Quilt-a-Fair 2020 will be held virtually on Zoom this year. Admission is FREE! Take note of when your favorite vendors will be presenting, or just tune in for the entire event.
Vendors will be presenting in two different formats:
- Virtual Booths – Shop from your couch, or just watch the parade of pretty fabrics, patterns and tools! Vendors will show off new merchandise in their stores and answer questions. They may even have some special website promotions… but you gotta tune in to find out! We’ll be touring three virtual booths per hour, each vendor will have 15-20 minutes to present.
- Virtual Demos – Just like the demos we have every year at Quilt-a-Fair, but everyone has a front row seat! Each vendor will have 30 minutes to teach you a new skill. And this year you can attend them ALL for FREE!
