Billboard Advertising Quilt Show

How great it was to see this colorful billboard last week put up by VISITHATTIE on Highway 42 Bypass on the way to Petal. It is quite eye-catching. We have been having people ask, "Is this the year for your show?" (This happens every year, but we are glad they can begin to see publicity for it.) Four-color full-page ads will appear in Mississippi Magazine, Delta Magazine, Portico Magazine, and Country Roads Magazine. In addition, there will be radio ads, radio jingle spots, rack cards placed in the 12 Mississippi Welcome Centers, shops and restaurants.
The quilt show weekend will compete with USM's homecoming game, but we hope quilt lovers will make time to see this great show.

Love your billboard...so eye catching! Did city design it or perhaps one of your quilter?
I also enjoyed seeing all the activities that go on at your show, many of them free! I plan to pass this on to my guild, Hill and Hollow Quilters of Mountain Home, AR.

Great web site!!

Thanks, Judy! We have VISITHATTIESBURG, our visitors bureau, to thank for the billboard and magazine advertising. We're excited about all the lectures, demos, trunk shows, and 21 vendors at the show. A new feature will be appraisals by AQS-certified quilt appraiser Kathy Kansier from Missouri. Check back to read more after the show!
