I really like the idea of carpooling. I'm also in the area, in the town of Waterford, about 8 miles to Mukwonago from my house. Was born and raised in Burlington,WI.Hope to meet you all real soon! :)

I would like to meet in the Milton/Janesville area for the first meeting as it seems that that is the center area of the group.

Sooooo, have we come to a decision yet? I at least know where Janesville is and would like to go there and visit the quilt shop and then have a nice luncheon with everyone. Is there a nice restaurant in the area where all of us could sit in a section to visit?

There is a super nice little cafe that Dottie and I were thinking. I know she had guests this past weekend, so maybe she will pop in soon and we can set something up!
This will be so fun!And I cant wait!
Hey, does anyone know of a local quilt shop with small amounts of colored wool? I want to make some needle cases for gifts and dont want yards, just to be able to buy small peices....I wonder if anyone sells it like that?

I am so looking forward to meeting everyone.....

Sorry, I don't know of any place that sells small amounts of wool, although I will ask my friend, who has so much material she could open her own store....if she has any wool and will let you know.

I'm back. The guests are gone, the sheets are washed and I am raring to go. How about we meet at the Milton coffee shop one week from tomorrow. I will send the address so that you can GPS it or give you directions. There is enough room so that we can all congregate, have coffee or lunch and go the three minute drive to what I think is one of the best quilt shops in Wisconsin--Loose Threads. For those who can't do mid- week, I can also do this on a Saturday. Let me know your preference. Looking forward to meeting fellow quilters--it's always good to hang around with your own kind!
