    The NW Quilt Expo is coming Sept. 23-25. Anyone planning to go? I'll be there on Saturday (25th). Would love to get together for a cup of coffee.

    Yes, too bad you're so far away. I was in TX earlier this summer. I have family there, but I couldn't live there - too hot for me!

    I am planing on going - thinking of taking the OBW class on the 23rd and maybe another class on 24th or 25th - haven't decided yet.

    I hope to go.... Just know it would be great fun. I am going to a doll show in Portland this Saturday. Antique dolls are my one weakness...

    I'm taking the "Thread Therapy" class on Saturday, 12:30-2:15. I'd hoped to treat myself to the box lunch lecture, but the time conflicts with the class. I don't know much about thread, so I'm sure the class will be very useful.

    I didn't realize this was going on. Thanks for mentioning it. I'll see if there is any way I could manage to come. Have you been before? Would you say it was worth it? Do you have a link for information? Thanks very much!

    i'm thinking of going. I want to see the Superior Thread demo at 12:30pm. Seems like things keep coming up that fill my calendar up, but unless it's an emergency, I'm going.

    I'll be there on Friday 9-1 as a volunteer. I will probably either be selling raffle tickets for our guild or a white glove lady. If you are willing to volunteer 4 hours you get free admission and a very up-close view of the quilts!

    Here's the website:

    You would love it. INCREDIBLE quilt show, good classes, and of course lots of vendor booths. It's my little get-away each year.

    The hours are 9am-5pm on Saturday. Want to meet up around 10:30? Or would mid-afternoon be better . . . maybe 2:30ish?

    Thanks for the link! It does look wonderful. It may be worth a drive up from Southern Oregon even for just one day. I'm working on it!

    I'll know this Friday if I will be able to be there. It looks like a few of us will be there: "Sew Cornie" "Shuterl" "BrendaY" and O2ba quilter".

    If I can go I'm all for meeting up. Can we set up a time and exact place to meet at the eating area there?

    Sounds good to me. My only obligation is the Threads class (12:30-2:15). How about meeting 11:00? Or if afternoon is better . . . 2:30?

    This thread has been buried for a while. Let's see if we can drum up any extra interest here.

    A couple of us are planning to meet for coffee this Saturday morning in the eating area of the expo hall. We've suggested a time of 10:30-11:00am to meet, but ought to narrow that down in the next day or two. We'd love to have more board members come join us!

    If you haven't been before, the Expo is so great! Dozens and dozens of vendors and an incredible jaw-dropping display of quilts. My DH printed out a $2 off admission coupon on K103's website. You may want to check it out if you haven't pre-purchased your ticket already.

    I would love to meet up in the morning. Has anyone decided where and what time? Count me in!

    For all of you who are thinking about going - don't miss it! It is a wonderful show with lots of new things and beautiful quilts. It is well worth it. A wonderful get away day!

    This class is sooo good!! Dr. Bob is funny, and informative. He'll also give you a new use for water soluble thread. Have fun!!

    You'll be missed, but boy did you luck out with the weather forecast! Good weekend to take advantage of that. Enjoy your time with your grandson!
