Quilt Market Credential Requirements
All Market business credentials expired at the end of 2016. You will need to submit updated credentials in order to attend the 2017 fall Market in Houston, unless you previously attended the spring 2017 spring Quilt Market in St. Louis.
Please remember that employees credentials must be submitted for each show. It is preferable to submit credentials with your enrollment. For any questions, email Market's enrollment services at firstname.lastname@example.org
Credentials include two different categories (or badge types) and several options for businesses to provide documentation in order to qualify to attend Market. These options enable legitimate businesses of many types and sizes to qualify to attend Quilt Market.
The approved time period for credentials is three years. This means all business credentials submitted and approved now will be good until December of 2019.
