Went to Lancaster Thursday with two of my very best friends. We shopped Thursday (Sauder's and Burkholder's) then went to the AQS show Friday. I was a little disappointed in the quilts.
There was an exhibit of Karen Kay Buckley's work and another exhibit called "Botswana" and some very nice quilts by quilt artists. It did not seem to have the numbers of quilts that the Heritage show had, the quilts made by just regular, everyday quilters. Even the shopping (vendors) didn't seem up to par.
Satuday we went to the vendor mall across from the Host Resort, again, nothing spectacular. Next time I want a shopping frenzy I will just go to Lancaster in the spring or fall when the quilt show is not going on. Burkholder's is the best, but beware, they won't ask you if you're a quilt guild member
(discount)...you have to ask them.
I don't know, maybe after decades of attending quilt shows I'm just jaded.
