AQS Quilt Show, Lancaster, PA
Just home from the AQS Quilt Show in Lancaster, PA. There have been many changes for us since the Mancuso Show last year.
The show was at the Convention Center. We were transported by shuttle bus from our motels. This was a PITA. Wait till the top of the hour to leave the motel. Wait for the scheduled bus to go back to motel. Sit at Best Western 20 minutes after 5 p.m. on Friday before we were driven to the Day's Inn nearby. No explanation for the delay.
The show was on 3 levels at the Convention Center. Our feeling was that lighting was poor in some areas so we couldn't see some of the quilts very well.
Winning quilts were not grouped together so we could find them.
It didn't seem like there were as many bed sized quilts as before. There were many art and wall But we had a great time seeing old friends Helen Marie and Jackey, meeting Gail, Ann, Ginny and Nannette. It was great to see Jan and Dave again.
We got to a number of shops and did serious retail therapy. The restaurants served us good food.
When we arrived at our motel we found that Helen Marie, Jackey and others were trying to find the Lancaster Brewery. We finally made our way there and had a delicious salad of chicken on mesculan greens. That was our after dark tour of Lancaster.
Now to unpack my purchases.
I had an opportunity to talk with Billie Lauder and purchase her books. They are being shipped.
