It's about 6 weeks 'til Quilt Festival here in Houston. I volunteered to work at the American Sewing Guild booth. I will get FREE admittance on the days I work. As of now, it looks like I will be working 2 of the 4 days of Festival. The ASG booth is usually set up in the area of the convention center where the exhibits are located. I should be able to take short breaks and check out the various exhibits there. I'm so excited! I'm planning on staying away from the vendors. I know it will be difficult to avoid the vendor area as there are usually about a thousand of them. Somehow a few yards of fabric and a gadget or two seem to want to come home with me. Not my fault! I feel blameless!
