  1. OH how I wish I was there! I just found out my quilt is one of the winners. Whoopie. I’m surely coming out next year!!

  2. Hi Road Crew – just a note to say what a great time I had this year! I took two classes from Kimberly Einmo – she was fantastic and so completely thorough, I’m going home ready to finish my quilts! I really liked the vendor layout, especially in the pavillion – some of my favorites; Busy Bee, Sewing Party, Orange Quilt Bee. I’m a local gal but I really enjoy seeing what other quilt shops, vendors from other areas – I really enjoyed Quilters Paradise from clovis, Ca. I also purchased a ‘scan and cut’ machine ($300) and it was so nice to have to vendor right there to answer my questions. Love the notions people too – I forgot my seam ripper, so it was available to purchase a new one.
    Thanks for all the hard work you do – the marching band was fun – love this show!!
    Bev
