    I bet that was appreciated by many! They should be selling chairs and TV's!

    Ha, ha, ha. That's a place I might have sneaked into also if I'd been able to go.

    That is so cool. Now if it was a group of quilters we would have the chairs all pushed together and we would be chatting with each other.

    I went to a quilt shop where they had a mini version of this. Great idea.

    why are they avoiding each other. they could be comparing notes on us quilters.
    my dh would prefer to walk around with me and see all the new gadgets
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    So love that picture and can relate - am still laughing and definitely will share it with DH. Set up a beer stand, a large screen TV and you will get all the time you want at the quilt show. Thanks for sharing that one.

    That is just too cute! Someone on the planning committee was thinking! Much better than this LQS's idea. (can't remember where I found the photo but it struck a chord with my DH )

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    My husband is fairly patient, but this might convince him to actually stay at the quilt event instead of just dropping me off.

    Every show should have one of these; that way, I won't be "rushed" thru.

    They could of had a Bass Pro Sports booth. They would then be looking instead of in a TV daze. Great idea, husbands not bugging "are we done yet"

    This is a great idea. However, I noticed this year there were many more couples shopping together. The guys were not just carrying bags either.

    My husband and brother in law went with me and 2 sisters. Had a great time. Now my husband is wanting to quilt on my new Tin Lizzie that will be set up Thursday! Great time and plan on going next year and making it a sisters' weekend and my brother.

    OMG - that picture almost made me spit out my hot chocolate onto the computer screen!!! I love it. My DH ALWAYS comes with me and our youngest DD to the Paducah Quilt Show and he loves to go and "people watch". I asked him what he thought was the average age of the quilters at the Quilt Show and he said "72 and they are all from Iowa". Yes, most of the quilters had on name tags with their names and states on it - but I did not remember seeing any women from Iowa. So, I said "Iowa?????" and he said "yes because they are all CORN FED". We are farmers and our cars are very "plump" from being CORN FED. SO, he was saying that most quilters were a little on the plump side - LOL

    Can't seem to edit my post above - but it is supposed to say COWS instead of cars. Sorry.
