As some of you may know, the annual Quilters' Heritage Celebration in Lancaster, PA has folded. However, the American Quilter's Society (of Paducah fame) has scheduled a new show in Lancaster in March of this year. It will be held at the new Lancaster County Convention Center and other nearby venues.
The Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild of Wellsboro, PA is sponsoring a bus to the new show on Friday, March 26, 2010. Signups are now open for non-members. Here are the details.
Cost -- $55 for members, $70 for nonmembers (this may be reduced if more than the minimum number of people sign up). The price includes round trip transportation from Benedict's Bus Service in Whitneyville (in between Wellsboro and Mansfield, PA) or the community center in Covington, admission to the show, and gratuity for the driver. All other expenses are extra. Lunch is on your own at the show and there will be a dinner stop at Country Cupboard in Lewisburg on the return trip. The bus will leave Benedict's in Whitneyville at 6AM with a stop at the community center in Covington and arrive at the show at approximately 10AM. We will leave the show at 4PM and arrive back at Benedict's sometime after 9PM.
Please note that according to the AQS website, there is currently a $15 shuttle fee for those who wish to use the AQS shuttle to the different venues. It is not included in the MLQG price. However, AQS may decide to lower or even eliminate the shuttle fee. If so, it will be on the AQS website.
For details on the show itself, check out the page on AQS. If you would like to join the MLQG on this trip to the exciting new show, please email Anya (click on her name for email address -- it will be on the left side of her profile page) for info on how to sign up.
And don't let the picture at the top of this post scare you...we won't be taking a school bus! It will be a very comfortable coach provided by Benedict's.
