Just a quick note for anyone interested - the class schedules are now available online for the AQS Show in Des Moines:

http://www.americanquilter.com/shows.../registration/

The show dates are October 28-31. Hotels in the area filled up pretty quick last year. I'll be there Wednesday (classes all day) thru Saturday - feel free to PM me if you want to meet up.

The show last year was fantastic, and it looks like it will be again this year. I'm saving my pennies, because there will be loads of shopping! Eleanor Burns will be there again :D and this year Ami Simms (the Worst Quilt In the World contest) will be there. There were 800 quilts on display last year; I imagine there will be as many this year (plus you get to see the quilts in all the vendor displays!)

I have 4 months to save my pennies :lol: :lol:
