News and Trends from International Quilt Market




We are excited to announce a completely new conference being offered in conjunction with Quilt Market! Threads of Success is a unique, stand-alone educational experience for those new to—or hoping to break into—the quilting and sewing industry.


Running concurrently with the 2019 edition of Market in Houston, October 26-28, Threads of Success will feature classes, networking events, and lectures geared specifically toward new or potential industry participants.


It will also include a mentorship program involving a key group of well-known names in the business, and attendees will enjoy exclusive access to the Quilt Market trade show floor among exhibitors and attendees on the last day of the show. At Threads of Success, attendees will learn how to turn their creative passion into a successful career!


Thirty-six individual classes will provide content for the four Focus Tracks of Fabric Designers, Pattern Designers, Writers, and Online Retailers, with additional general interest offerings in copyright law and accounting/finance concepts. Finally, three breakfasts and two luncheons will feature speakers who are leaders in the industry.


Threads of Success attendees will get answers to questions, network with others facing similar challenges, learn to avoid expensive mistakes, market themselves and their talents, and manage their money and business to their greatest advantage. In addition, they will gain knowledge on how to move from hobby to business, get their work published, increase their online presence, expand creative and business networks, gain unprecedented access to the true hub of the quilting industry, and more!


Details of the premiere Threads of Success conference will be announced in the near future. If you would like to receive information on this exciting new venture as it becomes available, be sure to subscribe to our Threads of Success email list at the link below.
