The reproduction quilt, M.E.C. Remembered will be exhibited on Author's Row.
|M.E.C. Remembered at AQS Lancaster 2010|
In years past, we have enjoyed Lancaster City and the surrounding area. Keep a lookout along your drive for covered bridges – this one is in Poole Forge.
Be sure to visit Central Market, right across the street from the Marriott Hotel and Convention Center (Check their hours.) A grand feast for the eyes and the appetite (more pics later to entice you).
The Lancaster Quilt and Textile Museum is a MUST SEE, especially this year. Please support this museum and “Save Lancaster’s Quilts!” Proceeds from this special full-collection exhibit will benefit “SAVE LANCASTER’S QUILTS: Preservation for Today & Tomorrow,” a campaign for the care of the museum’s quilt collection and an endowment with the Lancaster County Community Foundation that will assist in providing a home for the artifacts in Lancaster County. (Does that give you a hint that they might not be there for us to see next year?!)
The Lancaster County Convention Center, where the AQS show is held, adjoins the Marriott Hotel. It was all built around the old Watt & Shand building, and retains part of this historic building right inside the convention center.
As you know, there will lots of fabulous quilts to enjoy! And lots of vendors on three floors. Here is a panorama from 2010 of the just the main vendor hall. There are two more floors filled with vendors!
So much to see and do! Look for me too!
