    For all of you in the PNW, how about September 11 at my place out in the woods? I am west of North Plains 3 1/2 miles off Hwy 26. PM for directions and RSVP.

    Saturday
    September 11, 2010
    1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
    OR come early if you want a walk in the woods and lunch. Just let me know so I can have some groceries here for you:thumbup:

    Don't wash your car before you come-gravel road!

    If another day works better, I am open to suggestions.

    We will miss you, Feathers! Hope you are doing well!

    CrazyBaker (Mary) and I plan to be there at 1:00! If anything changes, please let us know. Thanks!

    Whoops! E-gad, I have to attend the Oregon City celebration. Our car club is one of the main hosts. Darn, I won't be able to make it. I'll be thinking of you!

    Blast! I was hoping to make the Sept gathering together but my son is graduating Navy boot camp that weekend! Please share all the fun/pictures on the board after! I'll miss you ladies! I talk about our gatherings for weeks after! Thanks for taking it on since Feathers can't this time. I do hope she's feeling better! Please post who is hosting and when the next one is so I can add it to my calendar.

    Based on responses so far, can you move it back a weekend? I could come then and maybe some of the others could as well?

    Depending on the area of Seattle it is about 3 hours! Others have made it from just east of you and they drove to Salem which is just another 1/2 hour south. It was fun meeting them!

    I'd say about 4+ hours. Depends on what end of Seattle and stops along the way. Do a Mapquest search and it can tell you exactly.

    Actually, the 18th or 19th would be best for me too, but will go with what majority rules and hostess rules.

    It is all freeway-I kept an eye out for quilt shops on the way but we were on a tight schedule.

    We loaded the kid's truck here on Saturday and they had some friends that were going to drive up to help at the other end. At the last minute the "friends" bailed on them.

    I rounded up my parents, hubby, nephew and his roommate. The 6 of us went up Sunday morning unloaded the truck, took a tour of the business the kids bought and then came home. Pretty expensive trip because I had to keep feeding the nephew! (and roommate) Nephew is 24 but eats like my brother did all through his teens-bottomless pit :lol:

    Hi Alice, Thanks for hosting. Please put me down as tentative. The Ducks have a home game on the 18th and I know that DH has plans to go to that already. I'll see if I can drum up some Grandma-time for the kids. I'll let you know soon!

    Is anyone planning on going to the NW Quilt Expo the following weekend? Maybe some of us can hook up there too? Maybe this is a question for a separate thread? I'll put one out there in a few weeks, when we get a bit closer.

    Hope to see you all soon!

    Jen

    It's going to be Thurs.-Sat., Sept. 23-25th. Held at the Portland Expo Center. I'll probably go on Saturday, but need to take another look at classes offered on the first two days. Some looked really appealing to me.
