How to Become an AQS Instructor
AQS continually seeks instructors who have traditional and innovative techniques and projects as faculty in the AQS School of Quiltmaking at the four AQS quilting events – Lancaster, Pennsylvania in March; Paducah, Kentucky in April; Grand Rapids, Michigan in August; and Des Moines, Iowa in October.

Each of the shows is held Wednesday through Saturday. Full-time instructors arrive on Tuesday and depart on Sunday.

Full-time instructors teach 3.5 days. For full-time instructors, AQS pays teaching fee, transportation, lodging (double occupancy), and $40 per day of teaching for meals. Full-time instructors teach one 6-hour class, and five 3-hour classes (one of these may be a lecture).

Part-time instructors teach any number of classes less than 3 days. Part-time instructors receive their teaching fee and $40 per day of teaching for meals. Transportation and lodging are the responsibility of the part-time instructor. This instructor may share a room with another instructor in the headquarters hotel and will be billed after the show by AQS.

Please provide the following information:
Complete an AQS Instructor Application Information Form for each of your workshops and lectures. Incomplete forms will delay consideration of your application. Make sure you have a good variety of workshops – hand (could be lecture/demo) and machine workshops, and lectures. Send a good variety of 3-hour classes.

Teaching fees: 3-hour workshop, 6-hour workshop, 1-hour lecture

Accepted instructors will be contacted to verify availability and confirm dates on instructor’s calendar.
