I'm leaving early tomorrow for a 3 day quilt retreat at a center run by monks. The facility is "out of this world" gorgeous, food is provided, and there will only be 14 of us at this event. What a wonderful time to be able to spend with ladies who think just like I do. It's a 'bring your own project' type retreat, so all will be working on something different. What do you like to take to work on at retreats? Do you have a favorite location?
