Organizers say AQS QuiltWeek was a success

Posted: Updated:
PADUCAH, KY -

Organizers are calling this year's AQS QuiltWeek a success.

The Paducah-McCracken County Convention Center Corporation Board met on Tuesday to discuss any problems as they begin to plan for next year's event. Julian Carroll Convention Center Director Jeff Foreman says the biggest issue was parking, something they struggle with every year.

At the meeting, Foreman also announced how much they're making from the Bernie Sanders rally that took place Sunday. He says they sent a bill to Sanders' campaign for $4,500. He says more people showed up than expected, and they had to open walls to make room.
