Paducah transforms to Quilt City USA® each spring when 30,000 international and domestic quilters attend AQS QuiltWeek™ - Paducah.
Visitors from every continent and every corner of the United States come together to celebrate the most exquisite quilts being created today. AQS has awarded more than $3 million in prize money since the show began in 1984.
Workshops taught by quilting masters at the AQS School of Quiltmaking focus on color, design, embroidery, embellishment, software and technology. Lectures and a full line-up of special events honor innovation and talented artists in the quilt world. A Merchant Mall features 400 vendor booths demonstrating the latest tools and technology available to the modern quilter.
Paducah embraces QuiltWeek™ with quilt-related community and AQS-sanctioned events throughout the city, window displays and church dinners. Celebrate the depth of the fiber art experience with the Rotary Antique Quilt Show, Fantastic Fibers at Yeiser Art Center, African American Underground Railroad Quilts at the Hotel Metropolitan, Eleanor Burns’ Quilt in a Day and so much more.
