    NW OR/WA get together!

    I'm hosting a get together for those interested in doing a gathering. It is scheduled for January 14 from 1pm-4pm in Beaverton OR. We'll have munchies, show and tell and just visit. PM for address and directions or questions. Pass the word!

    Karen,

    Thanks for setting this up. I didn't get on the ball with it. January sounds so far away, but it really is just around the corner. Count me in. I've got it on my calendar!

    I wish I could come, but that is my son's birthday. I will be watching out for another meet n' greet in this area - I'd really love to meet some quilters from my neck of the woods! Have fun everyone!

    Karen, you are such a doll! I am having some minor surgery on the 10th, and God willing, I will BE THERE!

    Laurie, we'll be thinking positive thoughts for you so you can come! A little prayer won't hurt either!

    What do ya'll think about us starting a thread under groups so we can keep up with each other and always have a presents on the new board so if others want to join in our fun they can?That way we would not have to start new threads with each new activity we have?

    Cindy, doing a group sounds great but I'm going to let someone else figure out how to do it. I'm doing good just to do the basics here. I hope to get a little more learning time after the holidays.

    I haven't checked out the group section of the Board yet but if it will make it easier to keep up with one another, then I'm all for it! Thanks for the suggestion. How do we set it up?

    Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! My house is a disaster and we didn't even host. Lots of clean-up to do in the next couple of days then back to sewing so I can finish two Christmas gifts that didn't quite get done.

    I think the group sounds great! Who is the techie here that can set it up? lol It is NOT me! (Although I did manage to set up our group in my email address book)

    My Christmas was amazing...all my children, grandchildren, Dad & brothers were together. I will cherish it forever, because who knows when that will happen again. Plus, DH gave me EQ7!!

    I will be there too!! I do have to work that day so I may be a little late getting there. Pray the day goes well so that I can get out on time that day. Karen, please pm the address to me.

    Thanks,
    Angela

    p.s. I hope to have the retirement quilt done before then. The party is on the 21st. Would you all like to see it completed?

    Since I live in Beaverton, I will try to at least stop by to talk about the public TV QUILTING PROGRAM series. John is producing and I will be the host and I would LOVE TO HAVE ALL OF YOU INVOLVED who live close enough.
    Also the open, non juried Centennial Quilt Show at Metzger Saturday, January 28.
    I haven't figured out how to write my threads so they don't get removed but I will email Cobalt blue with information.
    I look forward to meeting all of you. Do you want a "field trip" on the 14th?

    No field trip for me, just visiting with the quilters that come. Really looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. Pass the word since I don't think some are getting the notifications for one reason or another.

    Just got a notification on this thread from quilting board along with about 60-70 others a few minutes ago. Wonder why they come out in batches? Some stuff I had not commented on in weeks.

    Will try to bring a project I have bound so all can see my 1 7/8" bindings I have perfected.
