Eleanor Burns

Meet quilting celebrity Eleanor Burns!

You are invited to Relax, Recharge, and Rehydrate in the AQS Lounge, sponsored by AccuQuilt. It’s located in the hallway on the 2nd floor of the Convention Center, so you can take a break whenever you like. In the lounge, you can learn more about AccuQuilt’s innovative GO!® Fabric Cutters and GO! Qube® Mix & Match Quilt Block System, take a short survey for a chance to win a $100 AccuQuilt gift certificate, and even sew a quilt block for yourself. Fabric and materials will be provided… Just add you! Complimentary water, cell phone recharging stations, and restful seating will all be available.

In the lounge, you’ll also have the chance to meet quilting celebrity Eleanor Burns, who will be stopping in daily to sign her AccuQuilt GO! Qube books and chat with quilters from around the world. Don’t have a book for Eleanor to sign? Swing into Booth #1101 to grab one and bring it to the AQS Lounge at any of these scheduled times:

  • Wednesday: 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
  • Thursday: 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • Friday: 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • Saturday: 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Million Pillowcase Challenge: Drop off your pillowcases for the Million Pillowcase Challenge at the AQS Lounge. The Challenge is sponsored by American Patchwork & Quilting. The pillowcases will be donated to local charities.

Your Invitation to the AQS Pop-up Quilt Party

You’re invited to experience AQS QuiltWeek as a special quilt exhibitor!

AQS Pop-Up Quilt Exhibit on Friday at Noon

Join Show Director Bonnie Browning and Director of Education Liz Hammonds for the AQS QuiltWeek Pop-Up Quilt Exhibit.

AQS QuiltWeek is about bringing quilters together to share ideas and inspiration, and we think a great way to do that is to feature YOUR quilts at AQS QuiltWeek. Here’s how you can join us and become part of the show:

  • Meet Bonnie and Liz at the AQS Learning Center at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, September 4, 2020.
  • Bring one of your favorite wallhangings to share (it should be small enough that one person can carry it).
  • Bring a note card with your name, city, state, and quilt title and the technique you used printed on the card.

Come have some fun with us and show off one of your quilts! We will start promptly at 12:00 p.m., so you can get to your 1:00 p.m. classes. It is fun to participate, but you can come and just watch too. We can’t wait to see what you have to share!
