    Questions about Dallas Quilt Show this week

    I'm hoping someone can help me with a couple of questions about the Dallas Quilt Show held this week in Texas.
    Are rolling tote bags allowed at the quilt show? Do they provide a package check area at the show? This is used to unload your purchases to save your arm and back. And so you can buy more. LOL
    Thanks for your help in advance

    I read somewhere that there is a package check - $1.00 each, no "in and out" priveleges.

    I can't imagine that rolling totes aren't allowed, although I don't find a specification about it anywhere on their site.

    Take it with you and check it if you can't have it on the show floor.
    When I was at Mid-Atlantic in Hampton, VA a couple weeks ago, I over heard someone say they were told no rolling bags were allowed, but that they had then entered the show thru another door and inside found many quilters had those bags with them.

    That's what I was thinking, too, Jan - last year at Dallas, there were plenty of rolling carts, Tuttos and backpacks.

    Thanks for your replies. I received a call back from the Dallas Market Hall last night. The man said that rolling totebags were allowed. I am taking mine along with a shoulder tote. If they give me trouble, I will check the rolling tote and add goodies to it all day. They do not allow them in Houston, except with a doctors note, so I check mine. When my tote bag is too heavy, I go to pkg check and empty into the rolling tote. It is worth $1 to save my back. At the end of the day, I roll it out and back to the hotel or garage. My rolling tote folds flat and velcros, so getting it in is not a problem.
