Since 1994, this annual event has brought national and internationally known teachers to Arizona and made its Flagstaff venue a destination for quilters locally and nationally. Quilt Camp in the Pines and its sister event, Quilting in the Desert, have served over 5,000 quilters since their inception.

We're On Our Way!

Speaking of “on our way”, Audrey and I are off to Houston on Thursday to International Quilt Market. It's different from the Festival in that there really aren’t the hundreds of vendors with all the fabric, necessaries, books, quilting tools and anything else that would satisfy a quilter’s addiction. Market, on the other hand, is for the serious side of the quilting business. But... we get to see the newest stuff that you will see in the shops soon, the latest fabric, and, of course, all the new teachers that we will find to bring to you at either Quilt Camp in the Pines or Quilting in the Desert. Not a bad way to spend a week! Oh... I almost forgot (NOT), we get to see all the fabulous quilts that will be shown at Quilt Festival before the awards are handed out. It's fun to try to guess who the big winners will be and then change our minds and then change them back! Unfortunately, we always have to come home before the winners are announced. We’d stay longer but, there’s always work to be done.
