The American Quilter’s Society is a body of quilters with a heritage that spans more than three decades, encompassing all ages, design styles, and methods. Our members are as diverse as the quilts they create—and at AQS, you’ll find premier-quality quilting products, inspiration, and information.
AQS QuiltWeek® events are now held in eight locations across the country: Albuquerque, New Mexico; Charlotte, North Carolina; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Des Moines, Iowa; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Lancaster, Pennsylvania; Phoenix, Arizona; and our hometown of Paducah, Kentucky. These events make an indelible mark on the fiber art community by offering the largest cash prizes for quilters in the country—currently $20,000 for Best of Show, thanks to our generous sponsors!
True to the publishing roots of its founders, AQS continues to offer the leading how-to content for quilters through its magazine, American Quilter, the weekly e-newsletter, OnPoint, and the publication of books by talented and dedicated quilters. In addition, high standards of excellence for quilting around the world are preserved through the AQS Appraiser Certification Program.
