American Quilter's Society 35th Anniversary

In 1992 Johnny Carson left the Tonight Show, Ross Perot ran for President, and AQS held the 8th American Quilter’s Society Quilt Show & Contest in Paducah, KY.

This year we invite you to join us as we celebrate 35 years of quilting, 35 years of quilters, and 35 years of AQS inspiring, educating, and nurturing quilters who love quilting. Here’s to the next 35!

In this series, we start in 1985 and work our way to 2019 taking a look at the quilting world through our unique perspective. Enjoy the beautiful quilts and marvel at the amazing heritage quilting is because of you, the quilter.
