    I just checked and it would be an 18 hr drive from southern Pennsylvania. I'll have to do some serious thinking about this. I would have to figure out someone to watch the kids while hubby works, too. Or keep them while me and hubby drive to KS.

    Anyone else from the northern east coast going?

    I'm kinda close to HMK on the West Coast.... I better go look at a map a little closer, but I'm pretty sure, as exciting as this sounds, that it's a little too far for me at the moment. 2010 BC is hosting the Olympic Games, not that it will affect me personally too much, but if you're thinking of doing a West Coast Retreat .... you may have to figure in the rise in costs that seem to happen when the games arrive in any given area.

    Hmmm.... just looked at the map, guess I'd better wait until you plan a West Coast one.... BUT..... I really really hope you can pull this one together, as it just sounds like such a wonderful opportunity & a great price as well. I have been to quite a few retreats, usually for the weekend... our guild one here in Canada costs $275 we arrive at 4 pm Fri and leave at 2 pm Sunday and there is no scheduled classes, just do your own thing.

    I sew want to go!!! I am more afraid of not knowing anyone. I mean I love everyone on here, but I get shy in real life!! Anyone else like that??

    I am seriously thinking of this though. I will give an answer in the next little while.

    Quilting Turtle, your shyness wouldn't last long around such a great bunch of people...trust me. I'm usually shy, also, but when I met Judy, I felt so comfortable with her, you would have thought we had known each other for a long time!!! So, come on over, if you can and have a great time.

    I used to be a very shy person, so I know of what you speak.

    And, I am going to try to encourage you to come ahead. This is a small venue and a lot of the activities are on a one on one basis...and dinner is at regular dining room tables with just 4-6 people at a table.. very easy to get around. And I will have some helpers along with the Inn Keeper to attend to your every need.

    Keep in touch with me as you make plans. We will try to coordinate rides so that you can share a ride from Wichita to Stafford.

    Not in the mood for a LOOOOONG road trip??
    Did you check flights to Kansas City, Or Oklahoma? You could rent a car from there and drive about 3 hours...
    I know, a long trip, but we are worth it!! :wink:

    You lucky people, enjoy the retreat. And remember to keep those of us who will be with you in spirit in mind. Keep us "posted" on everthing that you do. And remember pictures, pictures, pictures.

    OK, I have updated the dates and the dates that the deposit is required
    Please check that over before you make your decisions.

    This is an evolving plan as I learn more about the B&B requirements

    I would love to come. I am little worried about being in a group of ladies, I haven't met before, I haven't ever done this type of thing before. Its time to get out of the comfort zone, I am going to be coming. Once I send payment there will be no backing out.

    Thank you for organizing this, I know it takes tons of time and energy!! :D

    I do need to know where to schedule the flight to.

    The closest airport is Wichita, Kansas.

    Go ahead and check out the flights, but dont commit to anything until you hear from me that all the stars have alligned.

    The reason is that the plans are still preliminary.. and we have not reached the minimum number ...I will keep you posted

    JStitch I am glad to see we have more time to decide. I too have to see if the stars align from my side (money and time off work) in order to go!

    You are doing a fabulous job!! I hope you get enough people to go!

    It sounds like a great time. I don't think I can get that week off of work, I missed 3 1/2 mos of work this spring and summer because of surgery and have a couple things going on in June and July next year. Maybe sometime in the future we can have one on this side of the Rockies

    I'm really bummed. I really wanted to attend because it is only about a 4.5 hour drive for me but I already have plans to be in Jamaica that week. I hope everyone has a blast. I'll be thinking of you all.

    Count me in. My only problem is you are only allowed one check in bag flying out of Key West because of the short runway. Will the B and B let me ship a box to them to arrive a day or so before I get there? I'll have to come without a sewing machine. I'm afraid to ship it.
