American Quilter’s Society Quilt Show

Celebrating 20 Colorful Quilt-Making Years!


You are invited to attend the 20th Anniversary Celebration of the American Quilter’s Society Quilt Show & Contest, April 21-24, 2004. Imagine beautiful quilts, plenty of classes in the AQS School of Quilt Making, great special events, and the Southern hospitality of the Paducah community. It’s a not-to-be missed event! Show hours are Wednesday-Friday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Be sure to include Saturday night in your lodging plans so you can enjoy music in the streets at Downtown After Dinner and see the closing ceremonies and fireworks display. It’s a special celebration—plan to be in Paducah, April 21-24, 2004.

Merchant Malls

You will find a quilt shopper’s paradise in the AQS Merchant Mall areas located in the Paducah Expo Center, 1st and 2nd floors of the Convention Center, the Pool Atrium and Pool Annex in the Executive Inn, and the AQS Vendors on Kentucky at 201 Kentucky Avenue in downtown Paducah. The vendors specialize in quilt-related products for your shopping pleasure.
