hello...I''m newly signed up to this group...can't seem to find details on the Smokey Mtn retreat other than the date.  Could someone help me navigate?

I've never been to a retreat..can you believe that?

Thanks in advance!  Anita

Anita,

Go under the thread with Smoky Mtn retreat and the dates and leave a post for Mary. She is the top guru for the retreat and last I knew there was room. To my knowledge it is in Sevierville, TN.  You can also go under "What are you up to today #4" as a thread where we all chat, there are people there that can guide you better than me. I am relatively new at this but am going to VA Beach retreat in April, and to Smoky Mtn one in June. and welcome!

Nan,

Cleveland, TN

Welcome to the site.  Hope you enjoy your time with us.  I feel sure that Mary will see you post and let you know all the particulars on the retreat.  Last I heard there is still an opening.  We would love to meet you.  The cost is $172 /person for the week.

Thanks Nan!  I did leave a msg for Mary this morning but will be out of town this weekend, so I hope I don't miss out. 

Looks like I'm too late for the Va Beach retreat...maybe there'll be another one at the beach sometime.  I'm from Va Beach and now in Raleigh NC.

I have a niece that lives in the Raliegh area.   My oldest DD also used to live there and married a man from Apex.   They are now in Roanoke.

Do you ever come this way?  We've been here since '76 and have seen quite some change.  We also have a mountain home near Roanoke, in Woolwine on the eastern side of the Blue Ridge from Floyd.  Small world.

I look forward to the retreat.  Haven't connected with Mary yet to get my deposit in or learn what the details are for the retreat, but I'm excited none the less.

One of my favorite quilt shops is in Floyd.  Love the Schoolhouse Fabrics.

I'm sorry I haven't kept up with this thread. It's been a bit busy and I've decided to be sick this week...sinus/cold/sore throat etc. Glad I got my Christmas shopping and wrapping done so early...very unlike me! My traditional Christmas shopping time is this week. I HATE shopping...any kind...except for my LQS and LYS...those I love to shop in.

As far as I know, I've responded to everyone who has asked to be with us for the retreat. If I haven't, be sure you have me as a friend. I try to friend everyone who is on the list. If you haven't gotten my info for the deposit, make sure we are "friends" and message me to let me know.

Hubby and I picked up those things when we went over there a few weeks ago. He has been on me to send them out even though it's still months away. I'm very glad he is so organized otherwise you would be getting them AFTER the retreat if left to my own devices. lol

I'm so excited about the retreat. Time flies when you are my age but I think the next 6 months are going to crawl.

I'm sorry to hear you're sick...it's no fun, particularly this time of year. Hope you're well soon.

I'm excited too...6 months seem so far away.  My deposit is in the mail so woohoo!  I'm in!    

Get well!

If you think 6 months is going to fly just stop and think that the VB retreat is now less than 4 months.....woohoo,    I can hardly wait for either of these retreats.

It is the SE retreat and is being held in Virginia Beach.  Right now we are full but if a spot opens I will let you know if you are interested.
