Important note about rolling totes/luggage

Due to safety and security concerns, Festival attendees are not allowed to bring rolling totes, luggage, carries, or suitcases on the show floor.


  • Do not photograph an exhibitor’s booth without their permission, since items may be proprietary.
  • Photos taken at Festival are not to be used for any commercial purpose or posted on any website which permits images to be used on items such as T-shirts, mugs, note cards, etc. If you post pictures to your account on a “photo-sharing” website, you must also disable any function that would allow ordering the images on any goods.
  • You must include an artist credit and note that the photos were taken at International Quilt Festival. Help us to protect the rights of quiltmakers.
  • Some exhibits prohibit any photography. Please refer to signage by the exhibit or the floor plan in the center of this magazine.
