    International Quilt Expo

    I just read about the International Quilt Expo in Rosemont Il in June. Has anyone attended this? What did you think?

    I attended this show every year until they moved it to Cinncinatti 3 years ago. This is its first year back at the Rosemont. It is a fabulous show. My family travels here from all over the US just to attend this show. The organizers are the same for the big Houston show in the fall. Just a note .. in past years one day was not enough to relax and enjoy all of it without being rushed. If you can plan on two days ..one day is just exhausting and overwhelming. I was soooo happy when I heard it was coming back.

    The show is in my backyard and I didn't even know about it. I will certainly attend. Thanks.

    The largest quilt show I have ever been to is the Madison, WI show in the fall, (Sept. I think).

    Does anyone know how this Chicago show will compare in size/quality to the Madison show?

    I went to it every year, just like Lori. Can't wait to get to see it again. I was heart broken when it moved to Cinncinati.
    I agree that this is a 2 day show....1 day for the quilts and 1 for the vendors...or half and half. The classes are not here this year...but, I understand they will be back next year.
    Remember to wear your walking shoes....and bring a bottle of water with you....I think they charge $2-$3 for it.

    I already registered when it was posted earlier this year. I have family there that I visit every years. Hope to see some of the members there.
