Party Time and Roundabout

Monday, June 27th, 2016

These two after-hours, extremely popular events, usually sell out pretty quick.

Party Time

Carolyn Reese, owner of Road to California, started this fun, evening activity as a way for guests to unwind after a long day of classes, shopping, and quilt admiring. partytime-9 Party Time is a two hour extravaganza including games, food, and over a hundred prizes to give out, donated by vendors at the show. For the past 10 years, the event has also hosted an unlimited chocolate fountain for the attendees. Guests sit at round tables with seating for 10. At Road 2016, when everyone arrived, they received a playing card. The first game was for everyone at each table to combine their cards to make the best poker hand. Everyone at the winning table received a prize.

All quilters, they come from Utah, Colorado and California. At Party Time, they wore pink crowns.  They all agreed, “Road is so fun!!”186

Roundabout

Held on Friday night, Roundabout is a great way to learn from Road’s expert faculty and vendors, especially if you weren’t able to get in to one or all of their classes. [caption id="attachment_4120" align="aligncenter" width="687"]Photo by Brian Roberts Photography Photo by Brian Roberts Photography[/caption] Run by Carolyn Reese’s quilt guild, the Night Owls Quilt Guild, guests rotate every 10 minutes between over 20 stations.  Teachers share information about products and techniques. A few of the centers also give hands-on demonstrations.

It’s a great way to get some shopping done without the crowds on the show floor. If you are looking for a fun way to meet new friends or unwind with your favorite quilt friends, Party Time and Roundabout might just be what you are looking for!!    ]]>
