Here's a look at the first day of the Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara, California, 2009. Let's see if this doesn't get your juices flowing in anticipation of this year's show. It will once again be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, The dates are October 14-17, 2010. Over $20,000 is awarded in cash and prizes. There will be over 800 quilts and wearables and I have it on good authority that TQS is well represented.
