I've went wasn't overly impressed. Did get some great deals though. One year I got WRM albums for $18 each the 3 ring type. And got a couple of good deals at JillBeans booth.

I don't think it's worth going out of your way for, but if you have the day free and live close it's fine.

I went last year, and I'm going this year. I found some good bargains, enjoyed browsing, and bought a Saturday crop ticket so I could get out of the house and hang out in a scrap atmosphere. It looked full of other happy people, too!

And not a big deal for me but I know it is for others - I did get an email that Tim Holtz will be there doing demos. So if nothing else, maybe you could get a picture .

I have always enjoyed going. I think they have great deals and any day spent surrounded with scrapbooking stuff is wonderful

Ah, yes! This year I think it is totally worth it since Tim Holtz will be there. I forgot to consider that in my previous response. Watching Tim Holtz create and play around with all the different inks and tools is nothing short of amazing and inspirational.

If you don't hit other expos, then yes go to this one. I drive to other expos and think they rate higher as they seem to have more vendors, better prices, and better classes. Mega Meet and Stampaway are great conventions and worth the drive. I've also heard the Akron stamp show is good, but I have not been there yet. I don't think any expo is bad necessarily, I just have to budget my money and can't hit them all
