Cancellation Policy

Tickets to Northwest Quilting Expo are sold on the same basis as those for cultural performances, sporting events and other one-time events. Mark your calendar carefully since all admission and class tickets are non-refundable. Please send someone in your place if you are unable to attend. 


There is plenty of parking at The Expo Center, with a fee of $8 per space to park. This is charged at all events by Portland Expo Center and is collected at parking entrances. Three or more people per vehicle get a carpool rate of $7, so bring a couple of friends and save. To save the parking fee check out the Max Transit Yellow Line.


The success of any large event relies on the good will of volunteers. Our greatest need for volunteers will be during show hours. Volunteers are needed all days from 8:30–5 pm. For each 4–6 hours worked, volunteers receive one free admission and one lecture. Call Judy Hill at 503.648.2349 for more information about volunteering. (Ages 18+.)
