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

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.
