Barb, may I call you that ? I looked at the web site and it looks great. As for the date, I would rather do it during the summer months But I will go along with the majority.
Leslie, Barb's fine , It is beginning to look liek we may have to do alittle earlier then we thought at first , I'm going to see about maybe the 2nd week in Sept, and see how that works for everyone?Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
You know gals........ This place that Barbara found looks like it could hold a lot more than 12 sewers even th ough it only sleeps 12. Perhaps there are some hotels nearby where you could put other retreaters up. If rooms are shared, the expenses would be doable for the most part.
Marge,thats a possibility, if other want to come .it would have to be their deicision . but the the house will only sleep 12. I do agree that more could be there during the day for interaction.and there does appear to be plenty of sewing room. I have not closed this event if more want to attend. You would have to get a hotel which there are plenty of , and yes sharing would cut down on expense..Barbara
Barbara:, if other want to come
You never know....... If I can get Lewis to bring Nana over to somewhere in TN to meet me, I could drag her along with me and surprise you all!
First of all, thank you for all your hard work in getting this retreat put together. Pleasing a bunch of strangers has got to be difficult. Please keep Susan and I on your guest list as far a sewing room but we will opt to stay at a hotel and meet for sewing during the day. I hope that helps others to be able to attend.
PD, thats fine with me ,is you two want to do that ,there should be plenty of good hotels close . I'll let you know when I get ahold of the owners . Barbara
Marge if you and your suprise guest want to come thats okay with me . LOL SO do I need to add you to the list? Barbara
Now you are planning trips for me.....yeah!...... Love road trips.
Wellllll I don't know Nana. It all depends on when it falls and how things go. This is a whole year away and you were planning to go to the west coast retreat - right?
Barbara:SO do I need to add you to the list
Tell you what...... You can put me on with a question mark. Is that OK????
Marge thats OK ,I have a couple others that are the same..Barbara
Yes I am going to the Western retreat in Oct. I can hardly wait.
If we have room, I would like to bring a guest. I like the idea of having someone to make the long drive with, and she is my quilting/gardening BFF.
PS - Nana, it looks like I'm doing all three trips. DH is cool with going to Leavenworth via Amtrak. My first year of retirement is shaping up to be a very fun, very quilty year! Come on, you can do one more trip!
On the banks of the Mississippi River in north central Minnesota (Brainerd lakes area)
The only way I could do this one is if Marge goes and we meet up somewhere. Also it will depend on the cost. Have to see if I can afford a third trip. But it does sound awesome.....
