    the recent one in pa was also $14. the one in nj was $12.

    the $14 one was jammed, so i guess not.

    The annual large AQS show in Columbus, Ohio in June costs $25 to get in. I believe there's a discounted fee if you go more than one day. I was able to go in 2008 and looked forward all year to attending the 2009 show, but when the time came I simply couldn't afford it. I couldn't drive that far alone (about an hour-and-a-half drive) due to health reasons and it would have been $50 for two of us. It's always packed in spite of the cost. I guess I'd better save up so I can go next year. I'd love to attend the entire event and take classes, but that would increase the price tag considerably.

    My daughter and I went to a small quilt show in Holmes County and I think it was $14 each to get in. It was pretty busy, too, but they didn't have nearly as many quilts as they advertised.

    I'm going too! I'm bringing my great Aunt too. I haven't been to this grand of a quilt show in over 10 years, so I'm really excited about it.

    Last weekend I paid $6 to get in the Greater San Antonio Quilt Guild quiltshow. It was fairly small, but I can only look at so many quilts anyway before my head goes into overload. There were some gorgeous quilts there, as I imagine there are at any quilt show.

    I am going and was wondering if anyone wants to meet up and go to the Quilt-O event on Thursday night with me. I've never been to anything like this and would love to sit with some nice people! I am also going on Wednesday night for the show preview for people who paid for classes.
