International Quilt Festival, Long Beach will be held at the Long Beach (Cal.) Convention Center July 29-31, 2011 with a preview night on July 28. Oh how I wish I could attend! All of that beautiful fabric, classes galore, books, tools, demos and more! And you CAN attend, because this show is open to consumers!
Don’t get me wrong, I love my local quilt shop, but Festival is THE place to see the thousands of fabrics your local shops don’t carry. Every vendor has something new to see, a tool you have read about but want to see in action, that book you wish you’d bought, and every little thing a quilter wants or needs. If you’re in the Long Beach area, or feel like taking a nice end-of-July trip to sunny California, check out International Quilt Festival, Long Beach.
