    A while back, several people commented that they were planning to attend the Quilt Show at the Hampton Convention Center, in Virginia. It was noted that some of us who plan to attend should try to have a meeting place to put some "faces" with "names" on this Board. Please respond to this topic if you are planning to attend. The dates are February 25-28th. Admission is $12.00. It would be great to personally meet some of you.

    Great to hear from you. Wow--coming all the way from OK? Now for an attempt to try to "meet." My husband and I plan to be there on Thursday and Friday. So, it will just be a matter of setting up a day, place, and time to meet. I mentioned in an earlier post that we could do it at the top of the stairs (or bottom). As you know, it is a pretty big place. Also, I could give you a cell phone number and contact me once you are there. Sue

    You know, I was thinking of holding off till Feb 1 to post a message like this....

    I am currently planning on attending on Saturday the 27, as I do every year....
    I can be convinced to change ( I have plenty of time to change my Request off at work!!!)

    Glad to hear from you. My husband and I are both planning to be there on Friday and Saturday. So, again, we need to decide the best place to meet on Friday morning. We only live about 17 miles away and usually get there early. We did not register early this year so we will be standing in line, I guess. However, the line does move quickly. Please let me know, and any other persons that are planning to attend, where you would like to meet. Sue

    To: Dawn, aliaslaceygreen and varacefan, and anyone else who is interested. Good suggestion--meet at top of stairs for an 11 AM break on Friday of the Quilt Show. You can PM me and I will give you my cell phone in case there is a problem connecting. My picture is on my Avatar--totally white hair. It will be so neat meeting some of the Board members.

    All goes well and no one gets more snow or bad weather I hope to ride along with Dawn to this one. She called me this morning and we're planning on Friday for the show! Woohoo!

    I so would like to go, but I'm 3 1/2 hours out from there and I don't travel well so I'm going to put it on the agenda for next year and stay the weekend. I'm sure it will be great fun for all. I'll be there in spirit this year anyway.

    I would like to enter a quilt in a show (I'm in PA) but I don;t know how to go about doing it. I have a couple of smaller quilts (wallhanging - but I never but any pocket in the back because the hanger was a top hanger I slid it into) - anyway, can anyone give me information how to go about entering my quilts???? and also how to go about adding a pocket for hanging (on the back of an 'already made quilt), if it is necessary ?????? Thanx.
