    Put those comfy walking shoes on & bring your pocketbook... there's lots to see on three floors --retros, brights, batiks, hand dyes; even jewelry with quilt designs! and a few longarm demos. I was amazed & surprised by all the original designs and all the books!!! and measuring tools and mats! lots of antique quilts used as backgrounds.....gorgeous!! bring your camera!
    There are also other vendors on Route 30 east @ the Continental Inn--lots to see there, too [on two floors]
    Have fun!

    Here are a few pics from Lancaster AQS show. It didn't seem to have as many quilts as there was at the Host Resort in the past, and the layout seemed awkward. But some of them were pretty amazing, see what you think. Sorry, they are all sideways, but you can still get the idea.
