Hello Vendors,

The Quilting Expo in Columbia will be here before you know it.   Your emails, website and facebook posts are our best form of advertising.  And it’s free!  So please take a few minutes to share the info about this event.  More customers in attendance means more sales.  We do this show in conjunction with the Quilter’s of SC.  They will feature a beautiful quilt show in the center of the building.  Quilts of Valor will also have a display.

Last minute reminders –

Show location:

Jamil Center

206 Jamil Rd.

Columbia, SC 29210

Show dates – Friday, July 15, 2022 from 9 am – 5(?)pm and Saturday, July 16, 2022 from 9 am – 4 pm.

Move in is Thursday, July 14, 2022 from 9am – until 6 pm.

All tables are 8’ long and 30” wide.  They are not covered. You are provided with 2 tables per booth.  Additional tables are $8.00 each.  You can pay for extra tables at the show.  The floor is concrete.  There will be an 8’ high drape on all 3 sides of  your booth.

Parts of Jamil are cold, if you are under the AC.  Parts of Jamil are hot.  Bring a tank top, a bathing suit, socks and a sweater.

Make a plan for an early bird special from 9 am – 10 am on Friday and Saturday.  Pick an item that you will feature.  Include that information in your email to your customer. This is optional.  Some of you do not have products that are appropriate for this kind of promotion.  It is not intended to be booth wide, but just a special on some merchandise that you want to spotlight. It is intended to entice people to arrive early and it is a great way to get early morning business.  We want customers to arrive early and stay until the sewing machine drawing, therefore, shopping all day long.

Stick in a few things for door prizes and the big gift basket.  Customers will pick up door prizes at your booth, which gives you the chance to make a sale.

Many hotels are a couple of exits up I-26 at Harbison Dr.  There is a mall there, so there are plenty of restaurants and hotels off of Exit 103.  Jamil is located off of Exit 106.

The Hampton Inn in Columbia is 803-749-6999.

The Holiday Inn Express is 803-732-2229.

Bring a sign for your booth.  Pack an extension cord.

Food – We plan to have a food truck.  We can deliver your lunch if you like.

There will be giveaways throughout the show.

Everyone that attends the show will get one chance to win.  However, the first 100 visitors in the door each morning will get 2 chances to win all day long.  Two chances for all the door prizes!  Two chances to win a machine.  You must be present at the 3 pm drawing to win.  You will also be entered twice to win the big gift basket at the end of the show.  Many vendors will feature an early bird special from 9am – 10am each morning.  Check the doors as you enter for posted specials.  Plan to arrive early and stay all day.

If you have any questions, give us a call.  Otherwise, we will see you soon.
