    It is wonderful! My friend and I go for the weekend . There is always a quilting " name" there, teaching classes or lecturing. Last year we had Mary Ann and Mary Fons. This year is Eleanor Burns. She was there several years ago and was a hoot. There are also about 60 plus vendors. Ginny Beyer has been there as well as Kay England. It's a wonderful weekend.

    I've never been (yet) but a group of ladies from my guild goes every year. They've already made reservations for next year! Here's a link:http://www.millcreeksew.com/quilting...auqua-2011.htm

    I've never heard of it. I grew up in WNY and go back for an annual visit, maybe this year my visit will be in Sept.

    Its held the last weekend in September every year. I see where someone posted the website for Millcreek Sewing. Judy Fenton, the owner, coordinates this every year and does a fantastic job. This is the tenth year it has been held. A ton of work for Judy and her daughter Megan. It seems to get bigger and bigger every year. You can get info from the website. She will be posting Eleanor Burn's schedule in the next couple of weeks. If you need any more info than whats on the website, let me know and I can give Judy a call.
