We love to do a show like the one we are preparing in Columbia!  We got the warmest welcome we have ever received from the quilters in SC.  We have the best and nicest vendors to go with the best and nicest customers.    We feel strongly about promoting small business.  Working together is the best way to succeed.  We invite you to come and spend the day with us.  You will find quilting fabrics, books, notions, and patterns.  If you love wool, there will be several wool vendors from which to choose.  Sewing machine and longarm machine vendors will be glad to give you test drive on any of the machines that they have in their booths.  

Parking is free and there will be food available on site.  This year we welcome our Food Truck Vendor, Carolina Cookin’.  A whole truck full of good things to eat.
