One of the best annual festivals in Kentucky is the AQS Quilt Show in Paducah, Kentucky every spring. Thus, I am proud to announce that the American Quilter’s Society’s 26th Annual AQS Quilt Show & Contest will be held April 21-24, 2010.
The quilt show will be held at the Paducah Expo Center, the Julian Carroll Convention Center, and the new AQS Pavilion which will be located in the parking lot of the convention facilities.
Quilt show admission will give access to viewing quilts and shopping the merchant malls in all three locations and the AQS Vendors on Kentucky in the Finkel Building. Special events will be held downtown at the Carson Center.
The 2010 AQS Quilt Contest will award $125,000 in cash awards to quilters.
Contest rules are available on the AQS Web site. Say hello to all of my dear friends in Paducah, Kentucky. A great place to visit with friendly residents, great restaurants, and fine places to stay.
My personal favorite place to stay is the Paducah Harbor Plaza Bed & Breakfast. Located just one block from the Ohio River at 201 Broadway Street, Paducah, Kentucky. Within walking distance is the National Quilt Museum, featuring exhibits of modern and antique quilts. Book early because it sells out for the AQS Quilt Show!
Please say hello to Barbara McKinley for me if you stay there.
