    I am visiting the New Orleans , La area and have met up with a great gal named "sweet" or Sue from the board. she took me to 3 diffetent quilt shops , lunch on the river, lighthouse, allegator hunt, and antiques shops. what a great time I had. Sue makes a great tour guide. She is such a nice person and I hope that I have made a new lifelong friend. The shops down here have different material than in Ohio and staff is very friendly and helpful. I bought fabric for 2 quilts, Christmas wall hanging, Mardi Gras wallhanging, and 3 other wallhangings. I learned quilting tips and info about the southern customs. Thanks SOOOO much "sweet" Sue you are GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now we all know where to plan our trips for and who to contact! She'll be so busy being a tour guide that she'll have to give up quilting! LOL

    Sounds like you had a great time. It's a shame we can't all get together somewhere for a weekend retreat. Wouldn't that be a hoot? We'd need a stadium or huge convention center. Let's see, Admin could sponsor it, making it free to all "a regular here" members, of course it would be catered, hourly drawings for door prizes, free seminars by Ricky Tims, Carol Doak, and many others.......Okay, let's make it a two weekends one week thing---9 days. Yeah, I like it....
