It's mainly a shopping opportunity as there are vender's from several states.
I enjoyed going thru all the speciality patterns, I bought a shirt pattern where the sleeves and tails detach. There were all kinds of supplies I would have enjoyed but I haven't been creating much these days, but it was fun to see all the new ideas.
The program has the websites of most of the vender's so I may visit some online.

Weds. we toured the Underground Salt Museum in Hutchinson, KS.
We went down 650 feet. The Museum opened 2007 and is the only one of its kind in the Western Hemisphere.
The mine is still operating, it's salt is used for industrial purposes and for road salt.
It is also used as a secure warehouse houseing facility for business records and classic Hollywood films.
We took a Kansas Scenic byway home which took us to Lucas, KS and it's famous Garden of Eden built by S.P. Dinsmoor in 1927. It has been featured on PBS's Rare Visions and Roadside Revelaations. It was a planned stop for us as the Carlow's knew Emily Dinsmoor's 2nd wife. She had moved to Ex. Spgs. after Dinsmoor passed away and she had remarried a Ruckel and had 3 more children, the youngest was a best friend of Bob's. So they wanted to see this marvel of concrete and limestone.
Here Bob is looking over a stone carving of Inez Marshall (1907-1984.)
In the backyard the center has exhibits of the limestone work used in many of the buildings made in the 1870-1920's.
Kansas is really a beautiful state and we have alot more exploring to do.

We enjoyed the Ken Burns National Park series, hopefully we can visit most of the 391 units as they are called, parks, monuments, battlefields, historic sites, rivers, seashores, trails, memorials, preserves and recreational areas. They are all listed in our owner's manual.
We truly live in a Sweet land of Liberty
We are the most dangerous species of life on the planet, and every other species, even the earth itself, has cause to fear our power to exterminate.
But we are also the only species which, when it chooses to do so, will go to great effort to save what it might destroy.
