Pineapple’s Favorite Things About QuiltCon 2019

5 Pineapple QuiltCon Favorites

QuiltCon was a blast this year! People by the thousands come from all over to attend this modern day quilters gala for four days of amazing craftsmanship, workshops & lectures that were led by leading quilters and designers in the industry. Your skill level does not matter ~ QuiltCon had something for everyone who has a passion for sewing.

  1. The Modern Quilt Guild ~ Without MQG QuiltCon would not be possible. They have over 14,000 members, over 200 guilds from 39 countries from around the world. There mission is simple ~ Support & encourage the growth and development of modern quilting through art, education, and community. QuiltCon is proof of the guilds success. We would also like to mention how accommodating they are to vendors ~ It was great to be asked if we needed change!
  2. We have a WINNER! Pineapple Fabrics sponsored the category for Improvisation and we couldn’t be more happy for the winners. We all know sometimes improvising can be hard but for these modern quilters it looks like second nature.

    3. Hot new fabric collections Nuno & Boro from Moda ~ These woven lines are great for garment projects, from coats to shift dresses, tunic tops and pants, everything you love to wear! Now you can find them at Pineapple! What would you make?

    5. Customers, Quilters & Vendors! We love seeing familiar faces and meeting new one’s. So many great & friendly people in the quilting industry, we are happy to be a part of it!

    From our Pineapple family to yours ~ make, create & be happy.
