09 Nov Our Handwork group
As I mentioned before, I belong to three different quilting/creative groups. Our handworking group gets together every other week. Our next meeting is tomorrow and I always look forward to seeing everyone! A lot of handquilting takes place as well as some hand applique and, lately, a lot of knitting.
These photos are from our retreat last spring. On the top left are Judy and Sue, the top right has Sharon, Margie and Marilyn, on the bottom photo is Renee.
We go to a great place in Chesaning, MI called Creative Passions (http://www.creativepassionsllc.com/). It is a former church with lots of space and is about 90 minutes away from most of our homes. I think this is the perfect distance. It is far enough away that you can’t run home for little interuptions, but close enough that you don’t spend precious retreat time driving.
The retreat begins at noon on Monday and goes thru 3pm on Thursday. We all bring whatever projects we want to work on – there isn’t a retreat project or a theme. I think we all have nearly as much fun trying to decide what projects to bring as we do being there!
We are looking at dates now for next spring’s retreat and I can’t wait!! Four days of quilting with wonderful friends -what could be better than that.
