    The Knoxville Quilt Show is July 23-26. I will be attending on Thursday, Friday and possibly Saturday morning. (That means I am leaving for the show just 53 hours from right now!!!)

    Will anyone else be going? I would love to meet up with anybody from the board who will be at the show. Let me know so that we can make arrangements.

    Tippy---Do you live nearby? I will be staying at the Holiday Inn in Powell. I wish I was going tomorrow, but I am working and then traveling on Thursday morning.

    Maybe we could meet up Saturday morning.....

    hi marcia

    our local guilds have chartered a bus for Saturday. hope you enjoy the show and if you get a chance mark your calendar for the quilt show in cleveland in October. at least one hundred QUILTS on display last year and demos and LQS's.

    if you get a chance go to Mamaw's Thimble--she is having a great sale at her store. you can catch the limobus at the corner and ride to her store for free and then back to the show.

    Have a good time!

    Thanks for the info Mickey! I found Mammaw's on the internet and called her for directions. She was really sweet on the phone and said to be sure to introduce myself when I came in the shop (like it isn't going to be crazy busy and she would even care!!)

    Are you going to be there too?

    I'm not going to get to go :(
    I didn't know about it until it was too late to sign up for classes so I decided to just pass this one by. It's about a 4 hour drive although I really really wanted to go and test drive the long arms so I know what one I want to get... but it's such a long drive to be able to attend for only about 4 or 5 hours :(

    I'm going to try to get to go to Paducah. I guess that's the next big one that would be near me - a long way away. I was hoping to replace my home sewing machine that is sitting on my frame before then.... I guess by the time I get one I will have gotten fairly good at quilting by then - and a lot of donation quilts will have been done lol.

    Mamaw will love to meet you and she will take time to talk to you if you take the time to say hello Even if she is busy she will still take a few minutes to say hello.

    She will be setting up a small store at our show in October. 200-400 bolts of fabric and 10-15 tubs of fat quarters.

    we will also have 3 0r 4 other local stores set up as well

    Went to the Knoxville Quilt Show and had a wonderful time.
    I met Marcia Thursday morning and enjoyed our brief time together, she was meeting other people and when they arrived we parted ways and unfortunately never connected again.

    There was so many booths and so much to see and do there just wasn't enough time to do it all. The crowds were good. I only had the one day and had to make the most of my time, I was there approximately 6 -1/2 hours and I sure did MELT THE PLASTIC.... hope it doesn't take long to recover...

    The show will be held in Knoxville thru the year 2012.... smiling and making plans for next year already!!!!!
