I'm lucky...my DH and I always make a mini break of our trip to the FOQ. We stay in a B&B less than 10 minutes drive away who does an offer of 3 nights for the price of 2, so we leave on Wednesday morning, spend the afternoon at a National Trust place before checking in. This year we are going to spend Thursday together, maybe visiting another NT place - usually I have 3 days at the NEC but as I'm not doing any workshops I decided to go Friday & Saturday instead. So on these days DH drops me off just before 10am at the NEC and goes off to do his own thing for the day before picking me up at 6pm. On the Saturday we then drive straight home.

After last year I did suggest that we gave the FOQ a miss and go to Harrogate instead as I didn't want him to feel I was dragging him there year after year...but he insisted that we go again

Looking forward to meeting up with the 'Coming Thru' Crew' again

Claire you made me laugh with your journey plan smiley

I think I shall be wearing my hat badge, so if anyone spots it please say 'hello'.

Hi Kimmers, lovely to see you back. I saw your work in the Quilters' Guild magazine under the Sue Belton Memorial Prize. It's lovely.

I have 2 one hour classes on Saturday, so Friday is meeting up with the coming through crew.....and if Bridget doesn't know about us,....she will soon enough.

Glad you got your tickets Di....hope we can meet up.

Anybody else still have their 'Hat Badges' we made ? If so shall we wear them again?

Tessa I still have your mobile number from 2 years ago. I assume it hasn't changed.

Well done Di on getting your tickets. Must get mine later. I'm looking at staying at Ibis Airport - hope there's a room still available.
