KCRQF 2019 – Harper’s Fabric & Quilt Co.

While you’re in town for Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival 2019 – stop in and visit Harper’s Fabric & Quilt Co.  They’re located a short distance from the Overland Park Convention Center in downtown Overland Park, Kansas.

We are grateful to Harper’s for their support of KCRQF as a Silver Sponsor and for furnishing Husqvarna Viking and Pfaff sewing machines for our classroom!

Harper’s Owner Elaine Johnson and KCRQF Instructor Mary Honas

Harper’s was established in 1969 by Dean Harper in Prairie Village, Kansas.  Mr. Harper had five stores in his fashion fabric career.  Elaine Johnson bought the first and last Harper’s Fabrics in 1994 when Mr. Harper retired.

Harper’s is promoting Youth classes all summer!  If you are a quilter who is interested in preserving the art, they invite you to check out their class schedule for your son, daughter or grandchild.  All levels from age 8 up are welcome.  Come join the fun with 100 classes every quarter! Find the class the fits your interest on their website Here.

Harper’s is excited to be participating in KCRQF 2019!  They look forward to seeing their friends — new and from in the past.  Please stop by their booth #707 and say “Hi!” — they are passionate about sewing!

KCRQF 2019 — Open Classes!

One of the questions we’re receiving is “Can I still sign up for a class at Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival?”

Although online registration has closed, the answer is “Yes!”  Class registration at Festival will be handled in the KCRQF Merchandise Booth, #701 inside the Exhibit Hall.

Several classes are Sold Out, but there are still openings for many great classes.

The “Instructors” page on our website will list those classes available, along with supplies needed.  Just click on the picture of the teacher you are interested in!

Trunk Shows will also be available – a good way to be entertained and inspired for an hour or two!
