    I am running a bus trip to the Quilt Odyssey Quilt show in Hershey, Pa. on July 24th from Hazleton, Pa. Cost is $35 and covers the bus and show entrance fee. Like to join us? Just send me a PM and I could get you the info needed and registration form. Glad to answer any questions you may have

    Happy quilting
    Debbie

    Once you're done on the west coast, will y'all come pick me up on the east coast? :lol:

    I would love to go to the show, but believe it or not, I will be in Lancaster, PA the weekend before. I can't go to PA two weekends in a row, that's too much. So for all those that are going, let's see some wonderful pictures! :)

    Hazleton is south of Wilkes-Barre, Scranton off of Rt 81. Or taking Rt. 80 it is off of the White Haven -Pocono area exits.
    Or you can take the split where Route 80 and 81 cross in the Hazleton area. I figure they are some of the cities or towns you may have heard of so it gives you somewhat of an idea. Hope that helps a little. Not as good at directions as my husband would be but you get the idea. Come along, Ohio isn't too far.

    Not as long as we can stop at the great shops in the Colorado Springs area. Been there and made up my own shop hop. Spent money like I was growing it on trees

    Michigan and Seattle no problem. Hey while we are at it, do we have any takers in Hawaii? We call it a "Flying bus trip". We could learn a little Hawaiian quilting along the way.

    What part of Long Island? We lived in West Hampton Beach over 30 years ago when my husband was stationed in Moriches (think that's what it was) with the Coast Guard. My son was born in South Hampton. It was beautiful back then so I'm sure it is even better now. Still remember everything being really expensive in the summer and prices going down in the winter. Just loved it though. Believe it or not I haven't been there since

    Well if you left a lot of money there and I left a bundle too, then that is why they are coming back again. And yes, I am ready to do it all over again. What day are you going?

    Unbelievable !!!! I always hated when the tourists came because then everything was raised in price just simply for that reason. Now it just seems like it is expensive all the time. I'm not familiar with Bedford but I'll take note of it when we are traveling next time.
