Have you made out your Christmas list? I know it always helps to drop a few hints here and there—or in some cases to make out a list. Here are some things you might want to add to your Christmas list or maybe get as gifts for your quilting friends:
*An AQS membership—this is a gift that gives throughout the year! Six issues of American Quilter magazine; discounts on books, show admissions, quilt entry fees, discounts with partner companies like JoAnn’s, Enterprise, and more. You can join online, or call 1-800-626-5420 to get a Gift Membership.
*A class or two at a 2014 AQS QuiltWeek® event. There are now seven events across the country and two have registration open in time for Christmas gift giving. Learn from the best quilting instructors like Dawn Cavanaugh, Freddy Moran, Ami Simms, Jinny Beyer, Judy Madsen, Edyta Sitar and many others. Experience four days of viewing beautiful quilts, shopping the Merchant Mall, taking workshops and lectures, and meeting quilters from across the country and around the world.

*One of the latest AQS books – CLICK HERE to check out the newest titles. And did you know that many AQS books are also available as eBooks? AQS members save 30% with an order of six books or more. This should help you check gifts off your list.
*A subscription to our newest magazine The Quilt Life. Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson know all about living a quilt life and share tons of information, tips, techniques, and many other topics to inspire you to get the most out of your quilt life.

*And don’t forget your 2014 calendars—AQS 2014 Quilt Art Engagement Calendar or the 2014 AQS Wall Calendar. My family and friends love receiving the Engagement calendar every year! It’s an easy and thoughtful gift anyone can use.
Along with the shopping and baking, we hope you enjoy time with your family and friends over the Christmas holidays.
Merry Christmas from AQS!
