MNnancy:

I'm planning to go to Ackfeld Wire but am not interested in making a full day of it.  I'm shop-hopping on the drive down, and then I'll want to go to Quilts & Quilts in Branson at some point.  It's a very big shop!

With so many of you coming in Saturday night, I have a request...  Terri and I won't be in until mid-afternoon Sunday.  Can you please keep a table open for the two of us to sit/work together?  Also, I use a small table for my machine which I set at a 90-degree angle to the regular tables.  Give me a spot where my small table won't interrupt the flow of traffic around the room.  Thanks!

Nancy, Sharon and I plan to do the same, Akfeld and shop in Branson. We would also like to sit together so if someone could set aside two seats for tall people 😊 it would be greatly appreciated.  We won't be in until mid-afternoon Sunday because Sharon can't leave Springfield Illinois until 7 am. She promised her DH she would give Indy, her German Shepard, his medicine before she left. 

Im a last minute packer but Sharon has been packing for a week. We are really excited to be coming to Branson and I can hardly wait to meet everyone!  I'm only bringing a couple of projects because I have a tendency to be a social butterfly instead of a productive quilter. But I'm willing to give the productive quilter a try. We are bringing Sharon's car because she said my SMART car wouldn't even hold her stuff let alone both of our stuff. I'm shocked!  LOL 

see you all soon!

Ladies - weather update

thought I would check and see what the weather was going to be next week in Branson - well, tonight they have added 60% chance of snow for next Friday.  rest of week is predicted to be in the 40s so will be a little  chilly.

Sam, if you're reading this, I think we put you in charge of the weather arrangements.  Now you might want to go skiing in Branson, but the rest of us don't.  Could you arrange for something warmer and dryer for the week???

Oh, we are suppose to pack clothes???  Guess I had better think about that.  I do have my projects and tools ready.  Can't wait to get there and meet everyone.

Maggie - we are going to be traveling the same route!  I will PM you with my cell number.  I will leave Channahon about 5:00 and will be near Springfield around 7:00.

I'm all packed except for last minute items.  I will load the truck today so I can do a walk through tomorrow to see what I've left out. 

I do have a favour to ask.  Would some kind person who will be there either Saturday night or early Sunday be willing to share your phone number with me?  I'd feel better being able to contact someone in the group just in case something goes wrong on the way.  This is the first time in over 30 years that I've driven this distance alone.  I know I can call the hotel, but since I don't know anyone's last name, it would be difficult to get a message to you.  You can PM me (no need to ask to be friends first - I set my account up so folks can PM without that).  Thank you very much.

Oh dear.  That means I have to find some closed-in shoes to wear.  I'm a sandals and socks person.  I know I have a pair hiding somewhere in my closet....

Looking forward to visiting with you again, Michelle!   I really enjoyed your visit to KC.    Let's hope the weather lets us get to Branson without any trouble and clears miraculously right before we have to leave.  I don't mind snow while I'm sewing.  ha!!
