    I went to the Road to CA for the first time this year. It was great. So many incredible quilts. I am in awe of the talent and creativity of these quilters.

    Went to the "Partytime" Thurs night at the Doubletree and won a $25 vendor gift certificate. I also attended the "Roundabout" Friday night at the Doubletree, and saw demos of techniques from the educators...great fun.

    The vendor mall was great too. I saw many "new to me" vendors and spent some $$$

    I wasn't able to get to the staircase at the arranged time so I didn't see any QB menbers :cry: :cry: :cry: but I hope that those of you that met up will post some pictures.

    I too was not able to make it to the stairs in time to meet other QB members.....so sorry. Went with a group on a bus and our time was limited. As it was, we didn't make it to see all there was to see at the show but I did spend some $$$$. My friend and I bought some 1 yd pieces and are going to split them so as soon as we split what we have and put everything together I will post pics of all my purchases. I really had a great time. Looking forward now to the show in Long Beach in July.

    I've never been to the Long Beach show. How does it compare with Road to CA??? I would incur hotel expenses to go to the Long Beach show so I would want to know that it is worthwhile. Thanks for any advice.

    Best rate for local hosting hotel is $169...ouch!

    I went to Long Beach last July and I think is was just as big and fabulous as the Road to California. Some gals said Road was bigger and some said Long Beach was bigger. I felt they were both about the same. Long Beach convention center is right across the street from the water and harbor. Very beautiful area and July is perfect weather. If you have the ability to go to Long Beach, I would go if I were you. You can never go wrong with a quilt show as far as I am concerned. LOL :D

Some gals said Road was bigger and some said Long Beach was bigger, maybe Road is just a "tad" bigger. Long Beach convention center is right across the street from the water and harbor. Very beautiful area and July is perfect weather. If you have the ability to go to Long Beach, I would go if I were you. You can never go wrong with a quilt show as far as I am concerned. LOL :D

    I do enjoy seeing all the beautiful quilts but I am with you.....the vendor malls are to die for. I am in heaven looking at all the fabric, kits, gadgets, machines, etc. That is where I spend almost all of my time. Maybe we bumped shoulders there at Road. LOL

    We probably did bump shoulders :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I was recently put on blood thinners so I bruise if anyone just looks at me. I remember being pushed, squeezed, and bumped into many times at the vendor mall. Sure enough, I have bruises on my legs, my tummy, hips, and my rear :shock: :shock: :shock:
