Twenty years ago: the first PieFest
We still chat on our YahooGroup. Many of us are Facebook friends. We've had meetups in 2001 (Kansas City), 2004 (Vancouver, BC), 2006 (Lowell, MA), 2008 (Las Cruces, NM), 2010 (Chicago --here and here), 2012 -- Santa Clara, CA (no blog post), 2014 (Australia), 2016 (Fort Worth), 2018 (Maine). [There have also been smaller meetups with fewer of us.] We've shared births of children and grandchildren, deaths of spouses, parents (and two Magpies), illnesses (cancer that's reappeared, several surgeries), jobs obtained and lost and retired from. Oh, yes, and we've made a few quilts along the way!
