Gee, all of us gals in the midwest,maybe we need to have a get-together? Their doing it on the east coast and their doing it on the west coast, and us gals in the middle ..well just an idea... Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Barbara, that sounds like a good plan to me. Maybe we should discuss it. I know Althea is in Oklahoma, I am in Kansas, just 60 miles from KC. Is it Leslie that is in Southern MO? There is a lovely place in Manhatten KS that has a retreat center right next to a quilt shop. It holds about 12 people. There are probably other places we could go.
Elaine, I would really love to do this , Quess we should see how many of us would be intrested before we make to many decisions. but Manhattan sounds like it might be a good central location. I've never done anything like this before,and not really even sure how to go about it .So maybe we can all come up with a plan. So stay in touch..Barbara
Elaine, forgot to mention I'm In Liberty Mo, just alittle NE of KC. Barbara
Barbara I think I'm just about 31/2 or 4 hours south of you.
I'm in Iowa, might be interested in a get-together if it's not too far away.
I am IN IN IN - count me IN IN IN !!! I think there are quite a few of us Mid-western Gals... and it would be so much fun! We could schedule it around one of the shop hops and go hopping together...or one of the many retreat areas around here... ooooh I am IN IN IN!!!
Thea ,Cj,and Leslie, Elanie mentioned a place in Kansas, that might work ,but lets all try and think of a central location that will meet our needs. Please I want everyone to have a say in this<all help would be appericated ,thinks like where ,#of days ,lot of us have to work so maybe a weekend would work. Just throw in idea and see what we come up with. Also do we want to do this before the holidays or after, there will be alot going on with families and we don't want anyone stressed about missing family functions ..If we work together on this I think we can get it done and have a really good time...Barbara
Yippee the Midwest! I'm in Michigan so Kansas is do-able but a little far. (not whining). Could I suggest Paducah, Kentucky? I've heard it is a quilters haven. I've always wanted to go there but never have. According to Google Earth, there is a motel (major brand but I can't remember) right next door to Hancock's of Paducah Quilt Shop. Just a suggestion.
PD, thanks for the suggestion ,thats 2 ideas , There is also the muesum in Lincoln Neb,that may be a possibility, just trying to get idea right now ...Barbara
there is also suppose to be a muesum in Branson,Mo that might be a good place for us all to meet. Again just an idea , keep them coming and we'll all decide together...Barbara
Barbara, Branson also has a large quilt shop, Iv'e been to a couple of times, I'm sure there is probably more. I would like to wait until after the new year.
Leslie,I knew there were some down there, and this is the kind of info we need. You are the first so far to give input on a time frame. I am keeping a list so I can write down everyones wishes. I will keep you posted and of course there is this post.. Please feel free to add any input that will be helpful ,I really think this should be a group effort...Barbara
sam has a business in branson, if i had enough advanced notice, sam and i might be able to co-ordinate a trip there. gini
gini in north idaho
Gini , hopefully we can do that , everything is still in the planning stage, AT this time no spot has been picked yet , but will keep you posted on what everyone wants to do . I think this will be great for all of us here in the midwest. We have had some good suggestion so far .Barbara
