    I have a meeting at Meijer Corp in Grand Rapids and told them I could only schedule it THIS WEEK (so I could hit the quilt show while I'm there).

    Anyone going to the AQS show in Grand Rapids, Michigan this week?

    It starts this Wednesday and goes through Saturday. I'm signed up for an appliqué/painting demonstration on the first day, and get to see Alex Anderson's trunk show on Friday night. There will be over 900 quilts on display and vendors galore! They expect over 12,000 quilters to attend. There's even going to be a flash mob where people can walk the bridge near the exhibit carrying their own work!Some of the LQS are extending their hours for this week too! This will be a first really big show for me and it's right here in my own town!

    I'm so jealous, wear comfy shoes and take your camera. There will be much to see and you'll emppty your wallet! But I'm sure you will have great fun.

    I'm leaving the Davison area in about an hour for Grand Rapids. What a fun day it's going to be at AQS!
