    Keep your cell phone handy, just in case you and your buddy are in 2 separate booths. Wear a special hat if one of you is short. Do not take a cart on wheels. Wear really comffy shoes. Vender are on 1 side and the quilts are on the other. Enjoy! THere is so much to see and take in.

    Michelle, if you stay in the downtown area, taxis to any place in the downtown area are $6 a cab full, including to the convention center. So if two or more share a cab, it can be very inexpensive. Good Luck

    Hi Michelle. If you stil need hotel rooms in Houston I have two that I just tried to cancel with hugh penalty because it was past 30 days. Maybe we can make some arragements if you still need one or two rooms.

    I second this...ESP the shoes! Dress up as you wish from the ankles UP! My other advice? a pad of paper and pencil. Jot down the booth number and what you THINK you might like to come back to. You will NEVER find it again if you don't note what booth! (ask me how I know!) ...oh ..and something for achy muscles and feet!

    We are going too... Got a hotel out near Bush Intercontinental though, and DH rented a car, so he can go do non-quilty things... I would probably expand my geographic area and look into cabs, our rooms were significantly less than those close to the convention center...

    Have fun!
