Actually, Barbara, you do not even have to wait until Houston to see the list of venders! Just go to http://www.quilts.com, click at the top on shows, scroll down and click on Houston Festival, then click on Alphabetical List of Exhibitors! That will REALLY get your juices flowing! Then once you get to Fesitval and get the Catalog, check to see what booths your favorite venders are in. This just kind of gives you a head start!

Barbara,
Be prepared to be overwhelmed! Take the time to go up upstairs and look for the shipping booth. You can UPS your purchases home. Very handy!

Buy vendor catalog and study it at night and make a list of must see booths. Any demo you want to see head for that booth first so you can get up close! Shop first. The weekend is extremely crowded and it is nearly impossible to get into a booth. A lot of the booths are very small.

If you want to think on something before buying, write down the booth number! You think you will remember where it is, but you won't. Experience talking, here. LOL

Even if you just sit down in the dining area and just have a sip of water. Take a break.

This will be my first time if we actually get there. I mainly want to meet up with all my friends with TQS. I am excited about the baby coming right now. After I know he is safe, I will get excited about Houston.

How appropriate was this? I was to look for the smilebox with badges just to have a look at others as I have been working on mine this afternoon. I'm not going to Houston but on Saturday I'll attend the Danish Quilt Association as they celebrate 25 years and I'm going to see Ricky as he is giving seminars there. I look forward to this event.
