    Not close, but not sooo far. My grandma's first teaching job was in Whitewater, during the Depression!

    I am not so far either. I live in IL but about an hour from Janesville. Hubby went to Whitewater for his teaching degree.

    You probably are already familiar with this, but it's worth a try :D

    There's a wonderful quilt shop in Beloit (not far, right?). Maybe they have classes--it's a great way to meet other quilters.

    I miss the Beloit shop soooo much. My friend's daughter attended college there, and we would visit the shop every time we could! The daughter is now back in MI and we're just dying to find a way to go back :lol:

    I know Pardeeville--Aunt was in nursing home for years. I am in Deforest twice a month visiting my Mom. I also have a sister-in-law (who quilts also) who lives on the Wisconsin River outside Portage. She comes this way a lot--loves all the quilt stores we have around here. I'm up for a meet sometime soon. Earlier in the week is better for me--how about you?

    Freeport, that's near Orangeville! Just found that shop last month. Janesville is a nice middle ground. That shop is not my style but I would love to get together. I have never been to the Beloit one. Then there is one in Elkhorn and of course my favorite is Waunakee.

    Hi, I live about 30 miles south of Whitewater, between East Troy and Waterford. Haven't been to Whitewater in a long time. I could meet you sometime. Isn't there a LQS in Whitewater? I Know there is one in Elkhorn.

    If you like Waunakee you will also really like Loose Threads in Milton. It has friendly people, loads of batiks, flannels, and lots of inspiration all over the walls. It's about 15 minutes off of I-90 or about that far from Janesville.

    I know Mukwanago--used to go to that sale on stationary they had there. It's not that far from here. Just jump on 43--head toward Beloit and you're here in about 25 minutes. It would be fun to meet up somewhere.

    Live south of Rockford in IL, but not too far away. Used to go through Pardeeville every summer on our way to the lake where we vacationed.

    Would love to get together! Janesville has one that has lots of Civil War, and dark prints, some 30s. They also have a JoAnns, and a Hobby Lobby. Milton, has the nice one, Loose Threads. WHitewater has one that is small, but really nice. Then theres a shop by Fort Atkinson that has a lot of 30s, baby, batiks.......lots of nice places for lunch too!

    I have a brother and sister-in-law that live in Jefferson, WI. We usually visit them once or twice a year. Have you been to the cute little quilt shop in Jefferson? Actually, there are a lot of cute quilt shops around there....lucky you!!!

    I live in Stoughton, WI. We have a great quilt shop called Saving Tyme. It takes me about 30 minutes to get to Janesville on I 90. Would love to meet some other quilters. I pretty new though so don't expect alot of great designs coming from me!
