    Depending upon the location, the vendor section of quilt shows can get very crowded and HOT! You might want to include a bottle of water. Have fun!

    Camera for pictures! You never know if you have a future quilt in mind! Good walking shoes... your there all day! How about a red ribbon on your purse so other board members can recognize you and say hi! Have fun!!! :thumbup:

    ink pen so when you get a business card can write on the back of it what you liked at that booth, etc.

    also if the quilt show doesnt have a map of vendors, take small notepad and ask for booth # in case you decide to go back and find them
