Sorry I can't go with you, but I know you will enjoy yourself. Just don't
get too busy with the quilting part to enjoy the scenery. Ketchikan and
Sitka are very scenic areas. Try to visit the Raptor Center in Sitka, where
they nurse sick Eagles back to health. You will also see lots of eagles
flying around in Sitka. Look for their white heads in the trees. They look
like golf balls from a distance. We saw so many eagles soaring around while
they were "fishing". It was truly awesome! You will find a lovely quilt shop
in Ketchikan. Look for the sign that you can see from the first street off
the dock. The prices are higher than in the lower 48 states, but they carry
lots of fabrics that feature local wildlife, like eagles, wolves, moose,
etc. Have fun and take lots of pictures. Toodles, Bigbearlady/Phyllis

  OH MY!!!  I would almost KILL for walrus fabric!!!   I collect the wonderful
darlings and have only found a few fabrics with walrus on them :-(.  Just
ordered a yard of flannel with BIG walrii (that's MY plural for walrus -- LOL)
from a shop online!  CiaoMeow >^;;^<
