Become a Sponsor

IHQS would not be possible without the support of our generous sponsors! As many as 4,000 quilters, fiber artists, and art enthusiasts attend our show each year. During this weekend of classes, exhibits, and activities, patrons spend a good deal of time exploring what Bloomington has to offer, visiting the our local dining and shopping establishments. Quilters have a strong buy-local ethic that extends far beyond shopping for quilt materials.
