    Welcome to Texas! I'm @ an hour away. We've got some great shops spread out around the area & some really nice quilt shows too. Sulphur Springs has a guild & I'm not sure, but I think Mt. Pleasant does too. Keep me posted & I'll get more info for you.

    It really is a small world even in the big state of Texas. If you put your ruler on the map you will see people are just within feet from you.

    Know Mt. Pleasant very well -- my husband was born there -- but no quilting groups (sorry, just had to comment when you mentioned Mt. Pleasant!)

    Welcome home.....to Texas!

    Oh, I've been keeping an ear on that area. Seems so nice. Hope all goes well on your move "back home". That is a feeling that is giving me goosebumps! Gotta LOVE Texas!

    I have family next door in Pittsburg. It's a nice area. They do most of their shopping in Mt Pleasant since Pittsburg is pretty small. Good food at Catfish King!

    I've been to Sulphur Springs. Cute area. Went there when daughter had cancer and was being treated at Huston.

    I live in Elkhart, Tx but use to live in Clarksville so I know where Mt Pleasant is. DH works up there quite often. I know there is a group in Paris but not sure if that is too far for you to go. Lots of quilt shops in East Texas. Welcome back home. Wouldn't live anywhere else.

    MYWR, I live in Ark. but shop in Texarkana and we have a son and friends in the DFW area, so we're very familiar with Mt. Pleasant. So happy for you to be moving home. It seems like Mt. P would be a good location with Canton just south of you and Dallas close enough to shop in and they have quilt shows.

    Yes Lizzie there is. We meet at the senior center every Tuesday from 9 to 3. We are called the Tuesday Stitchers. Most of us quilt but some crochet and do other crafts. There is also a quilt guild in Crockett. I think it meets 2nd Tuesday nite of each month. If you read this in time, come by tomorrow. Be glad to meet you. We are all very friendly, loving , caring bunch.
