American Quilter’s Society (AQS), the largest quilting membership organization in the world, is pleased to announce the return of the AQS QuiltWeek show to Daytona Beach from February 27 – March 2, 2019 at the Ocean Center.
AQS QuiltWeek 2019 includes six events across the country, beginning with a four-day event in Daytona Beach. Each show includes a variety of programming, including special exhibitions, workshops by renowned instructors, contests and a Merchant Mall with the latest machines, fabrics and tools for quilters of every skill level.
In addition to more than 500 quilts on display, $54,000 in prizes will be awarded during the AQS QuiltWeek show in Daytona Beach. AQS Certified Quilt Appraisers will also be on hand to appraise new and vintage quilts for insurance documentation, sale or donation purposes.
At each AQS QuiltWeek event, AQS partners with a local charity. At the Daytona Beach QuiltWeek Show, AQS, the Racing Fingers Quilt Guild and the quilters attending the show will be making “fidget quilts” for Alzheimer’s patients. A fidget quilt is a quilt with extra zippers, buttons and textures designed to keep the hands and fingers busy.
