FANTASTIC FIBERS: International Competitive Exhibition



Now an American Quilter's Society sanctioned event, FANTASTIC FIBERS is an international competitive exhibition that seeks to showcase a wide range of outstanding works related to the fiber medium. In five years Fantastic Fibers has grown to a truly international competition/exhibition.

Last year’s Fantastic Fibers 2012 Exhibit had nearly 400 entries submitted by 159 fiber artists from 10 different countries. 53 works by 43 fiber artists were chosen for the exhibit.

Fantastic Fibers 2013 is hosted by the Yeiser Art Center, Paducah’s Gateway to the Arts. Located in downtown Paducah, the Yeiser Art Center is a non-profit visual arts organization celebrating more than fifty years of serving the community through exhibitions and education throughout the Tri-State Region.

Paducah is the home of the National Quilt Museum. The American Quilter’s Society Annual Show and Contest will be held in Paducah from April 24th-27th, 2013.

Now's the time to submit your best recent fiber work and join in. Who knows... you might just be this year's $1,000 first place award winner!

A minimum of $1,750 in cash awards will be given by the jurors. Awards will be made in the following amounts:
  • First Place $1,000
  • Second Place $500
  • Third Place $250
