The Carson Valley Quilt Guild is looking forward to a spectacular show with you included!
Carson Valley Quilt Guild would like to invite you to be a vendor at our 2018 National Quilt Show. Our show will be held Saturday and Sunday, June 2-3, 2018 from 10am until 4pm each day at the Douglas County Community and Senior Center, 1329 Waterloo Lane, Gardnerville, NV. Gardnerville is located in northern Nevada in the Carson Valley, just south of Carson City. Reno and Lake Tahoe are within a short drive and offer many recreational and gaming opportunities.
This will be the second year our show will be held in the new Douglas County Community and Senior Center. Vendors and attendees at our 2016 show had only the highest praise for the spacious area well-lit by huge skylights overhead as well as supplemental lighting. We will again have this beautiful space for the quilt exhibits, antique quilt bed-turning and our vendors. Wi-Fi is integrated into the building and will be available for free. There is a separate room for lectures by our Featured Artist Velda Newman; as well as a dining room with attached caterer’s kitchen.
Vendor booths will be 10’ x 10’ ($225) and the corner booths 10’ x 20’ ($375-SOLD OUT) this year and our guild will provide pipe and black draping for all vendors’ booths, of course at no charge to vendors!
We are advertising our show on National quilt magazine internet sites, northern NV newspapers, large quilt shows in the surrounding Western states, and sending announcements to quilt shops and quilt guilds in Nevada, Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington, Utah and Idaho, as well as on our website and on Facebook.
$20,000 in prize money will be awarded for judged quilts!
We hope you will participate in spreading the word as well as being a vendor in our show. There is a large amount of prize money and among your customers, you or your staff there might be winners. We welcome all entries and certainly all attendees to the show!
Vendors participating in our quilt show will find many ways to enjoy a little rest and relaxation before or after the show. Please visit http://www.visitcarsonvalley.org/ for information on lodging, camping, restaurants and places of interest while you enjoy your stay in Gardnerville/Minden. Holiday Inn Express and Carson Valley Inn and RV Park will be offering special rates for show participants and both are within 10 minutes of the Douglas County Community and Senior Center.

Best quilt show I’ve attended in regard to: organization, helpful/friendliness, lighting. Loved the potluck!
Potluck was greatly appreciated especially after the long drive and then setting up the booth. First time in this show, enjoyed it and the beautiful quilts.
It was a great show- thanks!
