  3. I'm about 3 hours from Houston, 4 hours from New York, and a little over an hour from Washington. I wish I was closer!

  4. I live in New Hampshire...not too far from New York. I think New York would surprise you, it did me the first time I visited. I used to live in Indiana (next to Terry in Ohio). My first visit to New York I was shocked!! The "city" is very much the "city" but New York state is also very rural like. Lots of green space and mountains.

  5. I'm in New Jersey. I can get to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in about 1 1/2 hours; New York City is about an hour on the train. Washington, DC is south of us. . .don't recall exactly the driving distance.

    I belong to a small quilt guild (Birds of a Feather).

    There aren't too many quilt shops near me. . . most of them are at least a 45 minute drive away.

    Most of my favorite shops are in Lancaster, PA.

  7. Happy Australia Day!!!
    I live in northern Illinois, about a half an hour from Chicago. Not one of the cities you aked about, but I am in a guild, a Bee, and I work at a local quilt shop.
    I would love to see Australia, my Dad was there in the late 60's, but I have never made it there.

  9. I live about 40 minutes South of Houston. There is one nice quilt shop in Houston that I know of and then another one about an hour away from me. I wish you WOULD come this way...maybe for Quilt Festival in November?? ;0)
