Coralee just sent this tid-bit to me. It sounds GREAT! So I am putting it out there to all of you. If you would like to do this let the organizers know, and please let Coralee know also. It would be fun for a group of Houston Ladies to travel together for this Quilters Extravaganza!
It appears that this trip is being organized by "Satin-Moon Quilt Shop" In Victoria B.C. Read on to find out more details!
I almost forgot the most exciting development.
At the request of several local quilters I have arranged a trip to the APQN Quilt fest in Seattle. This is the general proposal for the trip, other details will be confirmed very soon .
The group will be limited to 24, but is open to everyone on the Island or off who wish to depart and return from Victoria.
One participant will win a free Clipper ticket , to be used on this trip ( discounted from the cost) .
