Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival

Several quilt guilds in the KC area are planning for a collaborative quilt festival in June, 2015. Kaw Valley is one of the sponsoring guilds.

Dates and location have been chosen:

June 19-21 2015
Overland Park Convention Center in Overland Park, Kansas

The group has a website on which they describe the event, the sponsors and the guilds involved:

"The Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival will allow you to see showcased quilts from area guilds, shop with a variety of vendors and learn from some of the area’s top quilters. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity – make your plans now to attend the 2015 Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival."

The planners are thinking of something on the scale of the Road to California exhibit or the AQS show in Des Moines with many national and local vendors, workshops and demonstrations and a regional exhibit to show our quilts to a wider audience.

Isn't that last years opportunity quilt

See our guild page at their website:

The organization's officers include Nancy Wakefield, president; Lynn Droege and Janette Sheldon, vice presidents and co-chairs; Cheryl Williams, treasurer; and Sarah Rathgen, secretary.

It's still 18 months away so the website is in its first stages. But check it often. Notice the KCRQF logo over on the right. You can click on that for the next year and a half and see what's new in the planning.

It's not too early to think about renting a vendor's booth, however:

You get a discount if you rent by January 1, 2014.
