Seminar 2013 Registration is Now Open!
The Cobblestone Quilters Guild and The Quilters of South Carolina welcome you to Charleston! The city’s rich multicultural history, distinctive architecture, and friendly people make the city a favorite year-round destination. The narrow streets and alleys invite exploration. Finely crafted wrought-iron gates offer views of public and private gardens featuring both native and exotic plants that thrive in the semi-tropical maritime climate. Our home for the 2013 AQSG Seminar will be the historic Francis Marion Hotel, with easy access to downtown attractions, shopping, and restaurants.
The presentation of the research papers on Saturday and Sunday form the heart of the Seminar! This year’s papers feature southern quilts—think chintz!—but also northern and Manx quilts. And no AQSG Seminar would be complete without the Keynote Address, poster session, book sale, auctions, study centers, tours, and research workshop. Whether this is your first AQSG Seminar or your twenty-first, join us for a delightful and memorable weekend in a truly extraordinary location. The local folks on our support team hope that you’ll love Charleston and the Lowcountry as much as we do!

Twenty-eight Quilts were exhibited at AQSG Seminar held in Lincoln, Nebraska in October 2012. The 2012 Quilt Study theme was Colonial Revival Quilts from the Early 20th Century. All inspiration quilts are required to be recognizable as quilts from the period regardless of the techniques used to make the original quilt. It was up to each Participant to determine their own construction methods for their projects based upon information available about the original quilt.
