An amazing experience to be around women of God!...I truly enjoyed being in the convention area as well as visiting Shoreline Village.

Several years ago a major quilt show was held her for 5 years. It is sad that 40,000 women with lots of money to spend have to travel elsewhere for this convention. The loss of revenue was great to the city. COME BACK.

Attended a conference there as an exhibitor, and really enjoyed the layout and atmosphere. The staff members were all really helpful and friendly. The cafe was ridiculously overpriced though, as one small panini breakfast sandwich and one small orange juice costs over $18!
