    If you get 6 interested sew'ers without me, I'd be glad to come & do a hand sewing project if there would be room for 6 plus a hand-sewer. My kids are in 2nd, 4th, & 6th grades. I struggle with making plans for ME ahead of time, because something inevitably screws them up. I really hope to make this a priority, but don't want to take a spot from someone else then not be able to come. I love making yo-yo's & could happily work on those & chat. I am trying to make a yo-yo Christmas tree FOR ME by December, so it would be time well-spent.

    You can certainly join us, we have room for 10 to come and sew. We aren't up to that yet.
    I know what you mean my grkids are 2nd and 4th and my DH works strange hours, plus my grown kids and other family. DH and I both are from large families.

    Hi Granmydar, I am planning on coming on the 14th and can bring brownies to add to the lunch. I'll call you if I can't make it, but I sure am looking forward.

    Gosh this sounds like so much fun but live too far away.
    However, my husband and I are headed back to central PA for a wedding on the 8th and are planning to stop at the quilt shop in Punxsy and Curwensville. I didn't realize there were quilt shops in those two towns. Thanks and you all have a great time!

    The shop in Punx is sort of hidden so if you need directions please ask. Not sure about the Curwensville one.

    I hope you get to check these out, Curwensville is one of my favorite shops, though I don't get there often.

    Were any of you in Ridgway today at the quilter's gathering? I was there, but didn't get to it until right at 1:00. I'm easy to spot... my daughter in a wheelchair was my guest for the day. It was a fun trip & I picked-up a few FQ's, just because! ;)

    I am still hoping to come on the 14th. I think I'll be working on my yo-yo's, but that's subject to change. I'll see what I get into this week & go from there.

    Hi, Tilted Ears!
    I've heard an awful lot about yoyos and an dying to know more. I hope to be there the 14th also so maybe we can chat then. What goes on in Ridgeway? I'm a beginner, and I can't wait to learn.

    This was new to me today - it's an annual get-together of quilters from within ~1 hour or so. There were folks from Bradford, Smethport, Brookville, Punxsutawney, Kersey, St. Marys... They show-off what they've made. Lots of fat quarters given away (you gave a FQ when you walked in the door, then they gave bundles of them away throughout the day). There were a few vendors - quilt shops from St. Marys, Brockway, Cranberry, & Reynoldsville. I spent a little $ on some FQ's. It was fun to see what gorgeous things folks have been making. I'll gladly share with you how I make my yo-yo's. There are yo-yo makers, but I doubt they used a contraption in the olden days & I do the same.

    I have lots of projects I need to finish-up. I am exchanging a fall wall-hanging with a lady in my fabric postcard group. It needs to be bound & a few more beads added as embellishment. That's a possibility if I don't have it finished by then. I would really like to get my yo-yo Christmas tree done in time for THIS year. I am signed-up for an ornament exchange here on the board. I have my design, just need time to make them. Also, hope to make a wall-hanging or table runner for me in time for Christmas. I have started it, but other projects keep getting in the way. I am excited for sure!

    Oh - I'll bring a fruit salad & some small bowls/cups. Should we plan to bring our own place setting or will someone bring paper products?

    This is my first time with an "official" away-from-home sewing gathering (versus in the car waiting for kids). Just wondering if there is an iron available for group use? Also, I'll see if I can google directions, but may be calling to be sure I don't waste time trying to find your place.

    Bonni does have irons available for use by the group. I will bring some kind of dessert - I can only stay until around 1:30 since I have to have to go to work after. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
