Apr '13
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
March 12 – 15, 2014: Lancaster, Pennsylvania – Fifth Year
April 23 – 26, 2014: Paducah, Kentucky – Thirtieth Year
July 30 – August 2, 2014: Charlotte, North Carolina – New
August 20 – 23, 2014: Grand Rapids, Michigan – Third Year
September 10 – 13, 2014: Chattanooga, Tennessee – New
October 1 – 4, 2014: Des Moines, Iowa – Seventh Year
 
 
Known for recognizing the artistry of today’s quiltmakers with the largest cash prizes in quilting, the American Quilter’s Society celebrates the art of quiltmaking by showcasing stunning masterpieces created by today’s textile artists. By bringing together leading merchants, hundreds of new works of fiber art, show-stopping exhibitions, and the leading instructors in quilting, AQS QuiltWeek offers thousands of quilters a unique and exciting experience.
 
The American Quilter’s Society is the largest quilting membership organization in the world. For almost 30 years, AQS has been the leading voice in quilting inspiration and advice, through a broad suite of products—magazines, books, live events, contests, workshops, online networks, patterns, fabric, and catalogs. 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. The leading authors in quilting choose to publish with AQS; the best in quilt artistry select AQS events to display their work; the newest quilters learn from the knowledge and inspiration of AQS members.
