Burlington, Vermont - June 25 through 27, 2010
LaQuinta Inn - Burlington
The 2010 Swarm will be held in Burlington, VT June 24-27, 2010. We will be staying at the LaQuinta Inn on Williston Road in South Burlington, VT, a very short drive (or shuttle ride) from Burlington International Airport (BTV). The phone number is (802) 865-3400 to make reservations. I have had them set aside 10 rooms, some double & some queen. Be sure to mention The Quilting Beehive when you call for reservations. They also have two rooms with fridge and microwave which I haven't set aside. Our rate for the double or queen (which has a coffeemaker) is $107.16 for Thursday and $125.10 for Friday & Saturday nights and includes a continental breakfast. The hotel is just across the parking lot from JoAnn Fabrics and next door to Al's French Frys. The Champlain Valley Exposition where the VT Quilt Festival is being held is a couple of miles away (maybe a 15 minute drive). Margaret & I will be getting together soon to do more planning and will send out more updates.
Vermont Quilt Festival
This year we have the Vermont Quilt Festival at the same time!
Located in Vermont's scenic Lake Champlain valley, Shelburne Museum is one of the nation's finest, most diverse, and unconventional museums of art and Americana. Over 150,000 works are exhibited in a remarkable setting of 39 exhibition buildings, 25 of which are historic and were relocated to the Museum grounds.
Looking for fun things to do in Vermont? Our factory is open year-round (7 days a week) except Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, & New Year’s Day. It's one of the most popular Vermont activities! We recommend planning to spend about an hour and 15 minutes on-site at The Vermont Teddy Bear Factory.
