Duluth, Minnesota Quilt Show

In August 2006, Jo attended "Quilting on the Waterfront" a biennial quilting exposition held in Duluth, Minnesota. The show was produced by Helen Smith Stone with the help of many volunteer quilters from the Upper Midwest - Iowa, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

During the three day event, there were approximately 150 workshops, 50 instructors, 540 quilts on display, 70 quilting vendors, and quilt competitions in several categories. Jo has attended a number of workshops at the annual AQS American Quilters Society Shows in Paducah. While she always enjoys Paducah, she felt she learned more useable skills and techniques at the Quilting on the Waterfront workshops.

Oh, I should mention that another plus of the Quilting on the Waterfront show was the fact that it was held in Jo's favorite city - Duluth, Minnesota - in the very pleasant month of August.

In 2012, a Quilting on the Waterfront event was held Oct. 18 - 20th at the Inn on Lake Superior in Canal Park.

In 2013 the Minnesota Quilters Guild will hold their annual show in Duluth June 13 - 15th at the Duluth Convention Center.

Here's a few pictures from the 2006 show and from touring around Duluth's Canal Park and harbor area.
