Our Smoky Mountain retreat for 2013 will again be the last full week in June. The cost will be $200.00 and we have 25 spaces. The preliminary list is as follows. If you told me you wanted to come when you were here in June or October of this year, please message me and remind me. It's been a rough time around our home and my brain isn't functioning well. lol

 

  1. Mary
  2. Andrea Dee
  3. Kathy Fritz
  4. Carolyn
  5. Janis

 

A non-refundable deposit of $75.00 will be due by the end of January with the remainder due the end of April. If you make a deposit and have to back out, you can find someone to take your place and have them refund your deposit as long as we are full. 

We will be bringing our own food again and I will assign each room a meal, either breakfast or dinner. Lunch will be leftovers or sandwiches. We will also do our gift exchange and have a trash to treasure table. This was such fun and Sara Wall, who is a member here and the owner of the lodge, is a wonderful, gracious hostess.

OMG, I would love to come, but I just started another job today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  YAY ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!  So, I don't think I'll be able to get off since I will be having my scrapbooking event in April.

But on a different note .............  I made a rag quilt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I don't know whether to be happy or what getting me started quilting.  I know it's not the caliber that y'all do, but it has gotten me to sit down to the sewing machine again!!!

Hugs,

Oh Faith you just have to come.  You would learn so many things from lots and lots of wonderful beautiful quilters.  You have to come!  But I understand how a job has to come first.  I'm probably going to have to take a day or two w/out pay as our calendar already goes to June 24 due to Super Storm Sandy.  I have one personal day left so I hope we don't have any s**w days at all.  Maybe just some days that start later than usual. 

Congratulations on your rag quilt.  Everyone starts somewhere.  You've caught the quilting addiction.  Keep up the good work.  Will we see a picture?

I just asked if that was going to be okay again this year as Dave had such a great time with Bill and Darlene's DH.  I'm sorry but I've forgotten his name. Dave really wants to come.  We have been planning on coming together to this since last year.  It's a long trip by yourself.  I did it for the Fall Fiber Frenzy and had a great time meeting new people, too.  Is Bill going to be planning another trip for the guys?  I'm ready to jump in the car and drive to TN right now.  I get so excited to see everyone again. I'm glad you and Bill are coming. Hope he has recovered completely from his surgery.

Hi Mary,     Add my name to the list, please.   Glad to see you back on line.  I have 3 very nice collections from those that I won this past year for door prizes to donate. 

Huggs and call me after the holidays.

Mary, That Carolyn is not me, is it?  I just joined the site in August and don't remember having heard of this before today.  I'm assuming it's another Carolyn who I haven't met yet, but just wanted to double-check.  :)
