    What a neat idea,! I wish we had something like that show here. Local guilds have shows, but not every year.Can’t wait to see more pictures!

    I live in Kentucky so you would think there would be a state quilt show, but I am not aware of one. Of course we do have that little thing they do in Paducah a couple times a year!

    Our Guild has a fair every second year, and another event called Tote and Gloat every year. That’s the good one. We import a teacher from overseas for some classes prior to the event, then have a day of vendors and the quilt sharing. This is when volunteers parade our latest quilts across a stage while we address the crowd explaining inspiration and pattern etc, then after all the quilts, the teacher gives a talk. And in amongst it all we have about one hundred door prizes, from fabric to chocolates. It’s a fabulous day out, all for about $15, or if you are on committee…a lot of elbow grease.

    I wish I had time to go to more shows….but then I would want to buy more fabric at the vendor booths…oh no!! Looks like a wonderful event.

    I was hoping to get to St. Cloud for the show but had other obligations. Those little dresses are my favorite. I’ve never been to the big show in Fargo but I’ve been to smaller ones around the state and also to the big ones in Tucson and Phoenix (Mesa) multiple times. Your older fabric still would make a lovely quilt.
