Leaving at 8AM SHARP



Travel with IQI to the fabulous Madison Quilt Expo—register online now!

Be part of the ultimate quilting adventure in Madison—the Madison Quilt Expo offers the perfect getaway for quilting enthusiasts. Travel to the Expo with IQI in the comfort of a luxury bus*, leaving the driving to an expert while you sit back, relax, and chat with fellow guild members. We have space for 50 IQI members and other quilters, and the $50 fee for IQI members includes entry to the show, bus fare, and a tip for the driver.

Whether you’re a seasoned quilter, a novice, or just curious to learn more about quilting, all quilting buffs will thoroughly enjoy this opportunity to learn and draw inspiration from quilting masters who will share their ideas and expertise. Presented by Wisconsin Public Television (WPT) with Nancy Zieman Productions, Quilt Expo is designed to capture and revitalize the creative quilting spirit.

This year, IQI members and visitors heading to Madison will be parking at the Northbrook Metra parking lot (address: 1401 Shermer Road). Participants should park in the furthest south portion of the lot by 7:45 a.m. and may enter at several places off Shermer Road at Walters Avenue on the west side of the railroad tracks. Every entrance offers access to the south part of the lot. We will return to the parking lot around 6 p.m.

*As opposed to a school bus!
