    Are there any snowbirds on here that are in Yuma for the winter? We arrived last week and are loving the warm weather. Much better than snow at home.

    I want to be a snowbird!!! Sorry, I am in Ohio, not in Yuma. It is still nice here now, but I know the cold is coming.

    Was going to Apache Junction during the winter. I wanted to stay home and enjoy my sewing room this year... Maybe next year, we'll see. Enjoy Az and I will enjoy my sewing room.

    baubo1234 Have you discovered any quilting shops in Yuma. We will be in Yuma around Christmas and I could always use a fabric fix.

    We are in Bonita Mesa r.v. resort on N . Frontage Rd. We have a quilting group here, but I haven't gone yet. They meet on Tuesday afternoons.
    Where are you? Are you here for the winter? We will be here until mid April.

    HI BAUBO1234,
    We are here on a private lot off Foothills Blvd. We will be here till April. Does your RV Park allow non members (me) to join their quilting group.Which Walmart has fabric, I have been to the one on Pacfic. I know of 3 Walmarts, someone told me there are 4.Did you see the fabric store in by where The Brown Burger used to be.

    We are former snowbirds & spent quite a few winters in Az,Ca,Nv,Tx & Fl.Enjoyed most places,but also saw some bad....cold...weather.

    When we both needed dental/med work, I said I'd seen all the strange Drs/dentists I ever planned to see :-).Has worked out fine.I love winter days when the fire is going & I can sew to hearts content.I have my sewing room & DH has his shop.Maybe it's just old age talking :-)

    Hi, I am not sure if they allow non members , but I will ask. The one on Pacific is the one with lots of fabric, the other ones are on San Luis Rd., at the very end of 32nd St going west, turn right and there is one on the right at 26th. There is one on Main st. but I haven't been to that one yet. and there is the one on 32nd st. just off 8E ave. in this end of town. I don't know which one was where the brown burger used to be. this is our first year down here.
