    I live about 2 1/2 hours from Chicago. Our quilt guild usually takes a bus up but with it being in June I don't know. Certainly hope so.

    I thought this a very interesting development. I think they want to keep Cincinnatti , it has had popularity. The show left Chicago when the organizer could not negotiate a "deal" with the Chicago convention center. Its been 3 years since the last show. My take is that the Chicago show was always close to the dates of Paducah. It will be interesting to see if this show stays in Cinci, since convention centers typically look for a 3 year commitment, with options for 3 more years.
    Either way I am just thrilled to have this back . In the past classes sold out very early for this show, they may not have been able to get commitments for classes or classroom spaces since this is relatively short notice.

    Oh yes .... I'm in!!! The IQS in April in Rosemont (Chicago) was the first quilt show I ever attended so I have fond memories of it. I went the year before they moved it to Cinci ... I was major bummed when I googled the show the following year and the only links I could find for "IQS quilt show Chicago" brought me results for Cinci!!

    I'll be there!!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    This is one show I want to go to. May have to wait until next year though so I can sign up now for a place to stay which ever state I decide to travel to. Do they hold these the same month of the year in the same locations?

    I plan to attend. My friend and I are hoping to share a limo ride in so we don't have to battle traffic. it would be a one day trip for us. Of course these days it probably won't be a "limo" that picks us up at at least it we wouldn't have to dry and we can have a mini show and tell on the way home. LOL.
    Happy Quilting!
