    Any Quilter's From Michigan

    I was wondering if anyone from Michigan has ever went to the quilter's retreat at Boyne Highlands Resort?

    We have a VERY small group of quilters ( 3 of us) who meet in my home once a week. We would like to add more members if anyone is interested in joining us. No dues, no commitments, just lots of show and tell and good company to enjoy. I am actually thinking of advertising in the local paper to see if I can drum up some interest, but am somewhat hesitant to publish an e-mail address in the local paper.
    Anyone out there live near Muskegon or Grand Haven, MI?

    I am a Kalamazoo/Portage gal. I know that there must be come Muskegon quilters because their are several interesting quilt shops and a quilt show in Holland during the Coast Guard Festival. Keep searching!

    I'll be watching to see in anyone in between signs in. I'm currently in the Metro Detroit area, but soon moving back to Grand Rapids and it would be nice to connect with people in the area.

    My dad used to live in Spring Lake. Only got to visit them once there. Loved the place and as always, he had a garden to die for.

    Last time I was at Boyne in the summer we did the zip line course. Wonder if they give a discount for quilting "zippers"! I'm from the thumb area looking to connect with other area longarm quilters. Anyone near me?
