    Houston Quilt Market?

    Is anyone else going?

    As a separation gift to myself I booked a flight down and am staying with my best friend who lives 6 blocks from the convention center.

    I would love to meet up with people from this board.

    Are you a business? This is a wholesale buying show. Quilt FESTIVAL is the consumer show. It starts a couple of days after Quilt Market ends. HUGE!

    Sandygirl is right. I'll be at Quilt Festival but not at market. I used to do work for Sulky and get a pass to market but mostly I go to festival.

    I'm not taking classes. I live on the far northwest side and it's such a hassle to get there with the morning traffic, I've given up on classes. For years I had a group of women that I went with and we all took classes. Their classes are great!

    Oh, I wish I could go, but our guild doesn't hire a bus. Everyone goes on their own. My sister has been a few times, but haven't been yet. I was born and raised in Houston and have no desire to fight the traffic there any more.

    My cousin lives across town from the show. She hires a car service (not a taxi) to drive her there and pick her up at an arranged time. She goes every year for two to three days.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Bonnie Hunter has been talking about Quilt Market/Festival on her blog. She was pitching her new books, playing cards and rulers this year. Sounds exciting and I hope you have a blast!

    Traffic is horrible, but worth it! (IMO)
