QuiltWeek Show Arrives In Daytona Beach

By on February 26, 2019 in WNDB News

Daytona Beach, FL – The American Quilters Society is at the Ocean Center today through Saturday with doors opening every day at 9 a.m. Show Director Bonnie Browning said this is the 35th year for AQS. The event includes quilt exhibitions, classes and vendors.

There will be 12 exhibits and fifteen talented instructors will be on hand to show those that want to learn tips and techniques to make quilting easier and more fun. Top off today at the technique-filled All-Star Review that takes place this evening.

Local quilters are invited to experience QuiltWeek in a new way on Friday – by bringing a favorite wallhanging to show. Browning and Director of Education Liz Hammonds will be at the AQS Learning Center to host the event at noon. Bring a note card with your name, city, state, and quilt title and the technique you used printed on the card.

Another special event is a free film viewing of Quilts of Valor II, which reunites Alex Anderson, Mark Lipinski, and host Marianne Fons as they work on one magnificent new Quilt of Valor. They will be sharing tips and heartfelt stories from around the country.

Tickets are available for Workshops, Lectures, and Special Events at the AQS Information Center inside the Exhibit Hall. Check for availability of classes; there are still some openings, and many have kits. Sewing machines and irons are provided for all students in classes that require machines.

Special events are scheduled for tonight, tomorrow and Friday. Daily general admission tickets are $14, $25 for a two-day pass and $35 for a multi-day pass. You can find out more by following the link to AQS QuiltWeek.
