I have a meet and greet set up for Friday, June 24, 2011 at 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!

If you would like to attend my 3rd Meet and Greet please post a note here along with sending me a private message and on the subject line put Shipshewana Meet and Greet June 2011 so I can add you to the group activity page. 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 before our meet and greet or you can reach me at the festival.

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

ACTIVITY PAGE: http://www.quiltingboard.com/group_a...sp?gracnum=157


I was wondering if anyone would like to make a pincushion to exchange at the meet and greet.
We can also exchange 10 pre wash fabrics (size 5 inch blocks) in a zip lock bag.
If you have other ideas please let me know so when I send out the reminder I can put a note on there so if anyone wants to participate we can.

** Note, I will be arriving Thursday, June 23, 2011 going to the quilt shows and quilt shops. I am staying the night and will be more shopping for Friday before we meet for supper. Also staying Friday night for more shopping on Saturday **
