New this year was the Inspiration Studio which replaced the Demo Room on the west side of the hall. This offered four classes, information about the Quilting in the Hills Retreat, and a quilt display.

Open Sewing for Project Warmth

There was an Open Sew area at the show. This gives people a chance to sit and sew for a few minutes or a few hours. Machines were provided by Fabric Junction. Fabric, supplies and helpers were provided by the BHQG. Four quilts were completed during the show which were used for Project Warmth, the charity outreach division of the BHQG.
