Volcano in Iceland Affects Quilt Show Instructor

Mother Nature has affected the AQS Quilt Show. Flights from England have been suspended due to the danger of flying through the volcanic ash that has spread over Europe. Lynne Edwards, who is scheduled to teach at the AQS Quilt Show is not able to fly out of England to get to the show. You can click here to check out what is happening.

We are therefore cancelling these classes that Lynne Edwards is scheduled to teach:
Wednesday, April 21, 8:30 - 11:30 a.m.: #9151 Keep on Folding
Thursday, April 22, 1 - 4 p.m.: #7506 All Cut Up Nine-Patch
Friday, April 23, 5:30 - 8:30 p.m.: #3507 Patchwork Set in Stone
Saturday, April 24, 8:30 - 11:30 a.m.: #7515 Patchwork in Perspective

Lynne sends her regrets to all of her students. She was all packed and ready to fly out today. Her airline says the earliest she could possibly fly would be Friday, and there is no guarantee that they will be able to fly then.

If you are registered for any of these classes, AQS will send you a refund after the show; our show office is closed during quilt show week since all of our staff is working at the Workshop Desk. If you would like to switch to a different class, there will be a sign at the Workshop Desk showing which classes are still available and the Workshop staff will assist you with transferring to another class. Otherwise, you can expect a refund the week after the show.

Kaffe Fassett, who also lives in England, flew to the U.S. on Thursday, so he beat the eruption of the volcano by a day. There are still some tickets available for Kaffe's lecture on Wednesday evening - you can order a reserved seat by calling the Carson Four Rivers Center at 270-450-4444, or you can purchase a general admission (not reserved) ticket at the Workshop Desk during the show. The Workshop Desk will be open Tuesday, 12 - 8 p.m., and will be open from 8 a.m. to show closing time on show days.

The vendors begin moving into the Dome Pavilion today - I can't wait for you all to see this new facility!

Hope to see you at the Awards Presentation at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday at the Carson Four Rivers Center. We are going to have a real treat that evening - a special performance, Variety! Music & More by the Badgett Playhouse from Grand Rivers, KY., followed by the announcement of all of the winners in the quilt contest.

See you there. It's Quilt Show time in Paducah!

Bonnie Browning, Exec. Show Director
