Halloween at the International Quilt Festival

Thursday, October 31 -- 6:30-8:30 P.M.
A benefit for the International Quilt Association It’s Ghouls’ Night Out for all Festival attendees! Halloween falls on Quiltapalooza Night this year and we’re planning a spectacular costume extravaganza. We expect to see wads of witches, gaggles of goblins, and a zoo-full of zombies. Snatch your dinner box, find a seat, and participate in a frisky game of Fishing for Fabric (you can never have too much fabric, right?).

Be at your most creative when putting together your costume as there will be a contest with prizes for the choicest. Will you be chosen most Ghastly and Gruesome? Perhaps Classically Comedic? Or will your costume be Beautifully Bizarre? The judges will award these and more as you parade your party attire. (Judges are Darlene Christopherson, Nancy Brennan Daniels and Melody Crust)! So beware!

Then get ready to laugh out loud while participating in the Nasty Needle Threading Competition (we’re not talking size 12’s here). As always there will be scads of surprises, dozens of door prizes and plenty of quilters and friends to frolic with. Be there and support the International Quilt Association with their annual fundraiser. Costumes are strongly encouraged but not required. After all, this is your chance to celebrate Halloween as it is meant to be—all while attending the best quilt show in the world!

IQA is a non-profit organization and Quiltapalooza is held, in part, to show the exuberant side of the association. Enjoy rewards and door prizes galore during the evening thanks to IQA’s fantastic sponsors. Some amazing raffle items round out the evening’s excitement.

After all, there is just no such thing as too much fun when you attend the Houston Quilt Festival. A boxed meal and beverage included. Cash bar also available.
