    I just looked up the info about this expo and it looks fabulous! Has anyone been to this expo before? I am new to Georgia and haven't been - it seems similiar to the expo I used to go to in Sacramento, CA - and I always enjoyed that one.

    Ibosma - do you plan to attend this expo? Would you be interested in meeting? If so, send a PM to me and maybe we can get together.

    I am planning to go. Don't know which day yet though. We need something to identify each other(wouldn't that be fun?) Let me know if you have any great ideas.

    I'll be everyday. I always volunteer. My DS, DIL and Olivia live closer than I do so I stay with them. On Sat DIL and Olivia will go with me. For me being around people that share my passion and staying with my son for three days is heaven.
    Hope to see you there.

    What will you be doing as a volunteer? It sounds like fun! I would love to see you at the show! How wonderful your son and family live nearby--that commute all three days would be a killer!

    I volunteer in class rooms, help take tickets at the door. I think on day I'm a where ever they need me. I go the day before and help set up. The only thing I don't do is the take down.
    And as I said the added bonus is staying with my DS.
    I've been doing this for many years. When I worked I would schedule my vacation during this time. It is so much fun. It's a little later this year, usually it's on my birthday. What a great way to spend your birthday, huh? One year I forgot to take my hanging clothes. Fortunately my DIL is close enough to my size that I could wear her clothes. Now I start packing the car the night before.

    Atlanta isn't but about a 6 hour drive from here. DH travels for work over there often so it's a drive we're used to. I probably can talk him into a weekend trip. We've never made time for the aquarium while over there so maybe we can do the quilt expo one day and the aquarium another day. Sounds like a plan to me!

    Yes, do go the aquarium (where's spell check). I had a yearly pass for a couple of years. I loved going. The Coke (thing) is very close to it, if that is an interest. I'm not a fan so I've never been.

    I'll be there each day. I schedule a class each day. I didn't get to go last year...we were making the move to the coast. I usually go for one day. We still have a home up there so I'll be in Lawrenceville.
