Pieced – Two Person
Modern Design – Single Maker
Modern Design – Two Person
Please visit our website, browardquiltexpo.com and click “participate” choosing “quilt entry” for more information.
Our 2017 show included over 200 quilts and we’re looking forward to even more quilts in 2019. Our vendor booths are going to be full, and we’ll have demonstrations and activities throughout Saturday and Sunday. We hope that you’ll not only enter a quilt, but will also bring your friends to see the show and to shop at our vendor booths.
We’ll be offering some great value GROUP-VIP packages this year --- our Admissions chair will be in touch very soon with the details.
We’re hosting workshops Monday through Thursday before the show with teachers Jean Wells and Tara Faughnan. These are also open to your members. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or (954) 753-5493.
