Australian Quilt Market
A date for your diary - AQM 2018
Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th November, 2018
Entrance is at Doorway 1 of the Melbourne Exhibition Centre at the front end of the Concourse.
The AQM is a wholesale and TRADE ONLY show and is not open to members of the general public.
**Melbourne's Wholesale Trade Show for the Patchwork and Quilting Industry**
Since 1998, the Australian Quilt Market has been the prime venue to view and buy the very latest in patchwork,fabrics, professional quilting machines, threads, domestic sewing machines, notions, patterns, needlework, beading and accessories. From its humble beginnings, the AQM has become the largest wholesale event in the southern hemisphere! The market offers access to hundreds of internationally renowned manufacturers and converters.
In conjunction with our home at Melbourne Exhibition Centre, we are continuing with the overwhelming success of the 'Show & Share' Theatre Sessions in the
morning prior to the market opening on each day. The sessions are now located in the main show hall.
Details for this event will be updated on our website from 1st October onwards. It is free to attend the market* and, if you would like to attend the 'Show & Share' sessions, there is a one-off fee of $11.00 (incl. GST/person) for a 2-day pass to visit as many of the classes as you wish.
Upon receipt of your registration, we will send you a visitor’s kit which includes name tags. The AQM Show Guide Booklet of the event and a handy AQM tote bag may be collected at the registration desk. Although we have allocated sufficient seating, attendance to the 'Show & Share' Sessions is on a ‘first come, first served’ basis; so the “early bird” gets the seat.
The AQM Café will provide light meals/snacks and hot/cold drinks. So, join the market leaders for hundreds of new ideas and products for your business.
