International Quilt Market & Festival: The shows will go on!


The use of Houston's George Brown Convention Center as a shelter for Hurricane Katrina refugees has prompted much discussion in the quilting community as to whether the facility would be available for the International Quilt Market & Festival shows at the end of October and beginning of November. The official word from organizers Quilts, Inc. is a resounding yes.

City officials expect to have hurricane victims placed in longer term (and presumably more comfortable) living arrangements in coming days. Convention center staff members have promised that the building will be ready for the quilt shows on time.

Quilts, Inc. also started the Quilters Comfort America project in response to Hurricane Katrina.
