I’ve just posted the Fun Report for the Alumni Winter Escape Retreat & Alumni Addicts Day! Enjoy!
March 11, 2014
First up -- the big news! I’ve posted preview information on the Kindred Spirits Retreat to be held in Mystic, CT on October 3-4, 2014!!! Ann Pettit of Brightneedle will be teaching “My Sewing Book”, a project inspired by Anne of Green Gables, a favorite book (and movie) for many of us! In the book Anne refers to “kindred spirits” - people that make a special connection through shared beliefs, feelings or experiences. As stitchers we share a lot in common, and so I’ve named this exciting event the Kindred Spirits Retreat!
This is going to be such a fun event -- and our project is adorable!!
For those that can arrive the night before, we’ll be watching the movie “Anne of Green Gables” together! There will also be an optional stitching exchange -- participants will stitch up something about friendship and finish it in the form of their choosing!
Now let me tell you what a fantastic time we had at the Alumni Winter Escape and Alumni Addicts Retreat!!!! This year it was held at the Publick House Inn in Sturbridge, MA. We had loads of room there, fantastic food, and stitching, stitching, stitching! I’m very eager to get a Fun Report written up about the retreat so that those of you who missed it can read about it. We defintely loved the location and having an optional additional day of stitching, so my plan is to do it again in 2015!
We had some VERY memorable laughter-filled meals there with an entertaining hostess!
Oh, there is just so much I could say about the retreat -- but instead of putting more here I’m going to get cracking on that Fun Report so you can read about it all at once!
See you at the next retreat!
