Just about SHOW TIME!!!

Just a "quick note" to let you know that I may not post much until after Sunday. Tomorrow is Preview night for the Quilter's Guild of Dallas members and their families for Quilt Celebration 2009!!! The actual show starts on lucky Friday March 13 (10 - 6). It continues on Saturday the 14th during the same times and Sunday the 15th from noon to 5 pm. You can get advance tickets at area quilt shops or tickets at the door. With the cold weather and rain that has come into the area, I highly recommend the advance tickets, if you have time to go get them. We try to scoot everyone in as quickly as possible, but the advance ticket holders definitely get in much quicker! There is information about the show, tickets, miniature quilt auction, etc. on the guild website. There is a list of shops that have advance tickets also, but they are on a first come first serve basis, so I'd call first before driving over to get them. I noticed that no phone numbers were listed for the shops on the website. My suggestion is to call Google Information for the phone number. If I remember correctly, it's free and they will connect you to the number you're wanting. I've used it a few times and was very happy with it. Here is the number for Google Information 1- 800 - 466 - 4411. I've got it in my cell phone list of numbers!

I will be at the show location - MARKET HALL - before we open and until we close (or very near it on Friday) each day. I'm part of on-site admissions and part of the show committee. I'm very proud of this quilt show and I'm sure every member of our guild is. It's one of the very largest all volunteer shows in the country! If you are any where near Dallas, TX I do hope you'll come to the show this weekend. It promises to be a great one. Until then.....

Probably not. I would have to get permission from each quilt owner to post them on the internet. Copyright issues and all of that stuff.

I have taken some made and owned by friends, that I'll try to post. We'll just have to see.
