I live out in the way-burbs of Philly. With the kiddos and work making meetings would be near impossible. Dag nabbit.

Kris said...

I would love to be in the loop about when meetings are. Although I live in Rochester, I'm down in Philly often enough that I just might make it to one!

I'm in! I live in Harrisburg but would totally be willing to head to Philly to get together with other modern quilters. By the way has anyone thought about posting a sign at Spool in Philly? Just a thought.

Michelle said...

yay! While I am not new to sewing (i came from a childhood of hand-made frocks) I am new to quilting-- making gifts for all of my godchildren that are popping up! I would LOVE to meet up with other sewists & quilters in the area!
I'm downtown philly, but i can travel :)
