We are quilt and sewing machine shops from Colorado and Wyoming that participate in an annual event at The Ranch in Loveland, Colorado, where you can visit us all in one wonderful weekend! We also invite you to visit our shops throughout the year.

Our 2018 Event will be Friday, April 20th and Saturday, April 21st, 9a.m. to 5p.m each day.

This year, we will have two displays:

We will have a challenge called “Raining Cats and Dogs.”  Anyone can enter a quilt, tote, or other item featuring dogs and cats into this competition.  There will be three viewer’s choice awards for 1st Place ($150), 2nd Place ($100) and 3rd Place ($50).  Quilts need to be less than 60″x60″ and submitted before April 13th (delivered to a participating shop).  Application available here.  Please disregard the April 2 date on the application.

You’re also invited to participate in a quilt display of modern quilts at the Shophop.  Anyone can enter a modern quilt that measures less than 80″x80″and submitted before April 13th (delivered to a participating shop). Please disregard the April 2 date on the application. There will be three Viewer’s Choice awards given at the end of the display.  Prizes are 1st Place ($400), 2nd Place ($300) and 3rd Place ($200).  Application available here.

Participate in one or both of these displays.

We will have lots of FREE demos and classes at the 2018 show.  Let us share the latest and greatest techniques with you!
