    Houston Bound!

    I am going to the IQF in Houston for the first time next week! Who else here is going? Is there usually a meet up or anything like that? I don't want to miss anything or anyone! We arrive midday on Thursday and leave in the afternoon on Sunday....

    I'm so envious! I wish I could go. And to Paducah and the Sisters show also.

    I will keep an eye on this answer, planning to go next year for the first time. Hubby wants to take us and my best quilting buddy in the camper....and I want to volunteer in the AAQI booth.

    I leave on 10/31 for the quilt festival. Skipped a few years, but looking forward to this year. A friend and I took the easy way out and are riding the bus from Cabbage Rose in Ft Worth.

    I went last year. Wow!!! Bring lots of $$$ and wear comfy walking shoes! Great Show but once is enough for me. Too crowded but fun. I bought a Janome 1100D serger at this show. If shopping for a machine, know your prices at the local level before getting caught up in the excitement of shopping. I think i got a fair deal there....but i should have been better prepared. Have fun!

    My SIL lives in Houston so we're going to visit her for 6 days the week of the 29th. I'll only get one day at the show but I can't wait. I've never been there and timed the visit so I could go tto the show, even if just one day.

    I will be at the Houston show Thursday and Friday along with my two friends...one from Louisiana and the other from San Antonio. We should be at the show before 10. PM me a way to connect with you at the show and we can have a cup of coffee or lunch.

    I go every year ---- bring a large shopping bag, comfy shoes, buy the program as soon as you enter and then mark what you want to go back to see. Some of the vendors on Sun will reduce the price so as not to pack it up --- I usually wait until then to buy bigger items or demos, with luck I could get it at a large discount. Have fun! Oh yes, bring a drooling cloth for when you look at the quilts -- unbelievable!
    May your bobbins always be full and may your stash be never ending.
