    Mountain Quiltfest - Pigeon Forge, TN 3/12-3/16

    Is anyone going to Mountain Quiltfest in Pigeon Forge - March 12-16? I've been going for a number of years and always enjoy it. My mom and I are going down and renting a cabin. We'll hit the show and then hit the local quilt shops - I think among Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville and Knoxville - there are about 15 shops! Come check out the beauty of the Smoky Mountains and the hospitality of the wonderful people of Tennessee!!

    We'll be there on Saturday. I haven't ever been to a quilt show, so not sure what to expect. I'm bringing my enabling husband, but leaving the debit card in the car!!!
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    I will be there Friday & Saturday. Only live 125 miles, so go every year. Usually a bus load goes from our Guild, but this year no bus, so my wonderful husband is going with me.

    P.S. We should wear identifying name badges so we might recognize one another.

    My 2 sisters and I will be driving up from Mississippi on Tuesday, the 12th, and will stay until Friday. So looking forward to it. I try to go every year with my husband, but he is not able to go this year due to leg and back pain, so looking forward to attending with my 2 quilting sisters!!!

    I'm going for the week with my husband and renting a cabin. This is my third year and I just love it. Taking three classes one of them is Heirloom Machine Quilting The vendors and show is great but not easy on by pocketbook. pocketbook try to stick to my "grocery list" so I don't overspend wish me luck.

    I wanted to go, my sister lives in the Oak Ridge area, and I am due for a visit. BUT hubby has a reward trip for work to go to Florida this weekend, so off to Florida we go. I would love to see pictures, I have never been because my DD birthday is April 8 and take her to visit my sis. Since it's almost 700 miles one way, kind of hard to make 2 trips that close together.

    If you can get over to Franklin,Nc, you won't want to miss A Stitch in Time. It is a fabulous shop that is not to be missed. You won't be disappointed. There is also another shop that is nice also, Deb's Cat's and Quilts. I hope you can make to these two shops.

    I hope the car is not parked too far away. Sooooo many new things to see and buy. It's a great inspiration. I've only been to one, the last one they had in Chicago. I want to go to Cincinnati but there doesn't seem to be a bus.

    I'm going with friends on Wednesday and staying through Monday. We just quilt up a storm! We all go together and rent cabins at Eagle Ridge, really nice cabins and nice people. Can't wait for an entire week with no responsibilities other than sewing and having a good time.
