BIG NEWS! I have just posted the Gingerbread Christmas Retreat information and have now officially opened up registration!!
Thea Dueck has design the Gingerbread Retreat Cottage for us and it was inspired by my own little seasonal cottage that I have so often mentioned in my newsletters. Just look at this!!!
And now look at the front of my cottage! Isn’t that amazing? How gifted she is to imagine how my summer retreat would look at Christmas time and in gingerbread! She nailed it!
In other news, I now have just 5 openings left for the Making Waves in Sturbridge retreat with Diane Herrman and her gorgeous Walking on Water’s Edge design! Don’t delay if you want in on this fantastic retreat!
Just last week was the annual Alumni Addicts Day and Winter Escape Retreat. We had 3 fun-filled days of wild and crazy stitching, laughing, eating, and shopping! What a great time! Some of the attendees were trying to persuade me to have a Stitcher’s Hidea-WEEK next year so that we could have even more time together! Ha-ha!!!
At last week’s retreat we had wonderful and generous donations for door prizes and our Fun Packs from A Sweet Stitch, Brightneedle, Bush Mountain Stitchery & Framing, Classic Colorworks, Dinky Dyes, Glendon Place, Kreinik, Lizzy Kate, Morning Glory Needleworks, Prairie Schooler, Praiseworthy Stitches, Rosewood Manor, Samplers and Such, Tempting Tangles, The Sweetheart Tree, Victoria Sampler and With My Needle. That certainly added to all the fun! Thank you donors for introducing us to your many designs and threads!
I’ll be working on a full report of our wonderful time together soon. In the meantime, here’s a picture of most of us gathered in one place for a crazy moment!
See you at a retreat soon!
