    International Quilt Festival- Cincinnati, OH- April 11-13, 2013

    Is anyone heading to Cincy for this show? It's about two hours away for me, but I am thinking about sweet talking my hubby into taking me.

    Has anyone ever been? Any tips for a newbie?

    I am going. Comfy shoes, and lots of time to look! I look and take notes the first day, and go back the next day for those things I want! If you are looking for sewing machines, there are usually great deals on the classroom machines. Always ask about them! Just remember, have fun!

    I have gone. Great fun. Yes wear comfy shoes, there is a lot to see. Also bring a shopping bag to carry all of your purchases. I only had one day to spend there so I was there from open to close. I would like to have had more time to see all of the beautiful quilts but ran out of time. LAst year I met a fellow board member from Michigan there and we ate lunch together. I was planning on controlling my purchases because I am trying to work from my stash. HA HA right! I did really good for the first couple of hours, them I went nuts. I live just outside of Cincinnati so I can get there in about 30 minutes. There are also a lot of nice restaurants etc in Cinci. Enjoy.

    I have gone the last couple of years. I really enjoy it. Lots of good classes, and some are two different days, so if you have a conflict with another class, you can still take it. The quilts are out of this world, and worth the trip just to see them. I have to miss this year because og hralth problems. Going to the Mountain Quilt fest in Pigeon Forge, TN. It is a lot smaller so I won't have as much walking. I was there about 5 years ago, and it is a really nice small show. Some pretty good classes too.

    We will have to set up a meeting closer to the show. I enjoyed meeting a board member last year.

    I'm coming on a bus of 40+ of us from my area on Saturday. I think I'll be overwhelmed to say the least. Question: I've been told to bring a small rolling suitcase/backpack - it this OK?
    Since I gain weight reading cookbooks, why can't I lose weight watching a fitness program?
