Australian Quilt Market – A Trade Only Event
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. This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the event. We have some exciting things planned for this year’s event. You don’t want to miss this one!
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 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 classes as you wish. This pass also gives you access to the special guest presentation on the Saturday evening during 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.
Upon receipt of your registration, we will send you by mail a visitor’s kit which includes your name tag/s. The AQM Show Guide Booklet and a handy AQM tote bag may be collected at the registration desk on show days.
Details for this event will be updated on our website right up until the event. Be sure to follow AQM on Instagram and Facebook to keep up with all the news. We look forward to having you visit the Australian Quilt Market on our 20th Anniversary! So, join the market leaders for hundreds of new ideas and products for your business.
