New Quilts from an Old Favorite: Burgoyne Surrounded special exhibit,
a contest held each year by The National Quilt Museum in Paducah.

AQS President Meredith Schroeder presents a check to Beth Bigler, Volunteer Co-coordinator, of the Red Rose Quilters Guild. Thank you to all of the guild members for helping with the show.

Did you find a new tool or fabric at the show? The AQS Quilt Shows are an excellent place for you to find the latest and greatest tools and products for quiltmaking.

There were more than 200 contest quilts on exhibit and another 200 quilts in special exhibits.

Before the show opened, the AQS staff readied the show souvenirs and books in the AQS booth.
The show pins and tote bags were so popular that we ran out of both.

We are already working on next year's show - March 16 - 19, 2011.  You can make your hotel reservations now by calling 1-800 PA Dutch. The PA Dutch Convention & Visitors Bureau coordinates the housing using the Passkey system. Please remember that the shuttle schedules are set based on the reservations on Passkey - that's how we can count how many buses we need on any specific route.
