We'd like to have rooms close by and food. The price needs to be reasonable to the services provided. The retreat would begin on Friday and end of Sunday. Do you have any suggestions or ideas? Would appreciate your input. Blessings.

    The treadle irons have had the rust scrubbed into submission. They are painted and back together. After the repeated on and off, the top is fitted and screwed down. The treadle wheel no longer rubs away at the side panel thanks to washers and a bit of planing I did to the side.

    I learned a bit about french polishing the shellac yesterday. The bit of linseed oil does help keep the surface workable a WEE bit longer. The process went well until a phone call. One section sat too long, and ...
