Colorado get-together?
 
Hi everyone,
I know there are at least three of us on this board who live in Colorado, but I'm sure there are more than that. Is there any interest in a Centennial State get-together sometime? It can just be something simple like coffee or lunch, or we can do a mini-retreat, like one overnight at a hotel somewhere and time to sew together (if your machine isn't portable, I can bring an extra Featherweight).
I'm open to ideas! I have the last week of October off (I'm a teacher, and it's fall break), so the last weekend (23rd-25th) would be good.
Let me know, either by replying here or sending me a private message.
Ila :)

I'm a little far away to attend but I do know the couple we've had here were successes.
If anyone is able to make it, it'll be worth your while to go. I've made some good friends attending these get-togethers.

Thank you, Ila, for suggesting this. Sounds like fun to be able to meet some "like minded" people. I know I have seen several that have posted on vintage forum from Colorado (but could be on the other side of the mountains). I did an advanced search and found that there are 313 that have listed Colorado and 36 that list Denver as their location. Of course, there are many that don't post anywhere on the Quilting Board and probably a lot that don't give their location.

Let Ila know you would be interested and ideas for maybe a future "get together" if you can't make it this time.

I'm not familiar with Colorado - so which side of the mountains are you talking about? I might be interested on one on "my" side of the mountains. (OK - the side towards South Dakota).

I know I am on the wrong side of those mountains. Sounds like fun.

Hey, Ila maybe we can have another "get together" next summer to coincide with Steve's annual cross country trip. (Steve, I did get that right that it was to be an annual trip?)

Cathy, I think, so far it is mainly what is considered the "front range" of Colorado which would include what is east of the mountains including Loveland, Longmont, Denver, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs etc.

Sounds good to me.
Watching for more details.

Yepper! We will be leaving the Bay Area on Saturday May 21st and be on the road for two weeks. If the event was June 3rd we would have the time to participate and then start scooting home Saturday so I can get to work on Monday the 6th

:) This is a great idea, Ila! Please keep the discussion going. We've been unavailable quite a bit lately, but doing this on that weekend might work.

Steve, it would be grand to schedule another gathering when you could attend on June 3.
