QOVF is headed to Paducah, KY, to celebrate and host its 20th Anniversary Conference on September 13-15, 2023!
The 3-day conference will kick off with a private reception at the National Quilt Museum with a viewing of the Quilts of Valor® featured in QOVF’s All-Star Quilts of Valor book on Wednesday, September 13th. The quilts will be part of a traveling exhibit in early 2023 with the American Quilt Society Shows in Daytona Beach, FL; Branson, MO; and Paducah, KY. The quilts will then be part of a public exhibit at the National Quilt Museum until Veterans Day 2023 when the quilts will be awarded to area veterans and active-duty service members.
On Thursday, QOVF will open the 20th Anniversary conference with a keynote address and luncheon. Both days will feature speakers, networking opportunities, classes, breakout sessions, and more. The conference will be the first conference since 2019 that QOVF has hosted. Hosting this conference in conjunction with QOVF’s 20th Anniversary is a special milestone for our organization.
