Welcome to Ma's Got'a Notion
Here at Ma's, we got your back...quilt back, that is!!!

Can you believe it? The day of the quilter's road trip is almost here! I wanted to share your itinerary for Saturday, April 13, 2024.

You will board the bus at Ma's in front of the shop. A reminder about parking: Parking: on the corner of Orange Street and Market Street, you will find that parking place catty corner of the Havana Police Department, one block from my shop. Google 224 W. Market St. Havana, IL, and it will take you there. The large parking lot directly in front of Riverside Club is the other place you could park. Google 417 W. Main St. for the address. Either lot will be safe, and both are a short distance from the shop; each is less than a block.

Boarding time: 7 am in front of Ma's shop.

Departing time: 7:30 am

Arrive in Mahomet at 9:15 am. "The Quilting Bee" will receive a snack from them.

Depart Mahomet 10:30 am

Arrive in Effingham at 11:45 am. "The Wooden Spool" will serve a lunch of Pulled Pork with sides and dessert.

Depart Effingham at 1:15 pm.

Arrive in Staunton at 2:45 pm. "Itch'n to be Stitch'n" will receive a snack from them.

Depart Staunton at 4 pm.

Arrive in Rochester at 5 pm. "Piece & Applique" will serve a dinner of Baked Potatoe bar.

Depart Rochester at 6:30 pm.

Arrive back at Ma's at 7:30 pm.

If none of the above meals meet your dietary needs, please bring a packed bag of your preferred safe foods. The shops cannot meet all our guests' diet needs. We want you all to be safe, enjoy your day, and find the fabric you have searched for forever!

Your bus mom is Barb Chumley. Please return the "Health Information & Emergency Authorization Form" I put in your goody bag that you received from Ma's shop. The information will not be shared with anyone except emergency personnel for your safety and privacy. Your bus mom, Barb, is a registered nurse and will be equipped with a first aid kit. Should you require medical attention in any form, please advise Barb.

Barb will call each of the shops, letting them know the bus is 15 minutes out before your arrival. She will also let you know that you will soon be at each destination, readying you for a fun-filled shopping spree!

Thank you for sharing your day with us on this quilting voyage. 

We appreciate each of you at Ma's and hope you have a great day. We also hope you remember us as your home shop and come to see us often.

Feel free to call my cell at 309-357-1728 if you have any questions about the trip I may not have answered in this email. Also, be sure to forward this email to your travel companions if, by chance, they did not get it. 

Sincerely, Sue, aka "Ma"






Have a great week, and I hope to see you around the cutting table at Ma's.
