Visit the Quilting World of 1999

American Quilter's Society 35th Anniversary

In 1999, the Y2K bug upset the computer world, everyone was asking, “Is that your final answer?” and the American Quilter’s Society held their 15th Annual Quilt Show & Contest in Paducah, Kentucky.

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.
