How great it was to see this colorful billboard last week put up by VISITHATTIE on Highway 42 Bypass on the way to Petal. It is quite eye-catching. We have been having people ask, "Is this the year for your show?" (This happens every year, but we are glad they can begin to see publicity for it.) Four-color full-page ads will appear in Mississippi Magazine, Delta Magazine, Portico Magazine, and Country Roads Magazine. In addition, there will be radio ads, radio jingle spots, rack cards placed in the 12 Mississippi Welcome Centers, shops and restaurants.
The quilt show weekend will compete with USM's homecoming game, but we hope quilt lovers will make time to see this great show.
