Des Moines Registration Guide

Make your plans now to attend the 2nd AQS Quilt Expo in Des Moines, Iowa. The listing of hotels is on the AQS Web site. Here is a link that will take you right there:

You should call the hotel directly to make your reservation and be sure to tell them you will be attending the AQS Quilt Expo.
The AQS Quilt Expo is held in Hy-Vee Hall at the Iowa Events Center. Classrooms are on the first floor, and the exhibit hall is on the second floor. A food court is on level 3, and other food venues are located in the hallways throughout the building.

The Des Moines Botanical & Environmental Center is one of our Sanctioned Events. They will be having floral displays in quilt designs, and an exhibit of quilts sponsored by American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. Admission is free with your show name badge.

The Registration Guide for the AQS Quilt Expo in Des Moines is being printed.
We are busy working on getting all of that information online so we can begin online registration as soon as possible. We will post here when the online registration is ready.
If you want a copy of the printed Des Moines Registration Guide, you can send an e-mail to Laura Davis, or fax your request to 270-898-1173. The cost of the printed guide is $2.00.
We have some fun events in Des Moines, including a fashion show of Celebrity Bags by Christopher Nejman - wait until you see the techniques he uses; An Evening with Ami Simms; The Denim Divas fashion show where you can show off your own embellished and decorated denims; a fun time with Eleanor Burns; and Brunch with Karen Kay Buckley. That's a sneak peak of what's happening in Des Moines.
