We love going to quilt shows. Sure the days are long and the set up and tear down are back breaking. However, it is such a joy to meet with our loyal and new customers. As I have said before, quilters are some of the nicest people.
Traveling to quilt show also has a side benefit.Connie and I are both “foodies.”We love fresh, regional locally owned restaurants.There are times we patronize fast food and chain restaurants because of the convenience, but in our travels, we try to seek out those rare gems, serving made from scratch unique cuisine. Prior to our arrival, I do an internet search of Yelp and Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
Here are some of the fun restaurants we have enjoyed:
So far, our quilt show travels have been to the western states.Given that we must bring inventory to quilt shows,
we have not yet been able to enjoy the wonderful east coast and southern cuisine. Perhaps when I retire.
We often get helpful advice from our customers and ideas for new patterns. When we come to your town, stop by our booth and give us your favorite local restaurants.
