“What happens at Quilt Market?”

Several AQS employees traveled to Minneapolis, Minnesota, in mid-May to attend the International Quilt Market on behalf of AQS Publishing.

Spring Market 2015 - our booksAQS was a part of the hundreds of booths, representing small to very, very large companies, in the huge Minneapolis Convention Center.

It’s a great way to meet people and do business with so many representatives of the quilting trade in the same place. Demonstrations were happening all over the place throughout the weekend, including Rock That Block! with Linda Hahn and Contain It! with Linda Chaney and Laura Gerth at our booth.

Take a peek at some of the sights! The “aura of quilting” was all around:

Thank you for sharing this. I’ve always wondered what Market was like. Looks like it’s decisions, decisions. I enjoyed this.
