Mancuso Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival – February 28 – March 3, 2019

Location:   Hampton-Roads Convention Center, 1610 Coliseum Drive, Hampton, VA  23666

A group of Guild members (so far we have eight) are planning to attend this Mancuso Show and are reserving overnight rooms at a hotel in Williamsburg which is approximately 20 minutes from the Convention Center.

We have been able to reserve rooms for a very good rate - $54 (+tax) per room, per night.    Rooms each have 2 queen beds, so for those who don’t mind sharing a room --- and splitting the cost, this is an amazing price!   You can also just have a single room to yourself.   Parking is free and there is a complimentary breakfast!

The hotel is:

Williamsburg Woodlands Hotel and Suites

105 Visitor Center Drive

Williamsburg, VA   23185

Tel.  855-235-1675

If we have ten people in our friends group, we will also be able to reserve a hospitality suite for $69.50 (+tax) per night.   This is a large room with bathroom, living room, large refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, large tv, plus a banquet table to set up our sewing machines.   The cost of the suite would also be divided between attending members (10 or more of us).

If you would like to reserve a hotel room with the group, please e-mail Mary Pauley –

Please provide your name, cell phone number, email address and which nights you would need accommodations.

Helen Wasserman will be notifying the hotel reservation names and individual nights of stay.  Then each person will need to call the hotel directly with their credit card info to secure their reservations, or make any changes prior to arrival on their own.

Once we know who wants to reserve space, and specific dates, we can work on potential car pools.
