I managed to wake up earlier on Sunday morning than I do on most workdays and made it to Novi just as the show was opening. It still took me 15 minutes to find a parking spot. I didn't get a chance to attend any of the many seminars or classes thanks to a wedding, bowling outing and craft fair also taking place that weekend, but I at least made it to the vendor floor.
Some of my local fabric/quilt shops (Haberman Fabrics and Material Girls, LLC) had booths, as well as a ton of other local and not-so-local shops. I was really hoping to find some unique, new or hard to find items, but I'm super sorry to say that I was a bit underwhelmed. Material Girls did have a decent Japanese selection at the show, but I didn't spend to much time looking because I can pop over to the store almost anytime. I did take an opportunity to feel Heather Ross' Far Far Away which they have an awesome selection of, and I know I'll snag some someday, but I really need to justify the price.
