    I'm so excited to go!! I haven't ever went to it either but am going the first day. My sister is going along--even though she doesn't sew or quilt. (What a good heart she has!). I am dreaming about buying a long arm and will be researching all the long arm quilt booths. (Maybe I'll make my sister try one and brainwash her into becoming a quilter)!! It is 5 1/2 hours away from here but that at least is still within a reasonable driving distance and it will be a nice getaway for my sister and I. We used to go to a huge Craft Sale every fall but we don't do that anymore because one can only hang so much stuff on your walls in your house--and besides--I have now become a quiltoholic instead of a craftaholic!!!!

    I am going to the quilt show down there.. with my 3 sisters. Can't walk for a long period of time.. hope there are many chairs for me to sit on and rest a few! We have gone there for a few years... I always stayed in the motel room. This time, the sisters insist I go.. so hopefully I can go and not get too tired! Thanks.. Linda in Sioux City.
