    I love the quilt shows, I take pictures every time I go to one ,I worked the quilt show this year here in Lake Havasu, helping put up and taking down the quilts, my husband came down to see the show and take more pictures, while he was wandering around he went to the Odegaards booth from Flagstaff, fell in love with the mechinesms of the new 830 bernina and ended up buying one from Charlie , I am learning to use the embroidery part ,having fun making bow tie purses and shopping bags, The latest Fons and Porter magazine has a very simple bag in it , using up some scraps, and making Lady Hawk vests, I love the Horny Toad one , I have it almost finished from scraps too :thumbup:

    Love the name tag idea, vunderbar !

    And/Or we could meet up at the Guild Table (right around the corner when one first walks in the doors) at a certain time on any or all of the days.

    It would be nice to meet y'all and since I'll have my camera pictures would be in order ~ it's gonna be a great show!
    either way,I still will wear a name tag and hang around the tables,like I said before I will be there around 10am on sat

    Any takers??????


    I didn't realize Lake Havasu had a show, but I certainly could put that one on my list ;D

    This is Tucson's 32nd Annual and I even though I didn't start quilting until 5 or so years ago (still a beginner) I've been attending quilt shows for much longer! So much Beauty say nothing of the talent all under one roof!

    Alrighty...I'll be at the Guild table on Saturday at 10 AM :D ~ name tag and bells on my toes, watch for the dancing quilter...LOL

    I'll be sure to include my screen name & Quiltingboard.com

    Wish I had an embroidery machine now, could whip up a pretty name tag. Something for my wish list, maybe....right behind the longarm ...

    As a result of the change, I'll be there demonstrating the Creative Feet presser feet and the new Octi-hoops this year. I'm glad I happened upon this quilting board - as this will be our first year attending. I'm glad to hear how you all feel about the show and look forward to meeting you. 8-)

    Thanks, I'd love to meet you there - and look forward to this new experience. It was nice to be invited to exhibit - I missed out on the opportunity last year but all the ducks are in their row this year ;)

    Just got back from the show and I am totally in awe of the talent demonstrated by so many of the exhibitors. The "Best in Show" quilt was truly outstanding in every way and included some techniques I hadn't seen used on a quilt before. The door prize quilt has also been beautifully done and I made sure I bought my tickets on the way in :-) Of course, I also bought more fabric and quilt patterns while I was there ;-)

    All in all, a fun day and definitely well worth the drive from Phoenix!
