Washers and dryers are available so you can pack fewer clothes and more fabric! lol Just bring or better yet buy your own detergent, etc. so we don't use up Sara's stuff.

I'm sure we will find a space...maybe hang you on a hook at night. Just kidding. I want to get the week long folks in first but I'm sure we will have space to put you, don't worry.

If any of you have a something you'd like to donate for the door prizes or if your local quilt shop, (especially if it's on the internet) would like to donate something, I would appreciate it. I've contacted several vendors and have some promises but some are saying the economy is preventing them from donating. Make sure to get 20 or so cards from donors so our gals can shop at their internet stores.

Kathy...you and Andrea can stay with me if you come up early. Are you all riding together?

Is anyone coming from or through the Detroit/Ann Arbor area that could pick up a fellow quilter? She is on the Quilting Board website and would love to come but can't drive alone. Please let me know ASAP.

I am leaving a week early so I am sure we are not riding together; but, I will probably get there on Friday, so are you sure you can put up with me one additional night?

I know the problem you are having because the 2 LqS's I asked gave the same reply in addition to summer being so slow because the snowbirds (who seem to be the ones with money) have all gone home.  But don't worry, we are not coming for door prizes anyway, we are coming for the fellowship, fun, food, drinks and pranks!

Cannot wait to see you again. You are welcome for as long as you want to stay, before and after the retreat! It's been a rough year but I'm getting really excited about the retreat. May even clean my sewing room. I think a tornado blew through here!

Okay, ladies. A few facts for the newbies. This is NOT a dry retreat. BYOB. There will be plenty of tables to set up your machines. Not sure how many power strips Sara has left so if you can bring one, please do so. If you have dietary restrictions, please bring/buy food you can eat. With so many folks, we cannot cater to individuals. Any Ott lights you wish to bring will be welcome. If you are shy now, you won't be after the retreat. We are going to have such fun!

Will add more as time goes on.

I am getting soooooo excited for this retreat.  I am not anywhere ready as far as knowing what I am going to work on, or anything else.  I think I am going to wing it.

Kathy, are we still doing strip poker?  I have not done any practicing but need to get  strips.

Andrea, glad to see we are roommates.  It is going to be so great to see all of you again.

Mimi, can't wait to see what you are working on now, you are such an inspiration to all of us.

Darlene and Beth, looking forward to see you again.

Faith, I am excited to see you and your rag quilt.

I am looking forward to meeting new friends too.

Mary , are we having the massage ladies again?
