Retreat time almost here

8 days and counting
I hope everyone is as excited as me; I am ready for some sewing time and as much as I love retreat I will be anxious to get back home.
Some of you know and some do not but we are expecting our first grandchild at the end of the month so I am very excited.
I have been sewing lots of baby things but what isn't finished is on the design wall and not coming with me.
I mentioned in the reminder letter about a fun fabric swap I want to try...if you are interested bring a yard of a fabric of your choice with you.
I also mentioned some possible changes for our garage sale table-some of us have assorted items we've made for craft sales etc. such as pincushions, pot holders. Maybe scrap fabric bags or small projects you no longer want to complete rather than so many magazines and patterns.
As always open for suggestions-so far every year we have raised enough to send a child to camp.

See you soon.

41 days and counting

How many of you know what projects you are going to bring to the retreat. We always bring a months worth of sewing for 3 days but then you know you won't get bored.
I usually change my mind so many times that by the time I get there I don't know what I brought to work on. I suppose if I didn't start so many things there would be less to choose from but that wouldn't be as much fun.
I will be sending a reminder email shortly and I hope you are all as excited as I am.
Fingers crossed for great fall weather Oct 16-19th.

***Notice*** there has been a cancellation for one of the beds in the bunk area(all lower) so if you know anyone who wants to come have them contact me ASAP.
