  1. Sally Reyna says:

    Exactly 2 weeks from today I will be strolling the aisles of the best quilt show of the year. Getting more excited everyday and my list is getting longer everyday.

  2. Wanda Phillips says:

    Unfortunately I’m never going to make it to the actual show, so winning will be like I have a small piece of it!

  3. Dalya says:

    This will be the greatest gift. The fabric will be a memory of the show to give to my mother who can’t make it to any more shows.

  4. Sandy Rollins says:

    I would like to win because my friend and I have been coming to Road for 15 consequitive years….I even came in a wheelchair one year. We go to the big party and we always leave with not much more than the free magazines. We just have terrible luck. No matter where we sit, we’ll be the last table called. So it would really be nice to be winners for a change.

  5. Kathleen says:

    Can’t wait to attend this year (and leave snowy Canada behind for a week)!

(Six classes this year!)
