March 7-10, 2010 is the date. I was lucky to attend this festival two years ago while my sister was still living in NJ. It is a great show, with lots of vendors, competitions, and a great exhibit. There are workshops and lectures, and a great array of activities. The show takes place at the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset frm 10 to 6. Admission is $12.
The annual American Quilter’s Society show will be held in Paducah, KY on April 21-24, 2010 at the Paducah Expo Center. This is an important show for quilters, one that you shouldn’t miss. For more information, visit http://www.americanquilter.com/shows_contests/paducah/2010/general_info/
