    Hi, eight of us from the Willamette Valley will be there. We have rented a house and are really excited about our outing!

    True Grandma G.....good walking shoes and bottles of cold water. You can buy it from various places/people around the town but be prepared.

    I'll be there bright and early, going to have breakfast and then meander. I tried meeting up with friends there last year and it's almost impossible or I'd suggest it!...LOL

    We (winewoman/2doods/colbaltjars62) met a bunch of quiltboard friends at the Sisters show last year. We met up at the Park at around 12:30 pm. Had a blast, plus some of us hit the Estate/garage sales on the way home. Wonder if we show up to the park this year if we will meet up with anyone we know! I am part of the group that Scotlass was talking about. Hope to see you all there!!!

    Two years ago we agreed to meet at the park, but it's a big park and hard to find people there unless we know which corner. I'd love to meet some others if we can set a time and a more detailed place.

    I'll be there from the Central Valley of California! This will be my first time. Our quilting teacher arranges a bus trip to Sisters every other year. We'll leave on Thursday and return on Sunday, stopping at 7-8 quilt shops all along the way. Can't wait!!!

    I live in Nor. Calif. close to Oregon Border - I would love to go - its on my birthday...My friend and I may make a quick overnight trip if we can find somewhere to stay - I realize we will have to stay at a location farther away - it sounds like fun. If I don't make it this year - next year you couldn't keep me away.

    There are 5 of us coming from the Eugene area via Experience Oregon bus. One of us has never been before. It will be fun to see it through her eyes.

    And, of course, you all must detour to the Fabric Depot. They'll even pack and ship it for you. Have fun and get that sunscreen working. I'm going to miss the trip this year.

    I'd love to go to the Fabric Depot -- but it's 4 hours from my house. I'm an hour plus south of Sisters. A group of us planned to go this summer but other plans beat it out Sorry you can't make it to Sisters!!
