Thomas Stodola, Baraboo WI

Just thought we would send a picture and note about our Quilt Expo trip. The accommodations were great. Airlines and airport transportation went just fine also. We had a great time, walked many, many miles around the expo, spent a good deal of money and want to thank the Wisconsin Quilt Shop Hop for the trip.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

It is an event one has to experience. No narrative or pictures can convey the enormity of the event and the international flavor of the attendees from Africa, Europe, Australia and the Far East. We took a lot of pictures of quilts(200+) and are sharing them with friends and family.

Thank you again,
Tom and Mary
