    Mid Atlantic Quilt show Hampton Rds

    Is anyone here going? I am going to try for Saturday. I figure lots of rest before and know I am going to be down for a few days after but I have Never been to a big quilt show and want to at least go to one. :-)

    I'll be there, not sure what day. It's really not all that big. You can do the entire show in one day, including the vendors. But, if you want to take your time and peruse the quilts/judge them yourself/"pick them apart", it could take 2 days.
    After going to the Houston show, I wasn't very impressed with MidAtlantic, but I guess it's all of what you are used to.

    Damaquilts...I see you are in Va Bch. Where abouts? That's where I am!

    I know I will never get to the Houston show and since I have never been to one other than a small local one in McDonough Ga it will be big to me. lol And a one day is all I can manage.
    Lynnhaven and Indian River Rd are the nearest cross streets to me. How close are you?

    Don't say you will never get to Houston. It's really do-able. Just need a friend to tag along with you to help with the hotel, that's all. I think I paid about $300 r/t out of Norfolk to Houston for my ticket. Hotel was about $800 and that included our meals. Found out that if we ate at the hotel, it was a bit cheaper than out in town, then had my spending money. So, it wasn't really all that bad. I had a friend to help share expenses.

    I'm over by Northampton. Cross streets would be Baker and Northampton. I'm about a mile from Weslyan College.

    I sure will be there. I live in Norfolk so I'll go up a few days at least. I love going. I normally go to at least one class but haven't picked one yet. May not since I'm doing a class at Bella's in Feb. I try not to over do it.

    Do you have the email showing the classes and events? If not PM me and I'll forward it to you.

    tlrnhi, not the finances so much although that would be an entire months income for me but health issues. If I flew I would have to take a day or two to recoup before the show if I were lucky and didn't have a flareup then the trip would be for nought altogether. :-) I have to stick closer to home.
    romanojg : I am not taking any classes maybe next year.
    I wish there was something we could wear so we could recognize others on the board. The Quilt show has those stars that people make. :-)

    I'm sure we could figure out something and then decide on an approximate time then we'd be looking. I know that at least one day I have to take my 6yr old grandson. He loves to go. Loves to go to the LQS as well. I have to check his school scedule. I'm off Thur -Sat then back to work on Sun.

    Well I do know I want to be there when they open on Saturday. But my brother is driving me and sometimes he just doesn't see the importance of being on time well on MY time anyway. lol

    I'm not taking any classes. One of the classes I was looking at was out of my price range. Oh well.
    I think we (Machel) and I are going on Saturday as well. She'll be here the entire weekend. She's bringing my machine back from the "doctors". Seems Tidewater screwed it up even more. They said they "fixed" it, but 2 days after I got it home, it was doing the same thing. Cost me $180!! Talked to Machel, she had the same thing going on with her machine...we have the same machines. She took it to this Mom and Pops place in Lancaster, PA. It's all fixed and it was a total of $39!!!!
    Anyway...I digress....After the show, I'll head back to PA with her to do some house looking. There are 3 shows going on in Lancaster March 14-17th, so I just might stay up there with her until those shows are over. No need to drive back and forth.

    I'm sure we can all figure out a time/place at the show to meet up. Maybe do lunch? Last year they had a buffet, I think it was $10. Wasn't bad. Was nice to sit and eat and chat.
