Quilt Camp!


I'm home from Quilt Camp! What a fun time was had by all.

First off, this retreat was the best put together retreat that I have EVER been on. All we had to do was set up and sew! Meals were provided, snacks were plentiful...we had a full 6 ft banquet table PER PERSON (no sharing!) so there was lots of room to spread out......

The accomodations were great....it was an episcopal church camp, and we were in no way "roughing it!" If you have any interest in coming to SC for a retreat, definately contact Joyce or Sherry at Just Stitchin' Retreats to see what retreats are underway in the future!

The pic of the camp shows the lake....and the trails, the pines, it was a very relaxing place for a retreat! Plans are underway for a fall retreat in October, I can't wait!

During the retreat I had the pleasure of being the on-staff massage therapist, and we had ALL slots full! I gave 12 massages over the weekend, and it was a treat to get to know the ladies a bit better. I've been a member of the Devine Quilter's guild in Columbia since moving here 4 years ago, but this is the first retreat for me, and a great way to get to know the ladies. (We are called the Devine Quilters because we meet on Devine Street in Columbia, but I would like to think we are just Devine in all ways possible ;c)

I finished two quilt tops while at the retreat. I'll have to get pics tomorrow...it's dark now...but here is a pic taken by Sherry of me working away at my machine in between massages!

Wow, you were productive. Lookinf forward to seeing photos of those two quilt top. I could handle a quilting retreat with a massage therapist. Yeap, sounds good to me. Glad to read that you had a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing.

There's nothing like a quilt retreat to get oneself refocused! Sounds so wonderful.

Sounds like a DEVINE retreat! Nothing better than a perfect weekend, and that was it.

Bonnie got the award for Power Sewer of the Retreat. Zoom zoom zoom she went. I was Bonnie's roommate and finished my own project as well (my blue star blocks are in the picture of Bonnie). Thanks, Bonnie, for a great weekend, and to Sherry and Joyce for doing such a fabulous job! Oh and Bonnie's quilt is gorgeous!
