Happy Sunday Friends!

Our second annual retreat is in the books and It was WONDERFUL!!

We had 32 fantastic ladies present to stitch, shop and have a great time at Our Annual Fall Retreat Oct 24-27 at the Quintessential Century House in Latham! Taffy Soderholm had a beginner Hardanger Class and she gave some wonderful demonstrations on how to make cording and how to make tassles! She is truly Amazing! (I will be posting How to make a tassel on the new Education page of the website)

 

On Saturday, Sharon Verbos from The Purple Thread entertained us while showing us how to make making a this sweet like floss holder and she provide us with some great shopping pleasure! 

I am so happy to say that she will be back for next year’s Fall Retreat (October 22-25th-the weekend before Halloween as usual) with an Exclusive design just for US!!!! I can’t wait!  Watch for more details...
