Welcome to our 2nd year for the Quilter’s Gathering in Berlin. We were so blown away by your enthusiasm and encouragement that we are doing it all over again. Our goal is to make it bigger and better each year, while maintaining the warmth and welcoming touches that we want you to experience.
The Quilter’s Gathering will be held at the fabulous Berlin Encore Hotel and Suites in Berlin, Ohio again. The staff was wonderful, helpful and took a chance on us. It meant so much that they believed in us and were excited for us and asked us to continue the event at their location.
Here are the details:
The Quilter’s Gathering will be held August 22, 23, and 24, 2019 at the Berlin Encore Hotel and Suites.
Our Event will kick off Thursday, August 22 with a Bolt Blow-Out! For two hours only from 6-8pm in the lobby of the conference center, you can purchase fabric from our vendors for $5.00 a yard and fat quarters for just a buck! This year, we are pre-selling tickets for 2 time slots – 6 to 6:45 and 7 to 8. No overcrowding…and we will have a new layout for you to maneuver. The ticket also gets you a free ice cream for our social. We got the message loud and clear. All you need to decide is what topping to put on your ice cream!!
We are starting classes on Thursday this year and are super excited to have Corey Yoder kick things off for us. Check out the classes scheduled on the Schedule Page and use the Register Here page to get enrolled!
Friday morning, we are pleased to have Moda designer, Sherri McConnell from A Quilting Life present her trunk show and lecture and joining her will be Corey herself. What an exciting event this will be. Later, both Sherri and Corey will be having a book signing for their joint book “Sunday Best”. Get your copy reserved by going to the Shop page. Sherri will also have two classes – projects from “Sunday Best”.
After the trunk show on Friday, the fun continues at the conference center with our Vendor Mall ($6 entry fee or a 2-day pass for $10) where you can purchase Sherri and Corey’s fabric, both current and previous lines, threads and patterns. Plus you’ll have a chance to meet with shop owners, (some of your favorites and hopefully a few new ones, too!) shop their booths, watch demonstrations and be inspired.
On Saturday, we are pleased to announce that The Christ Collection will give a lecture and trunk show with their fabulous quilts from the 30’s. This is an outstanding husband and wife team and you will not want to miss this highly educational event.
Additional classes are also available by local educators – Mary Huey, Karen Phillips Shwallon, Dee Hart and Plaid Sheep Company. See all of their classes on the Schedule page as well.
