    Their corner booth at Paducah was the most fun of all the booths, and their products are new and exciting. They are starting their own quilt show in Pensecola!

    So Paducah doesn't want them back? That sucks. I am dying to get their mat and ruler. But right now I don't even have a sewing machine any more, so that has to wait.

    So, they don't want them back because they are too "fun"! Because their booth attracts too much crowd and causes "flow" problems?

    I would think those would be good things for a show.

    From the schedule looks like only AQS shows are the party poopers. I don't get it, their booth was always in the back corner at Paducah, lots of room and the people in the booth were doing demos constantly. They were energetic and never slowed down showing how their products worked. They were the hardest working reps at the whole show!

    I have the binding tool and clips. I thought why did I buy this after I got home but now it's the only thing I use for holding my binding in place. I have used the same clips for almost two years and they still fit like new. I got the small size.

    They should have adapted the saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". With the news of this going around, makes me wonder what the next show will be like...if attendance would be up or down. Darn shame
