One of the things I look forward to most in the coming months is the ability to travel!
Last night, hubby asked me to put together my quilt travel bucket list. I had an absolute ball researching and compiling info on various events. Mind you, quilt shows are back in person in 2022, but much of the niche quilty destination travel has yet to be announced. Quilters who have been unable to attend events for nearly two years are clamoring to get back out there. Be aware that specialized quilty travel tends to sell out fast. Like everything else, the cost of travel has risen, too!
Most of my quilty travel plans for 2022 involve regional events within a six hour drive of Atlanta. I’m still in full-time worker bee mode through June, so events like Road to California, Sewing & Stitchery Expo in WA, Quilt Week in Branson, MO, Houston Quilt Festival – all have to wait. If the Garden of Quilts at Thanksgiving Pointe is scheduled for September 2022, I’ll be heading to Salt Lake City for a few days.
Personally, I like to attend events and retreats that involve classes or are project based. Weekend or 4 day/3 night schedules are preferred. I like to have my own room. I prefer to drive when I can, but my little Elna STAR or FW is ready to fly whenever I am.
Right now, I look forward to one quilty event each month in 2022. Four of those events are out-of-town and require a road-trip! Woo-hoo!
