Paducah Spring Quiltweek not affected by second event

by Manda Barger, WPSD Local 6

PADUCAH- Organizers for the American Quilter’s Society say the first Fall QuiltWeek in Paducah did not affect the 2018 Spring QuiltWeek.

Executive Show Director Bonnie Browning says 30,487 people came to attended the multi-day event in April, 2018. She adds that is slightly fewer than the 31,246 in 2017.

Browning says this proved their first Fall QuiltWeek event in 2017 did not hurt the spring event. She adds 70% of those who attended last Fall had never been to Paducah, so the second event brought in new visitors.

Browning says they are now prepaing for 2018 Fall QuiltWeek. They will open registration for AQS members on June 26 and then to the general public on July 10.

The 2018 Fall QuiltWeek® is set for September 12-15.
