5 Alvin L Herrington Retired at I Am Retired Edition Attended : Nov, 2017

I enjoyed the 2 days I was there. Met a lot of wonderful people, that enjoy quilting. Saw a lot of interesting people as they looked at the quilts. booths were interesting I went up to get something to eat, around 4-430, they were gone


5 Greg Rabell Individual Edition Attended : Nov, 2017

This was my first time there and had a wonderful time. Spent lots of money and got lots of great tools. I also have never seen so many fantastic quilts. I am hoping to visit in 2018. I can't wait to do it againThank you, Greg Rabell


5 Beverly Lynn Owner at Thelma & Louise Quilting Edition Attended : Nov, 2017

My complaint was the woman checking us in at the prepaid counter was rude. We also were not given the class room assignment list. Any chance the vendors could stay open later for those taking classes?


5 Phyllis B. Harris houston at Self-Employed Edition Attended : Nov, 2017

wonderful use of venue space, good booklet, wide range of categories and activities - and food court was fast and reasonable! Maybe add another photo opportunity? My sisters and I had a great time!!
