I can never seem to work it into my schedule. I already have 2 things planned and can not fit another thing in. And I thought retiring would give me more time to do stuff for me. Silly me! What was I thinking?This message has been edited. Last edited by: TerryOH,
When in April is it? shogun- I think cincinnati is farther than 4 hours for you. I'm driving to U of M tomorrow morning for testing and mapquest and google are telling me 3 hours 20 minutes from Columbus to Ann Arbor. Cincy to Columbus is another 2 hours, I think.
It's a nice big show. McPatches and I went last year and enjoyed it. The quilt show was nice and lots of vendors. The show is April 11-13, 2013. I'm not going to be able to make it this year unfortunately.
I went 2yrs ago, loved it. DH bought me the greatest pair of sandal that day. Didn't get to go last year as GGD was born. This year it's her birthday party (bummer). I hope I can go next year. Sure wanted to go!
For anyone in the area and going to show this week. I had an extra few minutes to myself today and decided to drive to Dry Ridge and go to the Quilt Box Quilt Store. It is just south of Cincinnati, not more than a 30 minute drive. It is a real nice, large variety quilt store. Sits back off the road in a beautiful place in a log home. They have been written up in Quilt Sampler Magazine in past. This week April 6-13 they are celebrating their 30th anniversary. You will get 25% off anything you buy. Thats a great deal. I would love to get back there but doubt it will happen this week. If you are in area and have time it is more than worth the visit. You will not be disappointed.
It was a very small crowd at the quilt show today, compared to previous years. I didn't have to wait in line for anything, not even the ladies room. There wasn't even a line to get in at 10:30. That's not a good sign......
I just left there and am heading back home. I also thought the crowd was small. Empty bathrooms. No lines at vendors and not many people around the quilts. We did see some gorgeous quilts and I bought a few fat quarters. We enjoyed it.
