Lost and Found Items from AQS Quilt Expo & Contest - Des Moines

Contact Us for Information

by Sylvia J. Thomas

Paducah, Ky., October 15, 2008: The first AQS Quilt Expo & Contest in Des Moines, Iowa is now history. AQS staff had a great time visiting this beautiful city and were pleasantly entertained by the “Des Moinians” (is that a word?). Anyway, we did have good time.

And of course the show was terrific, too! We had more than 800 quilts exhibited and over 350 vendor booths for shopping. The view of the vendors and quilts from the skywalk of the Iowa Events Center was breathtaking. The contest quilts were fabulous. Check out all the winners on our Web site. But remember, they are better “in person” so if you didn’t make it to this year’s show, try to attend next year for your own personal treat.

Attendees get so wrapped up in viewing the quilts and shopping at the vendor booths they inevitably misplace personal belongings. That is why at each show we provide a “Lost and Found” area at the AQS Workshop Desk. The Des Moines show was no exception as we came home with found items.

If you misplaced a camera, sunglasses, fabric, or whatever, contact us to see if a Good Samaritan turned it in to the workshop desk. Send an e-mail to or call (270) 898-7903 and ask for Cindy or Marcelle.
