The Quilting and Needle Art Extravaganza

Friday, Jan. 27, 2023 from 9am – 5 pm

Saturday, Jan. 28, 2023  from 9 am – 4pm

Statesville Civic Center

300 South Center St. Statesville, NC 28677

Admission $6.00

(But everyone is getting $5 admission.  It’s our way of saying “Thank you”.)

Relaxed shopping with all your favorite shops!  Save Time and Gas! No Traffic Headaches!  Unlike a shop hop, this is a “Shop Stroll”.  Take your time, walking up and down the aisles, have some lunch, maybe a sweet snack, buy some fabric, look at books, plan a new project, maybe even buy a sewing machine. Do all this without leaving the building. Even the smallest purchase will let your local shops know that quilters need and appreciate them.

This year will be our 14th year to do this show.  We continue to be awed by your support for us and our vendors.

Downtown Statesville is small, easy to navigate and welcoming.

Each day we will have a Grand Prize Drawing at 3pm.  

On Friday,  Sew Original from Winston Salem, 3358 Robinhood Rd.,  and Studio Stitch, 3215 Battleground Ave., Greensboro, will be having a drawing for a sewing machine.  (Details later)  The first 100 people in the door each morning will get two chances to win.  Early arrivals get two chances all day long. You must be present in order to win the door prizes and/or the machines.  

On Saturday, at 3 pm, we will draw for a basket full of goodies donated by our vendors and other quilt manufacturers.

This show continues to attract quilters and knitters from all over Piedmont NC.  Join us for a day of shopping in lovely downtown Statesville.  This is small town America at its best.  Shop, eat, plan, and create all in the same place.  After all the cooking, baking, cleaning, packing, wrapping, stacking, mailing, and scurrying of the holidays, treat yourself to a relaxing day.  Reward yourself with a new quilting or knitting project.  Leave the show ready to hibernate in your sewing room room or curl up in your favorite knitting chair with a new project.
