    I haven't been to a quilt show before, so I'm really looking forward to the show in DSM, Oct 6-9. Anybody else headed there?

    I would suggest pinning a piece of fabric to your top, that way others will know you are a member of the quilting board

    also set up a time to meet at the show!

    just send pm to the ones going so you can set up a time to meet, chat and have fun!

    I have gone to the Des Moines show for several years and wouldn't miss it, if I can help it. It is a really big show now since AQS is part of it. Save your money because there are wonderful vendors too. Have a fun time...

    I'm so excited to go!! I haven't ever went to it either but am going the first day. My sister is going along--even though she doesn't sew or quilt. (What a good heart she has!). I am dreaming about buying a long arm and will be researching all the long arm quilt booths. (Maybe I'll make my sister try one and brainwash her into becoming a quilter)!! It is 5 1/2 hours away from here but that at least is still within a reasonable driving distance and it will be a nice getaway for my sister and I. We used to go to a huge Craft Sale every fall but we don't do that anymore because one can only hang so much stuff on your walls in your house--and besides--I have now become a quiltoholic instead of a craftaholic!!!!

    I am going to the quilt show down there.. with my 3 sisters. Can't walk for a long period of time.. hope there are many chairs for me to sit on and rest a few! We have gone there for a few years... I always stayed in the motel room. This time, the sisters insist I go.. so hopefully I can go and not get too tired! Thanks.. Linda in Sioux City.
