9 am – 4 pm on Friday and 9 am – 4 pm on Saturday

Dennis Wicker Civic Center

1801 Nash St.

 Sanford, NC 27330

$6.00 admission – Good news!  We are giving everyone $1 0ff their admission.  Bring $5.

One stop shopping for the best vendors from NC and SC.  This is our 12th year for this show and we get better every year.  We have tried to bring you the best local and specialty shops available.  Save your gas and spend the day shopping with a variety of vendors.  This is not a “shop hop” but a shopping stroll.  Take your time and browse with all our merchants.  You will see lots of fabrics, yarns, books and patterns.  Several quilt shops will be here with quilting supplies.  Vendors with wool and floss for stitchery, will be here also.  Are you shopping for a sewing machine or a long arm quilting machine? There will be more choices than ever before.

We can shop and be safe.  Please respect our vendors and each other by wearing a mask. If you are worried about a crowd, Saturdays are not as crowded as Fridays and afternoons are much less crowded that mornings.  

The Early Bird will get the Worm!  

Again this year! Early Bird Specials!

Get to the show by 9 am for specials and chances to WIN!  The first 100 people to buy an admission ticket each day will get two chances to win all day long.  So, that is two chances for hourly door prizes, two chances for the daily grand prize drawing.

Many of the vendors will be featuring “early bird specials” on selected items from 9 am to 10 am.  Many of your favorite vendors will be here and some new vendors that you will love!

Each day at 3pm we will have a drawing for a grand prize.  It might be a sewing machine or a big basket of goodies.  More details later.

In order to win a door prize, you must have your entry in the box for the drawing.  You must be present to win.  If you really want to win, the first 100 people in the door each morning with get two chances to win that day. All entries collected throughout the day will be entered to win hourly door prizes and the sewing machine drawings at 3 pm each day.  You must be present to win.

If you don’t win a machine, then test drive any of the several machines that will be displayed.  Sewing machines, embroidery machines and long arm quilting machines with be featured so that you can shop and compare without having to drive from shop to shop. 

So get up early, pack your car with your sewing and knitting friends and join us for a fun day.  Mrs. Lacy’s Magnolia Tea Room from Sanford will be doing our early morning food and lunch, so you can have a coffee and something delicious to get you started and then some fabulous chicken salad and famous chocolate cake for lunch to keep you inspired and shopping all afternoon.

Our list of vendors follows on this page, but there will be wools for appliqué and stitchery supplies. Quilting patterns will be available from many sources, some from the designers themselves.  Local quilt shops like Cary Quilting Company and Find X Designs want you to see what they have to offer.  Other shops like The Cotton Quilt feature a variety of fabrics, especially Civil War and Feedsack fabrics. Fiber lovers will enjoy Alpaca products from Empty Pocket Alpaca Farm.  If you are shopping for a sewing machine, there will be several sewing machine dealers on site.  You can sew on everything from a tiny Singer Featherweight to several brands of long arm quilting machines.  

We promise you will leave inspired and well fed. Whether you are looking for a small project or a large one, you will find something at the QFAM.
