Paducah is recognized as a UNESCO Creative City in the creative field of Crafts & Folk Art for the City's important role in connecting cultures through creativity and advancing the fine craft of quiltmaking worldwide. In fact, USA Today recently noted Paducah as the top place to see amazing quilts! Our cultural venues celebrate the depth of the quilting experience, preserving the long-standing traditional craft and honoring its evolution into a vibrant artform.

Inspired by diverse quilting and fiber art experiences, quilters and fiber artists from around the globe are visiting Paducah year-round. The incredible AQS QuiltWeek - Paducah is now twice a year - Spring in April and Fall in September. Fantastic Fibers at Yeiser Art Center and the Paducah Fall Fiber Festival add to the seemingly endless options... relaxing retreats, cutting-edge workshops, shopping for the latest supplies or simply soaking in Paducah's distinctive creative energy.
