    Fellow Quilter's,

    I would like to know if there is any interest in have a meet and greet for those of us on the board in or near the Houston Area. If so, let me know. If there's enough of us, let's do it! We could have a sew in, or a retreat even!

    Hope to hear from you : ) :-D

    I have a time share on Lake Conroe and a few of us get together once a month. We have not over the summer because it was so hot. If there is any interest I will be happy to offer it as a place to meet.

    I think this is a great idea for my area also...AZ. I have been wanting to attend the Houston Quilt Show for a few years now anyway. Wouldn't it be great if you had a meet and greet during the show? I understand one has to plan on attending the show a year ahead of time just to get a hotel. Anyway, it just sounds like a great time.

    I also live in Tomball, but would be happy to meet somewhere between Richmond and Tomball for lunch. Maybe we should do a lunch or dinner first to meet everyone before trying to plan a retreat together. How far from Houston is Richmond? I get all those cities mixed up around Houston :)

    And Oldfarmgirl, my Mom will be coming to the Houston show from San Antonio. We've been the past few years and stay down in a hotel from Wednesday to Sunday usually. She is on the quilt board too. (she introduced me to it). Have you met anyone from San Antonio on the board? She had lunch with a group once I know. Her board name is marjean36, you may have already met her. Marjorie Brown is her real name.

    We'd love to meet up with some of you there too. And Debby, my Tomball neighbor, let's do lunch!

    I just noticed the "quick reply" comment above where I'm typing a chapter book, haha sorry the post is so long.

I need to let you know that I am a beginner quilter...I have just worked on blocks. I go to prayers and squares at a chuch near me (not my church) and there are several people that try to teach a block class and answer questions free of charge. Anyways let me hear from you. I am located on Louetta and 249.

    Patty have you attended the Quilters Group that meets at The Red Barn twice a year. It is sponsered by the Sewing Machine Warehouse. I believe the quilters meet from Thursday thru Sunday late. I have attend once and did enjoy meeting area quilters. This group meet twice a year.

    Just throwing some locations that might work for a meet and greet. The Whistle Stop in Tomball is a good eats place in the Tomball area for a meet and greet get together. Most Denny's have a meeting room and they are everywhere. For a central location there is Niko Niko's on Montrose in Houston. They have great gyros.
    Or we could see how many of us will be at the Quilt Show and when. We could meet in the Food Court and make further plans from there.
