Your First Big Quilt Show

Planning your first trip to a national quilt show? There will be so many great classes on the schedule that you’ll want to register for every one, and it’s tempting to pack as many classes into your days as possible. Don’t do it! Be careful to leave breaks in your day, or only schedule half-day classes for most days at the show. It’s easy to over schedule yourself, leaving little or no time for shopping, admiring the quilts on display, or just taking a break mid-day so you don’t run out of steam before the show closes. Plan your schedule carefully so that you can experience a variety of activities—your feet will thank you, too!
