    Just saw this thread, will definitely try to come.

    Anyone in the Albany/Salem area want to carpool? We can meet at a central location and share the drive (and maybe stop in at a quilt store or two on the way home?)

    I am definitely a techni - if you have not been able to do this let me know and I'll give it a shot.

    Okay, here's the current scoop on groups. I went to the groups section and there was no information on what they do or how to start one. Went to the help section and found an old closed thread where PatriceJ says that at the present time groups are basically useless and they are exploring options on how to fix that. So I sent Patrice a pm asking for the current status. I'll keep you up to date, but as of right now the groups idea isn't going anywhere.

    I would love to carpool esp. if someone else drives!I would be willing to pay gas.I drive 50-80 miles a day so anytime I can not drive is a good day!

    I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone! Faith helped me get a jump start yesterday on organizing my sewing room! My fabric is all folded and organized by color and quantity. I've left the doors off of the cabinets for now because I just want to admire my stash! Now to sort the scraps the same way! My husband actually made the comment that now I had spaces to fill. I can do that! :-)

    Karen,

    Are we doing a fat-quarter swap at this get-together?

    Jen, I think it would be fun to do a fat quarter swap! Get together is this coming Saturday in Beaverton from 1-4pm. Bring a fat quarter to swap, show and tell and if you just must, you may bring munchies! If you still need my address, pm me! I'm excited to see everyone and what they've been doing!

    Just an update on the groups thing - Patrice said that they are trying to decide whether to allow the use of groups for those planning get-togethers like this. Maybe next time...

    I'm looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday.

    Hi Karen: I'm really excited about the get-together on Saturday. Can't wait to see all the old-er friends and meet new ones, too. It'll be so fun, as always. If there are any quilters from the Gorge area who would like to carpool, please PM me.
    Be responsible, spay/neuter your pets and encourage friends/relatives to do the same. All babies are cute but if they don't have a home they live a life of torture, starvation, fear, and pain. YOU can make a difference!

    I'm getting so excited to see everyone! I made the comment to Faith I can't wait to talk to someone. I've been stuck in a bathroom for days stripping wallpaper and washing walls then painting. Karen, can't wait to see the stash!

    Cindy, you can stay and do mine, I don't even have wallpaper! The stash is now organized and I'm on to the scrap organizing! Hopefully I'll get it done by Saturday. See you and everyone else then!

    Sounds like a fun day, but no way I can go on a day trip anytime soon. I do hope to get to Portland in Feb or March --have a niece to visit and so much to see. LOL There is life at the end of this tunnel!

    Sorry you don't have any wallpaper but Faith does! We'll have a stripping party at her house! Oh yea! I'll help with painting anytime! I enjoy painting! Such a good workout!

    WilliP - how far are you from Oregon or do you live in OR? Rain Country? I think that should be OR or WA!!

    I may have to miss out on Saturday. I'll let you know when I know for sure.
    DD's boyfriend's parents are flying in from Alaska. This is "my parents meet your parents". Sounds serious doesn't it?
    DD thought they should come on out here for a BBQ, ride ATVs and maybe light the bonfire. It would have to be Saturday, if that is what they decide. Guess I better clean house-just in case!

    Hi everyone-I wanted to mention that A Comon Thread one of our LQS in Tigard is having an awesome program of Blue Bird Bucks. You buy 100.00 bucks and pay 80.00 and can be used on anything in store, but its the event I really wanted to tell you about.

    Linda Matteotti is an expert Handi Quilter Educator and is having a weekend full of classes for Longarm quilting basics, six ways to quilt using free-motion, groovy boards, pantographs, rulers and Pro-stitcher. She will also demonstrate her way of making feathers and ruler techniques. The class is $100.00 but buying the Blue Bird Bucks you pay 80.00 and they will give a 60.00 credit after attending the class for in store purchases. So the class(s) are really costing 20.00 when all said and done. It looks and sounds like a good deal and a lot of information. OK if you are interested you have to purchase the Blue Bird Bucks by the 15th. The class is the weekend of Feb. 10-12.

    I'm not a big Quilt Store shopper but this really looks interesting!

    2Doods this is exciting-it's sounding very serious!! I'm sorry you won't be there we will miss you!

    March 1-4 is the Sewing Expo in Puyallup, WA-is anyone planning to attend? and Stitches In Bloom Jan. 27-28 is also happening at the Oregon Gardens. This is also a nice show. I think Laurie, Quiltingnonie entered her quilts last year! Is anyone planning on this event?

    Karen,
    Thank you for hosting the get together yesterday and having such a crowd in. Had a wonderful time sharing and seeing what everyone else had to share. It was nice seeing those I met at the retreat and getting to meet those who I have read so much about on the board.
    Sorry we missed you Cindy.
