    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....

    Bigsis makes a great tour guide in Ohio, too! Wish I had more time when I was there - but I'll be back! It is such fun meeting board members! Let's see, I will be in Baton Rouge in 2012 - that's close to New Orleans!!!

    I haven't met anyone from the quilt board, but almost met Quilting Nonie, as she was in Florence. But, didn't know she was there.

    Glad you had a great time, and in such a wonderful place as New Orleans.

    Sure if I can figure out how to post pictures. I sent 13.5 lbs of fabric thru USP so I would not have to carry it on the airplane. Weather down here is to be 70 today/Sat but cooler Sun-Wed next week. I do not want to go back up north since it is to be about 20 next week with more snow! BRRRRRR!

    I would love to hear about any quilt seminars, workshops, etc. in the Michigan, Ohio, Illinois area. Does anyone know of any. My quilt group is wanting to do a workshop.

    My daughter lives outside of New Orleans. I have been there many times but mostly went to the antique shops and site seeing. I wasn't quilting at the time. So I told her when I come to visit she needs to look up quilt shops. It should be fun.
