Quiltshow Info

Show Tickets - $10 See Davene for tickets. If you and your family and friends buy from our guild, we get all or a portion of the money!

Festival Night Tickets - Yay, Marianne Fons! Ticket price is $25 See Davene. Get yours early, as we only have 88 alloted to sell.

Expo Volunteers - If you volunteer for Expo positions (see http://www.sewingexpo.com/Volunteer.aspx for more info), and you work a 4 hour shift, you get into the show before or after your shift for free. We encourage you to volunteer for the Expo, as helping them also helps us, as ample volunteers helpensure a well run show.

Guild Volunteers -  The guild needs volunteers to set up and take down the quilts and to work in the TVQG booth. As you know, these positions are absolutely necessary, however, they are "your gift to the guild" positions, as they do not earn free admision to the show.

Mini Quilt Auction - The money raised from your donation of a mini quilt goes to fund TVQG's scholarship program at UNT.


  • Quilt can be no bigger than 24” on any one side 
  • It must have a sleeve for hanging on a dowel. 
  • You need to attach a label that includes the name of our guild. Anything other info is up to you!
  • This year we are asking you to set your own "buy-it-now" price, and enter it on the quilt form.
  • You must fill out a form and turn it in with your quilt. See the 2018 NTQF Miniature Entry Form box on this page for the form.
