Event Description

Make your plans now to attend the 2012 AQS Quilt Show at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, Iowa, October 3 – 6, 2012. We are excited to be using the newly renovated Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium with all new classrooms and ballrooms. The quilts and vendors will still be located in HyVee Hall.

You’ll be able to see more than 1,000 quilts at the show! There will be beautiful quilts in the AQS Quilt Contest where the quiltmakers will be vying for more than $44,000 in cash awards. It’s really two shows in one as the Des Moines Area Quilters Guild displays the quilts in their 29th annual show using the theme: Welcome to the World of Quilting.

Plus, you’ll see quilts from Egypt, Japan, and across the U.S. in these special quilt exhibits:

  • Stitch Like an Egyptian: Tentmakers of Cairo
  • Japanese Color and Form: New Works by Fifty Japanese Artists
  • 2013 Pilgrim/Roy Invitational Quilt Challenge
  • AQS Authors’ Quilt Exhibit
  • New Quilts from an Old Favorite: Baskets, semifinalists in the annual contest of the National Quilt Museum, Paducah, Kentucky
