Barbara:
but I'll keep you open just incase things change between now and Sept. Will that be okay with you

So you don't have to give them a definite number until later????  If not, I will definitely keep trying to work things out.  I just thought you had to let the owners / hosts know by the end of December.

No ,not till later or closers to Sept. I think she said 4 to 6 week pre .but I'll have to go back and check my messages,I've kept them. My reason for setting a deadline is so that we can get our block exchage done ,I wanted to be able to give everyone plenty of time to work on them...so I'm gonna keep you listed for now. Barbara

Hi Barbara,

Sorry that I did not spot your Midwest retreat plans sooner! Would you be open to my posting an invitation in our next newsletter? I don't know how many open spaces you have left, but I think a lot of QCA members woudl be delighted by the idea of a retreat. The only catch is that the newsletter will probably post right around Jan 2nd, which is past your deadline. So if you prefer that I leave it out, that's fine too. Just let me know either way!

Liz, yes that would be fine,I did go ahead a extend the deadline,due to so many new members. Walnut Place only sleeps 12 people, so all are welcome but will have to stay in a hotel. We are not charging those that stay in hotel. for the house, they can still come everyday and sew and interact  with us. There is also a website  Where they can look  up Walnut place retreat.so they can see what a great place this is.And one of our goals is to visit the shop in Winterset. If you have any more question  please ask and I'll do my best to answer..Thanks Barbara

Dear Barbara,

Thanks so much! I will send anyone interested to this discussion to ask any questions. It I weren't moving sometime this year to Virginia I'd consider coming myself! I'm sure you will all have a wonderful time!

What - does this mean that we will lose your expertise on the QCA site????

Barbara - If I can come, it would be me and someone else as I wouldn't drive that far without a "shotgun".

Oh gracious no! I'm not giving up my QCA fun! I'm keeping my QCA work with me...in fact I hope to have a bit more time for you all after I move. My DH just took a new job in VA, but I have to wait till our house sells before I make the move. It sould be quite a year for us, but I am excited. It will be a whole new adventure!
