Quilting Events, Retreats & Shop Hops

Post Your Quilting Event, Retreat or Shop Hop Event Here

Many people and quilt guilds have sent me notices of local, non-judged shows & Quilting Retreats to post on our Quilt Show & Event Calendar. Because of the volume of shows and major events on our calendar, we’ve have difficulty fitting everything in and in a timely manner. So one action we’ve taken is to restrict notices on our Show & Event calender to actual judged shows and major special events.

However for other events like Quilting Retreats and Shop Hops and for local shows that we haven’t been able to post on our calendar, here is your opportunity to get exposure for your event

You can put a notice of your show, retreat or shop hop here in the comments section (click on “start Discussion” link or enter your information in “Leave a Reply”) below this notice. I suggest you keep your notice brief. Event name, Date, contact e-mail or phone # for reservations, and a website address for more info on your retreat.

And if  you are person who is looking for a retreat, peruse the comments for what might interest you.

Sometimes your post may not appear immediately because we have things set to review all posting to avoid getting spammed to death.

PS To make a live link follow this format. You need to include the following code if you want to include a link in your event information <a href=”http://www.name-of-your-site. com” target=”_blank”>put the name of your event or your website here between the code symbols</a> and the link to your event will work in the post. Be sure to include the quotation marks in the code.

Happy Quilting.
