Theresa I have now got this image in my head of you wearing nothing but glasses and a TQS name tag. :lol:

Eileen, I am really looking forward to the IQFOI and I am hoping to meet some fellow TQS'ers there. I was trying to book myself into the lectures and classes the other day but it would not accept that I had filled in my name, address etc. Has anybody else tried to book without success? Quite often I find it is a problem for us because we don't have post codes but I would have expected and Irish show to not have that problem. I did email the website and got a reply from Jim West to say that he would have the web designer look at the site.

I have returned from the Des Moines show. It was wonderful as usual. The quilts were beautiful. It is not as crowded as Paducah and not as spread out. I spent way too much :oops: , but can hardly wait to start playing with my goodies :) . I did see Teresa for a few minutes as we were going into the show. I wish I could have spent more time getting to know her. Teresa, I hope you have as much fun as I had. I won't be able to go to Houston so my next show will be Paducah. If I could stand to part with a quilt I make, maybe I would have more money for more shows. :(

Congrats on the new grandchild Cathy - long life and happiness to her.

I won't be going to Des Moine - too far from Ireland :( all we have is the Knitting and Stitching Show at the RDS in Dublin in November. But you all go off to Des Moine and Houston, don't worry about me... I'll be fine :roll:

Don't forget, you have the 1st International Quilt Festival of Ireland coming next year. What a thrill you'll all have-being in on the beginning.

I have had to change my Des Moines days to Thursday and Friday. Teresa, I will watch for you and your friends on Friday. I will be with my #1 DD and her two DDs. We are trying to keep them interested in quilting as they are entering their teen years.

I'll be at the Des Moines show on Friday and Saturday. I know there are plenty of vendors at the show but are there any shops in the area that are must see? I'm travelling with 3 current and/or former TQS members and shop hopping on the way. Teresa

Thanks for all the congratulations. Adele was my mother's middle name, and Catherine is both mine and my SIL's mother's name. Works out good that way. Everyone's happy! My mother died when I was 13, so that really made me happy. I didn't realize there was a singer, Adele, until after the baby was named. I guess it will be a more popular name now. I like the old names best. Now, I need to remember what motel my reservations is at. :oops: I will be making some phone calls "to confirm?". :lol:

Ste. Marie was fabulous as always.
saw some great great great quilts by Sue Benner, Katie Pasquini Masopust, Libby Lehman and Edyta Sitar. Sue, Katie and Edyta all taught courses - but i got to meet and chat with Katie for a few minutes when i was marvelling at hers, Sue's and Libby Lehman's quilts. Edyta's quilts were in a different location and oh so fab. Libby will be having an exhibition of her quilts (and i hope will be teaching courses) next september - i just have to take a few days off and book rooms to be able to join that. Sue and Katie both are having 4-day master-classes this week - but alas - it's awfully difficult for me to take more time off this time of the year... hopefully next year.
and there were many many many more wonderful artist - took loads of pictures - still "downsizing" them - then have to select a few to post - unfortunately i don't have the names that go with all of them - but will do my best - hope to have a blog post with some pictures by the weekend - but don't hold your breath :)

Ricky is going to be there and Jinny Beyer, and quite a few other very worth taking classes from teachers...
I've put in for vacation and am very much planning on attend. Unfortunately our exhibition plan hasn't been finalized yet for next spring and i can't book 'till i know when i'll have to be where for work or organize something - grrrr
would love to meet you there :)

Well Ritzy it's not much but it's all we've got here. I will have to save my pin money and try to make it to one of the big shows in the US next year... or the year after, depending on how many pins I can sell :lol:
