American Quilter’s Society Announces Three New AQS QuiltWeek™ Locations

by American Quilter's Society

In 2014, The American Quilter’s Society, headquartered in Paducah, Kentucky, will celebrate its 30th anniversary. Expanding its QuiltWeek lineup by offering seven internationally attended quilting events will allow AQS to span more of the country. Chief Operating Officer Richard Louise states, “I am excited that we can bring more QuiltWeek events to more quilters. From east to west, more quilters will be able to join the celebration.”

The new AQS QuiltWeek events will be held in the Southwest–Phoenix, Arizona (February 5 – 8, 2014); the Mid-Atlantic–Charlotte, North Carolina (July 30 – August 2, 2014); and returning to the South in Chattanooga, Tennessee (September 10 – 13, 2014).

Executive Show Director Bonnie Browning says, “We selected the new cities because they have excellent facilities that make it possible to host high-caliber quilting events.” Expanding the AQS 2014 schedule to include seven shows also gives sponsors and vendors an added opportunity to reach new audiences.

The American Quilter’s Society invites quilters, fiber art lovers, and potential vendors to mark their calendars now. The full 2014 schedule of AQS QuiltWeek events features:

  • February 5 – 8, 2014: Phoenix, Arizona – New

At AQS, we believe that with inspiration and advice, the creatively minded individuals can take their quilting projects beyond what even they had imagined. That is why inspiration is central to everything we do.
