WARNING – Lots of pics and lots of fun!!
Fall 2016 Quilt & Sew-In Retreaters (minus 2) – Fabulous Group!!
So much to tell about the Fall Quilt & Sew-In Retreat in Blowing Rock, NC – SO much fun! Of course, I can’t share everything because of course, “What happens at retreat, stays at retreat!” How fortunate to have the best ladies to come and join in on the creativity and fun together. Lots of sewing, lots of laughs, learning new techniques and tricks, meeting new friends, catching up with old friends and more inspiration than I could handle!
The retreat was once again held at the Meadowbrook Inn – a beautiful and very comfortable boutique hotel in Blowing Rock, NC.
Take a peek inside our retreat:
