Back From Shipshewana

What a wonderful retreat! I can't believe it's here and gone already. I so enjoyed meeting everyone and am simply amazed by the talents of our group. Show and Tell was a treat and Jane's idea of laying everything out in the lounge area and walking around to see all the wonderful projects made it great. We could ask questions if we wanted more info and those that wanted to get back to sewing could browse quickly and get right back to work. We did show and tell on Friday and I'll bet if we had waited another day, there would have been twice a much.

The Farmstead Inn was the perfect setting with clean spacious guest rooms and an ample sewing room. Next year we will try to get an even larger sewing area so we have more room to lay out those works in progress.

To the Retreaters:
Thanks so much for the wonderful gift and I really appreciate your kind words on the postcards. It really was a fun event to plan and I have already been talking to the group coordinator about 2011.

Here is a link to some photos. Not all of them have captions yet. If you know who the owners of the show and tell items are, please leave a comment on the photo.

Thanks so much Ruthie for this GREAT retreat. Everything was organized and stress free.
Your sewing area was very neat and clean. We are all so different in setting up a sewing area.
