Australian Quilt Market – A Trade Only Event
For twenty-one years the Australian Quilt Market has been the prime event to view and buy the very latest in patchwork, fabrics, professional quilting machines, threads, domestic sewing machines, notions, patterns, yarn, 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. Our next trade event will be held on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th November 2019. As per previous years, on-line registrations will be open from 1st October 2019.
In conjunction with our home at Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, we are continuing with the overwhelming success of the ‘Show & Share’ Sessions in the morning prior to the market opening each day. The sessions are located in the main show hall. It is free to attend the market. However, if you would like to attend the ‘Show & Share’ sessions, there is a small one-off fee of $11.00 (incl. GST/person) for a 2-day pass to visit as many of the sessions as you wish. This pass also gives you access to the special guest presentation by Jennifer Sampou on the Saturday evening of the event. 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.
