Craftybear's Shop Hop:

In the afternoon we can car pool and visit 3 more quilt shops in the area (Middlebury, Lagrange and Rome City) and when we get done shopping we can eat supper.

I am sure we will be hungry for supper so I have called the 5 & 20 Restaurant (located corner of US 5 & US20) in Shipshewana, Indiana at 6:00 pm. and I have reserved the banquet room. We have space for 60 quilters to enjoy dinner (dinner at your own expense), show and tell and demonstrations.

You can bring your husband, other quilting friends or friends just let me know by private message (pm) how many coming as they don't have to be a member of the Quilting Board. We love to meet friends from all over.

Please bring show and tell projects as this is so much fun!

Please send me a private message (pm) so I can add you to the group activity page. Please let me know if you will be at Lollys for catered lunch and if you will be able to stay for supper at the 5 & 20 restaurant. I can give you my cell phone # by private message (pm) if you would like to have it in case you need to contact me by phone.

Be sure to wear a name tag with your user name so we will know you are from the Quilting Board and pin a piece of fabric to your top. This way if we are shopping we can spot each other and can wear our name tags for the meet and greet. Be sure to bring your cameras

I wish I could come. It is my granddaughter's birthday. I can't miss her party. It is the only thing I would rather do than come to Lolly's and meet everyone. Have fun!
