2023 Conference - Vendor Marketplace

As part of our 2023 "Pathways to Possibilities" conference in Toronto, Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) will host a "Vendor Marketplace" for conference attendees from all over the world. This is a unique opportunity to reach a special group of consumers. The Vendor Marketplace will run concurrent with attendee registration for the conference. This event will also be open to the public. 

Due to tax and licensing requirements, ONLY vendors already registered to sell in Canada will be able to apply!

We are seeking suppliers for a vendor display for our attendees, avid fiber artists from around the world who enjoy incorporating beautiful fibers and embellishments in their artwork. As examples, we are seeking hand-dyed fabrics in all colors and fiber content; paints, dyes, stamps and stencils; yarns, threads, woven fabric, roving; wooden or glass beads, and wearables that incorporate these materials. Our members appreciate and collect unique and/or hand-made items as opposed to mass-produced.

Limited spots are available - applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. Final deadline: January 15, 2023

Location:  Hilton Toronto, 145 Richmond Street West, Toronto, Ontario, M5H 2L2, Canada

Date: Thursday, April 27, 2023 10AM - 6PM
