    Default Don't be jealous!!!

    Here in the Chicago Land area, the International Quilt Festival opens today......

    I took tomorrow off work to attend and am really close to taking this afternoon off to go as well!!!

    MSQC is one of the exhibitors.

    It's going to be an expensive weekend for me as I have no self control when I see all the beautiful fabrics and nifty notions!

    Sew many quilts....Sew little time.......

    Have a great day!

    Too late; already jealous.

    But still happy for you. Would love to see photos, if you're able to get some!

    Sadly work has been too busy to me for a last minute afternoon off to indulge my obsession. So I will have to wait until tomorrow.

    I will try and get pictures from the show if it's not too crazy crowded...I go every year and it can be a zoo.

    If timing would have worked out I'd be in Chicago now! That is the best show ... and just beautiful. Say HEY! to the M* staff. And with the others I'd love to see pics.

    I went to the show this morning and loved every minute of it, including the long trek from the garage to the show! Beautiful quilts on display and a lot of shopping to be had. Missouri Star has a very small booth and no Jenny this year. None of her kids either. Bought only one charm and the newest Stitched Together book. I was only there for 2 1/2 hours but could have spent a couple more there. Had fun playing around with a longarm as there were every longarm company you can imagine at the show. Some beautiful fabrics that I've never come across before we're all over the place but I only indulged a couple of times. It's just a wonderful show!
    The one sad thing is that the place was devoid of the usual crowds that have attended in the past. I'm hoping today was just a fluke in that regard. Would hate to see this show end due to lack of interest.
    Vendors come from all over the country, I even saw one gal with a beautiful booth from France.
