Does Saturday sound good to all of you?  They are showing from 9 to 5 on Saturday.

Also if there is anyone wanting to come in on Friday I would be happy to share a hotel room.  I know Kris is planning on coming in at least by Saturday and sharing a room.   If we get a room with 2 beds we can share with a couple more if you would like.

Wish I could offer lodging, but my sister doesn't have enough room!

That is perfectly ok.   It isn't exactly appropriate to offer out someone elses house for lodging anyway.   I was planning on a hotel at least for one night each way.  I will just figure on an extra day or two.   Not a problem.

Of course!  If I thought it was even a possibility, I would have checked with her before mentioning it!

With where I live, I have rarely had the opportunity to go to a quilt show so I am really looking forward to this!  And DH can keep busy visiting with DBIL and friends...lol!

I guess it could be one long hard day to drive to Beachcomber's for me.  About 467 miles, almost 9 hours.  I could do it, specially if I had someone to keep me awake during the drive.  I really don't like driving in Portland either.  They have a good transit system, but it is awful driving.  Hmmm.  There are lots of hotels near the airport, and very good transit into town.  I could do that, sharing a room with someone.  Arriving Friday.  Quilt show Saturday.  Arrive Beachcomber's Sunday.  Oh, but then there is that fabric store in Portland, Fabric Depot, which has 1.7 acres of fabric.  https://www.fabricdepot.com .         I have always wanted to go there.   ( I don't know why this is in italics, I can't seem to turn it off.  oh well.)

I am considering coming into Portland on Thursday.  I just may have to find this Fabric Depot place.   If you are interested in sharing a room just let me know.

They do have some big shows out here but none are really close to me.  This would just give me a great opportunity since I am coming there anyway.  Just thought it would probably be worth adding a couple of days to the trip and enjoy the show and maybe some of the things Portland has to offer.  Since I am flying out I may as well get all the bang I can for my buck....LOL>

Fabric Depot is between the Portland Airport and the Convention Center and not too far from the I-205 Portland by-pass (which passes by the airport).

Be prepared...I mean really, really prepared...with your checkbook, VISA, MC, AMEX, cash, last born child, etc.  This is the store of stores for the fabricoholic!  Anything, and everything you could every want you can find there.  And their batik section is absolutely HUGE!  (Now, I am thinking I will have to drive down on Thursday to do this on Friday.  DH found a Model Railroad shop a few blocks away from this store, so it keeps him happy while I am there.)  Last time I was there, the clerk cutting my fabric told me that many times friends come in together, spend the morning in one half of the store, go to lunch, and come back in the afternoon to shop the other half...NO KIDDING!

That sounds like a lot of fun.   Do Fabric Depot on Friday and then check out the quilt show on Sat.   We will have so much inspiration bumping around in our heads that we will either be sewing like mad women or sitting quietly starring into space....LOL>

Wow.  I don't know if I dare go to Fabric Depot.  I'm on a budget this year.  And my spending is already into the third month.

Well guess it looks like we're going a couple days early also. Poor George said "tell me why again". Says I "well I want to visit my sister". Good reason, yes?  So her and I will take in the quilt show and fabric store. I'm sure we will run into you guys. 


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
