Quilt Sales at Broward Quilt Expo

About

For the first time in our show history, we will be making quilts available for sale at Broward Quilt Expo. We will be presenting a beautiful retail sales booth where quilts will be displayed on custom-built racks. Visitors will be invited to browse a selection of handmade quilts created by the members of the six BQE guilds. Quilts in all styles, from traditional to modern, will be available for purchase.

In addition, entrants in our show’s judged competition will be invited to make their quilts available for sale. This option is open to all entries, regardless of guild membership.

We are very excited about giving the public this opportunity to purchase a unique item which we hope will give warmth and beauty to their families for generations to come.
