    In case ya'll didn't see it, Crafty Bear posted a challenge to everyone to try to get together with board members from your area:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-65408-2.htm
    Well.....RagAnn63, myself and several other KY folks have been saying "yeah...we should do that" so I thought we could start making an effort to come up with some possible dates, times, etc!! :lol: Once we get feedback, we can look at where everyone is coming from and try to come up with a centralized location. So.....here are a few dates and times....just let us know which would potentially work for you! For now I picked Saturdays so as not to interfere with work or church schedules.

    Oct. 30th
    Nov. 13th
    Dec. 18th
    Jan. 8th
    Jan. 15th
    Jan. 22nd

    Okay ladies and gentlemen....let us know ALL the dates that would work for you. You can state a prefered date but be sure and indicate ALL the days you have free to make it easier to get a date that would work for everyone.

    Thanks so much!!!!

    Thank you for the heads up Qbee. This sounds neat. Problem is I don't drive further than Paducah. I have severe anxiety when I have to travel, it nearly sends me into panic attacks. But you never know I may get too excited and do the drive anyway. I will be watching and see what everyone decides on. I would prefer after February that way I would have some money. I would probably wind up having to take little man with me, hope no one would mind that. So I will keep a watch on this thread.

    I can't do the 30th of October. It's Homecoming at the university I work at and a very busy time for me. Depending on when and where it is I can most likely do any of the other weekends.

    I agree for February due to sooo much happens with families and church families at the end of the yr. Saturdays are great for me. Keep me posted, please.

    Sounds like fun ladies but we just don't travel anymore unless one of my "kids" drive. I am in Northern KY across from Cinti and you all sound like you're further south and west.

    I would LOVE this! I am working from home right now, so I'm pretty flexible.

    I am in Eastern Ky., I wouldn't mind to drive as far at Lexington/Lousiville. Thats 3-4 hours from me,most of it on that crappy Mountain Parkway!It would be hard for me to do much more. Lexington/Louisville is pretty much in the middle of the state, right?

    I would love to try and visit some quilt stores during this, as I don't get to go places like this much.

    Sounds like your just down Rt 23 from me. Im in Ashland/Catlettsburg area. I know the Mountain PK comes out around Mt Sterling area doesnt it? Maybe we could hook up around that area and travel on to Lex/Lou together. Oh my, I'm already looking forward to this and a date hasnt even been set yet.

    I think this is a great idea,and would be fun! Oct. is a busy month for me, Nov would work, or Dec. Jan. & Feb. is the bad weather months here, and I live down in the valley,if theres snow, I can't get out. Too many mountains to climb to get out.

    Sounds like fun! I can come most any day, if it is in Lexington. I don't drive anymore and getting hubby to go any farther than here is pretty much out of the question. Of course, I would have to hook a ride around town with one of you nice ladies if we went "shopping". Darn! I wish I was still able to drive!! Keep me posted!

    Late January sound good to me if the weather hold up. I live close to Louisville, so I could go there or even to Bowling Green or Lexington. I would like to go where there are quite a few quilt shops. I like shopping for fabric!!!!. I am always interested in going to see what they have and I would love to meet up with all of you and get some tips, etc. I will be watching for what is decided.

    The weekends are best for me, I can meet just about any weekend depending upon the location of the meet. The weather for around KY can get nasty during Dec. thru Feb. I will follow the postings to see what is decided.

    Please count me in ... the sooner I know the date the better. Sounds like Lexington would be a central location, but I'm not sure how many quilt shops are in that area ... and since I don't know the area I can not say :/

    Now if you were coming to Cincy ... that would be different!

    Keep me posted and anyone in Cincy wants to car pool, let me know ... I assume this is like a day trip?

    Lexington is in the center, but Louisville is another one to two hours away from Lexington depending on how fast you drive :) I would love to go end of Jan or sometime in feb. would be good.
