    Rosemont must be a suburb of Chicago, much like Pasadena TX is to Houston.

    Rosemont is a suburb on the northside of Chicago. I am from Chicago; I have family there and at Great at Great Lakes Navy Air Station, IL. I registered last year when they first posted it. Hopefully I will get to go all three days.

    My guess is that people outside of our area haven't heard of Rosemont. People fly in for this from other countries.

    How is this compared to the one in Schaumburg IL on April 4? I have not been to one, which would be the best to attend for a first timer. What should I be taking note of on my visit. (I already have plans on going on the 4th,)
    Thanks for all advice.

    It is a bigger and more quilt focused show. If I could only attend one .. it would be International Quilt Show at the Donald Stevens convention center.
