I will be in Vancouver (Tsawwassen) during most of August. I would love to get together with anyone so inclined. Let me know if you are interested and what type of get together you would like. Hopefully we can put something together.

You bet!

I'm in. And I've proposed a lunch date with LynnRowe - we could all get together and... eat, drink, merrily fabric shop?

Cheap fabrics, like cheap shoes, are a false economy.

Hi Leslie,

Any chance you may come over to Vancouver Island/Victoria or Nanaimo for a day? Weekend hopefully I work Monday through Friday. Victoria has a few nice fabric shops and several quilt shops.

The only time in August that I will be in Vancouver is next weekend. With my teens. We are heading over on Saturday Aug 4th and coming home again on August 5.

Where in NZ are you from? I have family on the South Island from Nelson to Invercargill.

HI Michelle

I am originally from Canada and lived many years in Victoria. I don't know if I will be in Victoria, I have nothing planned at the moment...of course a PR get together would change my mind!! Maybe we will hear from other V. Islanders.

I am in Vancouver now and the weather is fantastic!! Beautiful blue skies and quite warm. Tsawwassen is very quiet. I think everyone left for the long weekend. Yesterday I got reacquainted with Ladner. Not sure what I am doing today, but tomorrow is the 40th annual Sun Festival for BC Day...not to be missed!!

We've had a couple of PM chats...here's the rough outline:

Thursday Aug 16 meet up downtown to grab a bite (I'm thinking La Tacqueria - yum) and grope some fabric at Dressew, 2pm.

Attending so far are myself, LynnRowe and Leslie in NZ.

Anyone else who finds themselves in the neighbourhood, please join us!

HI Vivienne
I am really looking forward to this! I looked up La Tacqueria - it is at 322 West Hastings Street in case anyone else needs to know.

Will meet you and Lynn there at 2pm on Thursday.
