Lancaster Winners and Live Webcasts of Lectures and Special Events

 Good morning... the AQS Quilt Show in Lancaster is in full swing now. Quilters from across the U.S. and around the world are viewing the beautiful quilts on display, shopping the merchant mall (their bags look very heavy already) and classes are underway for the day.

If you aren't able to attend the show, you can still view some of the lectures and special events through our live webcasting. Click here to register for the live webcasts... you will see the entire list of events being offered via the webcasts. Remember, once you have subscribed, you can view the lectures and events any number of times "on demand" for up to 90 days following the event.

Congratulations to all of the winners in the AQS Quilt Contest - the competition was very stiff, so you all should be very pleased to be chosen as the top quilts in the contest.

The show runs through Saturday at 5:00 p.m. Come see the beautiful quilts!
