    So of course, if you are going to be there we should figure a way to meet sometime. I think me and the other two ladies will wear Bright badges that say QB really big. So excited. ANyone else going?

    My wife, Melissa and I are going. We're flying down Friday morning and coming back home on Sunday. I don't think I'll be too hard to spot. 6' tall and male. :D

    I going down with two friends of mine. One is in my guild with me and the other just likes going to the quilt show with us. We are going down on Thursday and coming back on Sunday. It is a 12 hour drive from Lubbock to Pasadena where we will be staying with one of my friends parents. It would be nice if we could find a time and place to meet. This will be my first time to Houston.

    Yeah. This is exciting. I think I would recognize Eddie and his beautiful wife. I think a QB badge with board names is good. We will be there the 5th and 6th. Wahoooooo. My second year in a row. We will all have to powwow on here before then. Of course, it's a few months away. Just remember to look for the badges and us. My pics are on my PDA. Glad to know more are going. I am saving my money.

    Dakotamaid, you are coming a long ways. Wow. Good for you. It is a 5 hour drive for us. Staying at Hotel. And definitely using the shuttle service. LOL. We can have a plan before we go. It's a while off. I know the food court is on teh second floor and there is a Starbucks coffee. We will see. I will email my cell phone before then too.

    I think we will be dry camped with the RV in the parking lot. Haven't checked that out yet. (Our RV is only 24 feet but comfy!) We will have my MIL with us and we wanted to be able to have a spot for her to come and go from as she tires easily!! With the portable dish my hubby can watch football!!!

    My daughter is in Austin so our trips to Texas are many and my hubby loves to drive. See ya all there.

    Sorry, I don't know her. Last year we did not go because none of the Park and Rides were not available and knowing Houston, I did not want to try to find parking. I have not checked if these will be available this year. I love riding right to the door and then just getting back on right at the door. Don't have to be concerned about work traffic, etc AND there is a lot of visiting about various quilts, etc. amoung riders on the ride home.

    Hi, my wife Laura and I will be going to Houston to work in our QuiltAlbum booth at the show. We will be camping in our new 27' trailer nearby. Stop by our booth and introduce yourself as a QB member, and if you like our software program we will have a special QB price.

    I will be there. Our son and his family live in the Woodlands. Last year my husband went with me on Wednesday night for the preview. The other days he dropped me off. It would be fun to meet you all.

    I live in Galveston, about an hour from the convention center. If someone sets up a time and place (like Starbucks) to meet, I'd love to meet everyone.
