    International Quilt Festival - Cincinnati

    Next week, the International Quilt Festival will be here in my hometown of Cincinnati. Since I'm a new(er) quilter, I haven't been to anything like this before, but I'm really looking forward to it! Any words of wisdom about what to expect, or what to look for? Or what to avoid??

    Lots of quilt themed exhibits and a wide variety of vendors. Take your time. Take a camera so you can record the quilts you enjoy if they allow photos.

    Enjoy!!! I always went when it was here in Chicago, and I really miss it. Make sure that you wear comfy shoes. Bring a bag to carry your treasures and bring with a few return address stickers. There are a lot of places that have drawings and this will save you lots of time.

    pack a lunch and/or something to snack on. The food courts are usually expensive and often long lines.

    I prefer not to bring a big purse, but an expandable bag to put my purchases in. I went to this one last year and it was a good show. I'm going again on Friday. The less bulk you have to carry, once it gets crowded (and believe me, it will do that!!), the easier you can get around. There were several choices upstairs for food, but as was said in a previous post, it is expensive and long lines were quite common. Comfortable shoes are a must!

    I was thinking about trying to go...how does it compare to the AQS show in Paducah?

    I read this one to my husband. I think he may have rolled his eyes. LOL He asked what "a lot" meant. Ha! I'm sure our opinion on that is more than his!
