    Been to both. I really like Hershey better. Lancaster seems so spread out and I see no rhyme or reason to it. Hershey is laid out where all of the quilts are in one place and the vendors are somewhere else. I like it much better that way. I will be at Hershey again this year.

    I have been three times. Not the best show at all and the prices at the Hershey Lodge have skyrocketed. However the location allows you to go to the best quilt and fabric shops. I have also gone to Lancaster twice. Again, not a great show- spread out, and the vendors were not so great. Going allows you to get in the car and go to Zooks, Sauders, Burkholders- and that is worth the trip.

    It all depends on what you go to a quilt show for. Lancaster and Oaks, PA are larger in general, but sometimes they are just too big. I'm prejudiced, because I vend at Quilt Odyssey, but I know the organizers opt for quality over quantity and try to have a nice balance in the merchants mall. We had to wait for quite a few years to be accepted as categories and spaces are kept to a certain maximum. The quilts are always stunning and I think are laid out better than some of the larger shows. But of course that is just my humble personal opinion....And the available food is way better.
