    I am in when you have a date set. Hopefully it will work out that Keith can watch the kids. I am (you already know this, mema) in the smack dab middle of the state.

    If you meet in Independence, MO I am all for it. I live in Blue Springs and could make it. As long as you guys don't mind me bringing my two kids. Getting a babysitter is hard and I can't be away from my son for more than an hour because of Breast feeding and He has mommy itis. I have a perfect location for us to meet if you want to meet near 70 Hwy in Independence. We can even bring our machines and sew on those white plastic tables if we wanted to. My church owns some grounds that have a large conference center that would be great. Plus it is near food. I would just have to check the dates. On Mondays we have a mommy play group that meets there in the morning.

    If you meet in Indep MO, is KS invited? I live about 50 miles from Indep. Depending on the date, I would enjoy meeting and getting ideas. Still timid about sewing around anyone else.

    I don't blame you. I am scared to death of going to a local quilting group. Have one at a senior center by my house. The senior center people can be quite mean to those who are not white or almost white-gray haired people. Had one lady tell me that I wasn't supposed to be there using the bathroom because I was under 50. This with having my DD who was 1 1/2 at the time.

    I live in Hannibal (the NE corner of Missouri) but I retire in 3 more weeks, so traveling won't be too much of an issue. I've got a friend in St. Joe, so might make a trip to the western edge of MO for a quilting/visiting adventure. I'll keep watching the board.

    BTW, my quilt guild is very inviting. Either that, or I just didn't pay any attention when I joined in September. haha.

    We should pick a date so we can all make arrangements. and also decide where we want to meet for lunch. also should have a list to sing up for this. that way we can forewarn where ever we go.

    I am up for either dates. The ones in the Independence area really close to I 70. well kind of. Memathomas, I am having a hard time reading your post. not sure if it is because of lack of sleep or what. Have we chosen a city yet? Where ever we meet we should make sure that we keep it close to the hwy. Just for convenience and simplicity. I don't know about anyone else but I have trouble with directions. if we are going to Independence the two shops that are close are the quilting station and another one that is on 40 hwy, I can't remeber the name at the moment. Quilters Station is a good size and the other is a small one, but has a lot of fabric. Anyone else in the area know of any others? I am always looking for new places to check the stashes.

    I vote for Mexico and can fit 5 in my minivan.
    We could meet in Kingdom City (right on I-70) and car pool from there to Mexico.

    I vote for Independence, but that is because i can't drive more than 45 min in any direction. went to the campus of CMSU in Warrensburg and wanted to shoot myself. the kids cried all the way there and back. But if you guys hit somewhere else I will have to wait for the next trip out. depending on how far away it is.

    we have been looking at the map and decided that we should do lunch in independence this time and we can plan for the next time because we will need two people that are willing to drive the shop hop. i have my husband talked into it but we need one more, and from concordia to mexico via columbia and kingdom city would be about 200 miles round trip that a lot
    so what do u think shall we meet this time and shop hop the next time we can meet on the 22nd if thats ok.
