For Kids
Each year we have a treasure hunt during the show for kids under 12. Stop by the SDQS show booth to pick up the “treasure” list of items for them to look for as they view the quilts. Enter the quilt # next to the items on the list and then turn it into the show booth for a prize.


Classes and Workshops
New this year we will be offering classes and mini Make It & Take It workshops during the show. Classrooms will be adjacent to the exhibit & vendor hall at the Convention Center. MI&TI workshops will be in the vendor mall at designated times.
