    This was a show that was here (Chicago) for 6 years , then they moved it to Cincinatti. This is the first year its been back , and the date that it had been for the 6 years was changed from April to the new June date. If it does go for addtional years it is most likely to be the same dates or the same weekend in June. It has always been a huge show , with preview night on Thursday night ( a great time to go to the vendor section). Its alot to take in , in one day. I the past I have gone at least two days .

    What is the location of the show. I am traveling to the Midwest from California for the months of June and July and would love to attend.

    I'm truely happy for you. I started a few yrs ago going to the one here in Hampton Va and love it. I go every day that I can go. Last yr I went to the one in Raliegh NC and it was really nice. They supplied the machines for class so I really liked that, no carrying heavy machines. I plan on going to both again this yr. Enjoy.

    You shouldn't have any problem finding a hotel...this show is near the airport and there are TONS of hotels...only 4 within a short walking distance. The hotels most likely will have a drop off available.

    Can't wait to go to this show!!! I always went....saved lots to spend in the vendor area. I really hate parking at this show, so...I have my husband drop me off. Only problem is him seeing what I carrying when I get picked up.
