    Don't know what the plans are for when we leave here. I do know that we will be taking a full 30 days of traveling. Will have to wait until we get settled where ever we are going and find out if hubby will be still going to sea or be on shore duty. Once we leave here, this will be his last tour to give him 30 years.
    Don't forget part of your 30 day travel trip is to here ducky!
    Oh, I think the trip to you will be a seperate trip. That way, I'm not on a time constraint! :)

    Do we have enough people for this? I was going to send my check but wanted to see if it was a 'go' or not first.

    Sorry, don't mean to hijack...
    Elle - DD & DH went to Spain last year as part of a school trip. They LOVED it. DD hopes to go back someday. As I wasn't going, the only thing I wanted them to bring back was fabric. Wow, who knew it was so hard to find?? A friend & fellow quilter also went, she did find a bit & brought me a small pkg - but laughed that it was probably from the States anyhow!

    Yes, your friends must have had a job to find the material shops, they are few and far between, unless of course you go to the big cities. Out here in the sticks it costs 14 Euros a metre thats 17.4713 US Dollars.

    Now you know why I get nearly all my fabric from the web, I can buy nice fabric for 4 or 5 Dollars and pay shipping and its still cheaper by far.

    Just been exchanging the price of gas for the car and we are paying 1.08 Euros per litre that works out at 6.21 US Dollars. So those kind of things are expensive, I think everything else is fairly cheap, Cheaper than the UK that is for sure.

    Ouch, that'd really put a dent in my stash! Actually, maybe that'd be good... It's taking over... I live near Mennonite shops, where we get LQS fabrics for $5 - $6 per yard. Not exactly LQS setting, though. Very kind, but very basic.

    Truly wish this retreat was a possibility. One that the friend I mentioned previously and I have gone to for several years isn't working out this year. Unfortunately, flights from upstate NY to Kansas make it prohibitive.

    There seem to be a lot of northeasterners... Maybe somebody will get another up for this part of the country.

    I'll be joining the jealous ladies following the fun on-line.

    Me to, I will be following this thread and am really looking forward to all the pictures. It will be fun, I know there is a quilt retreat in Spain, not sure where, perhaps I should look into that and then you could all think about coming here instead in a couple of years.

    I would love to come but since I already do 2 quilt retreats each year and also have 2 family reunions in the summer of '09 and the kids home from school for the summer, it just would not work for me to come...HAVE A GREAT TIME!!!

    About two hours west, in the Finger Lakes. Much of the area has been farmed for generations by families who are finding it more and more difficult to make a go of it. In the last 20 years or so, many Mennonites have moved to the area, buying up farms as they have gone to auction. We now have several Mennonite churches and schools in the area, as well as stores.

    Gosh darnit... June? I'm looking at a potential Star Trek shoot around that time. Schedule hasn't been released yet, but by the looks of it from previous shoots, the two would conflict.

    I'll be looking forward to pictures of the event, though! :) Lots and lots of pictures!

    It looks as though I am going to have to decline from this retreat. It seems we were discussing our trip for next year, and we both really want to go to Europe. We are seriously talking about France, and of course Paris. This could be a real trip of a lifetime. We are also looking to go to Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Seems I won't be attending any retreats for a while. I am so sorry. It would have been fun, but I can't pass up an opportunity to see France.

    I will think of you all while you are enjoying your retreat. One of these days I will go on a retreat. But for now I need to start brushing up on my French...

    :(

    How lovely is that you going to France though. But I can understand your disappointment, it would be lovely to meet everyone on the board.

    You are not far away from Spain you know......... :wink: :wink:

    Since we have had little response in the way of actual commitment, I am going to re-plan this event.

    It will be on a first come first served basis.. In other words, there will be a limited number of participants and I will admit you based on the receipt of your reservation deposit.

    To secure your spot, please mail $35 to me at


    ***Edited by Patrice: sorry ... but we strongly discourage members from posting their personal addresses, eddresses and phone info in public. All who are interested should send jstitch a PM asking for her address.****
