Chicago to host International Quilt Festival in June 2013

Nov '12
For eight years, the spring edition of International Quilt Festival/Chicago was a must-stop destination for quilt fans—especially those from the midwest—until its final edition in 2010. That show drew more than 20,000 attendees. 

Festival Founder and Director Emeritus Karey Bresenhan announced that the show will return to the city from June 21-23, 2013, with Preview Night on June 20. Quilt Festival will again be held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont (just minutes outside of Chicago).
 
“I am thrilled with this development and excited to bring the show back to Chicago,” Bresenhan says. “We had a lot of positive experiences there, and I expect that it will only get better in the coming years.” 
 
However, she also noted that this show will not replace the current spring edition of Festival that is held in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is a new addition to the schedule. Also, the Chicago Festival will offer a number of great mini-classes and lots of educational opportunities— such as Create on the Spot!—that attendees can sign up for right on the show floor. It will not have individual classes and lectures in separate rooms as in previous years.
 
Additionally, the city of Rosemont has recently opened MB Financial Park, an exciting new dining, shopping, and entertainment district located just one block from the Stephens Center. 
 
Quilts, Inc. produces three consumer shows and two trade shows each year that set the standard for both the art and the business of quilting.
