Quilter's Inspiration Weekend 2017 kicks off on Thursday April 6th with a charity dinner/lecture/Q&A with Carrie Nelson. All profits raised from this session will be donated to our local Women's Crisis Center.  

Friday's events will start at the Maysville Conference Center for the opening of the quilt show and the vendor mall, and classes.

Friday night will see the return of the Bolt Blowout Bonanza. From 6pm-8pm pm only, purchase high quality whole yards of clearance quilting fabric for $5 per yard - and pre cut fat quarters for $1 each! 

There is a $3 per person admission charge to the event. (Conference Center - Montgomery Room.)

Saturday includes the quilt show, vendor mall, and 2 more classes with Carrie. 

The weekend comes to a close at 5pm on Saturday with the presentation of the People's Choice Awards, and quilt pick ups. You will still have enough time left to grab a great dinner and then spend Sunday sewing up some of your great finds from our vendor mall.
