Sneak Peak at AQS Lancaster

Posted on: March 15, 2011

I stopped by the Marriot Hotel to meet up with Sherry Rogers Harrison. What a neat lady! She will be teaching her Inklique classes all week at the Quilt Show. The Convention Center is located inside the hotel. Tonight all was quiet, except for the lone security guard. We took a peak into the main hall-all set and ready to go! Tomorrow it will be filled with quilters from all over the country and from other parts of the world.

If you attend the show, be sure to stop by the Red Rose Quilters Guild Raffle ticket booth to purchase a chance to win our beautiful quilt! This year the quilt is hand appliqued AND hand quilted by members of the guild. Ticket purchases help us to fund our projects-Quilts of Valor and the children’s quilts and tote bags we make for several charity groups in Lancaster County. The coat and package check will also be manned by volunteer quilters from the guild. Be sure to use this service to keep your packages safe while you shop or attend classes. Although pretty full, there may be some spaces left in the classes and lectures so be sure to check the boards across from the registration check in. I’ll be parking at the off site parking lot to avoid the city traffic and taking the shuttle in from Burle Industries on Route 23. Parking is $5 with a $1 for the shuttle ride each way. Hassle free this year after growing pains from last year.

Wed is the first day of the 4 day event. I’ll be meeting up with Facebook quilter friends for lunch, then headed to a class on applique with Sue Nichols. In the evening it’s the All Star Review! So looking forward to this week!
