The Dallas Quilt Celebration 2009 runs Friday, March 13-Sunday, March 15, presented by the Quilter's Guild of Dallas. Lot's of people, mostly ladies, showed up for the opening morning of the quilt show. The rain did not keep us away! The quilts on display were quite beautiful, and some very elaborate with crystals and beads. I was disappointed that the number of vendors (134) had decreased by 25-30%. Perhaps the economy is responsible for this. Most of the vendors were quilt-related, with some fashion sewing, button and bead jewelry and other tidbits here and there. I was wishing for more garment -related booths, but they just were not there.

There was a separate area with tables and chairs for resting and eating. Some basic meals, burgers and hot dogs, beverages and snacks were offered. It was not anything that was very enticing for shopping ladies in need of fortification.

I enjoyed the show and shopping, even though it was not up to par with what they have had in the past.

Hi there - I've done the Dallas show for 16 years, this was the first time I wasn't a vendor. For me it was a factor of money (higher costs etc) and a few other things. I felt lost not being there! Back in the early 90's I was the vendor chair for 2 years; we always had 150 booths (my cutoff was 150) with a waiting list. It almost broke my heart to see the decrease you talked about. Fingers crossed finances will be better, and I'll be back doing the show next year. Thank you so very much for the write up! -- Annie
