Welcome to QCA, Monika.  I have fond memories of taking our GKs on hikes at that age! 

We also live in an area that is great for hiking and currently we are doing a lot of hilly hikes to get in shape for XC skiing...it's just around the corner for us. I am located in No. Central Washington State in the Methow Valley which has over 200 km of groomed cross-country ski trails.   (You probably already have enough snow near Denver!)

I am sure you will enjoy QCA,

Monika - Welcome and what a pretty little girl! She must be destined to be a hiker - 1.3 miles and she was still smiling??? Wow! Of course, you know we want photos - quilts, critters, kids...

Hey, Monika!

I live in Northglenn - it's great to see another Coloradan on the boards  because everyone else here live so close to each other they can go to retreats and everything.  I sometimes feel kinda "lonely"!  Do you belong to a guild?  If so, which one? Do you live close to Northglenn?  Where do you like to shop?  I know people can "friend" eachother on this site, but I have yet to master the "message to friend" thing.  Welcome aboard!

I live in Longmont, don't belong to a quild but mostly because I was so active in the needlework community for so long that I got burned out on the drama and politics of small groups..  But I am starting to get to know more quilters and look forward to meeting a few in my neck of the woods... I understand that there are a few retreats in this area and I'm hoping to find out more about them and go to one.

We should keep in touch. I bought my Bernina at The Presser Foot in Longmont, and occasionally go to the quilt shop there.  Welcome aboard!  :D

Absolutely... That would be nice.  I've also started to expand my LQS geography and am  starting to search out shops in the Denver area.  But I have to say, I do enjoy 'my' shop.

Hi there...so good to see fellow Coloradans! Where is your shop?  I have been to shops from Denver to Breckenridge.  I live in Thornton and do not belong to a guild - just sew on my own but would be nice to find ladies to get together with this winter and quilt and gab.  I am not one for drama either so quiet group that gets along would be awesome:-)  My favorite shop is in Brighton - B-Right On and also Above and Beyond in Thornton.  Took my first quilting class at B-Right On and fell in love with quilting - the rest is history:-)

Its very nice to see Coloradans here... I shop at The Quilters Studio in Longmont and do enjoy going up to Loveland to the shop up there.  I've only really started quilting big time because I can see well enough to sew right now, not to stitch.  I am now on a search of different quilt shops to see how else to feed the addiction...  

A gathering would be fun...

Monika,

I too am from Colorado (Metro area just south of Denver barely).

If you happen to plan on coming down this way let me know there
is a neat little quilt shop not far from who has a "unique" concept
they buy fabric (prewashed or not) the way they sell it is if it is LQS
quality fabric it is $5 per yard, batiks are $6 per yard, chain store
fabrics (Hobby Lobby, Joann's) is $1.99 per yard.

Here is a link to their website.
