Schedule of our QTM Main Event at FIT

Location and Admittance

Quilters Take Manhattan’s Main Event is at FIT is in the Chelsea section of NYC (Great Hall entrance 7th Avenue and 28th Street) Saturday, Sept. 25 from 10 am to 5 pm. Please remember to bring a copy of your ticket confirmation email with you. We will collect these at the door and scan them later that day – this makes registration go quickly for everyone. Those without ticket confirmations will need to wait to be checked in by hand (not as much fun as shopping!). You do not need to bring your ticket to add-on events – there will be a master check in list at each one.
