    Welcome from Oregon! My family origins are from Sweden. One of my cousins had our family's genealogy translated from Swedish our family line goes back to the 16th century to a Samuel Sahlstrom, his wife Katherine goes back to the 9th century! It's definitely interesting. I love quilting and also have never taken a class. I hope you enjoy your trip to the US.

    My grandparents were from Varmland, Sweden. Grandpa was my very best person in the world to love. Tall and thin and he always called me Edit (pronounced Ay-dit). Grandma couldn't speak a word of English, but raised six children, two of which died young.

    The three brothers, Ole, Otto and John Olssen came over and landed at Ellis Island and there were so many Olssens that they changed their name on the spot to another name. Grandpa was a lumberjack in Michigan, chewed snus and took me to the local bar and while he had a beer, I got orange pop. Wonderful memories. He died when I was only 9 years old, but I remember my Swedish grandpa. Edie

    Welcome from Western Pennsylvania! If I was going to anything for the first time, I think it would be the quilt show either at Paducah or Houston. Not sure when they are, but you can find them both online, I"m sure.

    Welcome from Columbus, Ohio. Your question is complicated. There are so many places to do and see. Try to limit yourself to a few shops and museums of your interest. Maybe if you ask the QB members in the locations in the towns you are visiting to meet you and your husband at a restaurant in town you are visiting. The quilter could give you help for local events. Maybe there would be a show at the time of your visit.

    Welcom from Iowa! You should come to the AQS Quilt Show in Des Moines, Iowa Sept. 28 - Oct. 1 (or one of the other shows). The show is great and they have a huge vendor fair.
