Blog Report: Paducah gets ready for the show

2014 AQS Paducah Quilt Show
April 23-26, 2014 (see links below)

In 2007 Paducah Quilt Show of the American Quilter Society had four days of beautiful weather and brought approximately 40,000 people to town for the show. A local TV station reported the AQS show brings 18 million dollars to the Paducah regional economy. Below are some pics from that show. In later shows we had a mix of good and not so good weather, but always a good time [see my blogs for pics from the 2010 AQS Quilt show and 2011 Paducah Quilt Show].

Over (1500) fifteen hundred quilts were entered in 16 categories!

Paducah Rotary Quilt Show

 

The Paducah Rotary sponsors a Quilt Show during the same days of the big AQS show. It is located only a few miles west of the Expo Center that hosts the "Big Show." In 2009 the main exhibits were Antique Quilts (go here to see some of them) from quilt collections of curators Bobbie Aug and Gerald Roy.
