Well, while at Paducah this past April with JudyL, Elaine, and Becky, we decided to do a Shipshewana Retreat in 2010. The retreat is not affiliated with any one group, so, if you have any friends that would be interested, please let them know. We're just quilters getting together to sew, eat and shop in Shipshewana. There's no better place to do all 3 of those, in my opinion.
The dates are Thursday, October 21 - Sunday, October 24th, 2010 and we are staying at the Farmstead Inn.
An approximate breakdown of the cost is:
$99+tax for a double room with 2 queen beds per night. (add $10 per night for each additional guest, so if you want to share a bed, it's pretty cheap).
PLUS The sewing room will be $400 for the entire retreat and will be divided among attendees. A very nice complementary continental breakfast is served at the inn, but your other meals will be on your own.
I have a block of 20 rooms reserved and can release any unneeded rooms until 30 days prior to the retreat.
This is going to be a simple quilting retreat and I'm not planning a lot of extra activities, although there will be a JudyL mystery quilt.
If you've never been to Shipshewana, you're in for a real treat. If you might be interested, let me know.
