Hi, All – If you’re interested in attending QuiltCon in Savannah, CA next year, it’s time to start planning. As the event gets closer, there may folks who are willing to share a room/need a room, which can cut down on hotel costs (quilting AND adult slumber party anyone?).

The convention center is near Historic Savannah, so if you stay in the historic district, pedestrian and public transportation is available to the convention center.

Important Dates:

NOW: Hotel reservations. Hotels are already sold out near the convention center. If you reserve now, double check change/cancellation fees, in case life happens and you cannot attend (boooo).
