I've never been to one but am familiar with Norfolk/Va Bch area (still have friends there, too!) This would be fun. Can you add me to the list as a tentative? Catching a ride with someone else would be easy if anyone is coming from the midwest (I'm not too far off I-70 in central Ohio).

Nana, room for one more?  Would love to meet the SE & NE quilters!

Do you know if the house has a large room to set up as a sewing area, or will we be scattered through the house?

We definitely have room for one more.  The houses I am looking at have huge open areas with the dining and "seating" area.  The dining room table could handle about 10 people and there is plenty of room to set up additional tables to where we can all sew in the same room.

Duh -- Sukochi, I would be using I85 to get to Virginia not I75.  Would this pose a problem?

It looks like I have 10 definites so far.  We really need to decide who is going in the next few weeks.  I will have to get part of the rental fee from each of you to make a deposit on a house.   I am planning to make the deposit mid November.   Please everyone decide and let me know.  For some of the rental facilities they need half at time of reservation and the remainder about a month before our arrival.    That would mean that I need $100 from each participant by mid November.  Thanks.

I will let everyone know exactly when and give addresses.  I know this retreat seems very rushed but we only have about 5 months to get everything together instead of the year that the past retreats have had.   I think we will all have a great time though.

Everyone....

One of the biggest reasons for the rush on number of people is that I have to reserve the house.   I don't want to reserve a house for 16 to 20 people and then only have 10 or 12.  The additional expense would then have to come out of my pocket and I can't afford an extra $1000 or so.   I hope that this doesn't offend anyone and that each of you can make definite plans early.  

If anyone pays a deposit and then for some reason can't come I will do my best to find someone to take your spot so that your money could be reimbursed.

Nana, 

 I am interested in Virginia Beach if I can find someone to ride with or ride with me. I live 25 mins north of TN/GA line at I-75. ( I live off exit 27). The price is good and I would like to spend day in Williamsburg if weather is warm enough. And would love to go to quilt store even if it is cold!

Any chance I could ride with you and Sukochi? I can meet you both. I live 25 mins north of TN/GA line in Cleveland TN. I will get ride south to meet you. And I will pay towards gas and whatever $ you need towards the ride. I have never been to a retreat but I imagine it will be lots of fun.

Let me know as I will have to find someone to ride with or ride with me as I am not able to drive that far alone any more. I have  a Honda Odyessey mini-van.

Thanks, Nancy

I am having a brain fart this morning because I can't visualize where you are.  I live right outside of Roanoke, VA just off of I 81.

I know that you understand and I am grateful.  I will send you my address soon.  I just want to make sure that everyone else understands the situation.   It is a little scary putting my name on a week's lease when I am not sure how many are really going to send money.....LOL>
