Michelle:
do you know if the hotel has washer/dryer?

Michelle, did you see pictures of the retreat last year?   One picture was of a pair of panties lying on the hallway floor - embarrassing for the owner of said panties who quickly posted that it was her DH's fault - she had sent him to do the laundry.  That's my long way of answering your question - Yes, there is a paid laundry facility within the complex.  Be careful who you send to do your wash!  LOL

Mary T:
I'm bringing lots of projects with me, I usually get a lot done @ retreats.

Argghh, the pressure!  

Deep breath...calm down.... Mary, I'm bringing only 3 projects and I'll feel lucky to finish one!  I am not going to rush to keep up with the over-achievers this time!  Maybe I'll have fewer mistakes for a change.  LOL

But yes, I am getting very excited!  Last night I dreamed we were all arriving and rolling our stuff into the sewing room.

Mary T - I am so ready. Just got my "gift together today.  I have two big projects and some small ones I'm bringing. Now just trying to decide when to leave in order to do the drive by myself.

I am getting excited, too.  Really need it after the last five weeks at work.  I'm bringing 5 tops to quilt and the fall HSTs to put together.  

also, excited in that we're meeting up with DH's cousin and his wife for dinner one nite so that should be exciting.  they'll be down at the Suites at the Falls and we haven't seen them in about 10 years or more.

Want to ask a quick question.  I have a GO cutter and several dies.  Would anyone like to try it out?  Should I bring it along?  I'm driving hubby's van and have plenty of room. .

The other day I discovered that Ackfield Wire is located about 30 minutes from Branson in Reeds Spring.  I emailed them to find out if they were a brick and mortar store and received this response,

Good Morning,

We do not have a store front.  We are a manufacturing plant but we would love to have you visit.  Please let me know when you will be arriving and the name of the Retreat..

 Have a Great Day,

 Marie Woodruff

Ackfeld Mfg.

Would anyone be interested?  Has a specific day been planned yet to shop hop up there?  I'll take a head count and let her know!

they told me this afternoon that they will give us a tour of the facility and we can make purchases there. We can also place orders if something is not in stock. If you can read this but cannot get in to respond please email me if you're interested in going. Debbiequilts@sbcglobal.net

I also need to let them know what day we will be coming either Tuesday or Wednesday. What do you think?

Michelle:

Maggie, I'm excited to meet my SS pal! 

Nana, do you know if the hotel has washer/dryer? I don't want to pack too any clothes. Would rather wash them and have room for projects and all these quilt shops we are going to. 

Ditto---almost time!!!
