    On the 7th of October, 7 friends and I are going to a Quilt Retreat at a place called Miss B'Haven which is located in north central Ontario for 4 days. The autumn colours should be beautiful then. I'm taking 5 things to work on (1 hand quilting, 1 hand applique and 3 piecing) - I don't want to get bored "ya right" :roll: My job now is to get the pieces required cut and sorted - To me thats the hardest part of quilting :(

    Anyway, here's a picture of my stuff before I get started - Wish me luck

    My little sewing group has been on 4 retreats and planning the 5th one for March. What fun! I don't think you have any chance of getting bored.

    Oh my. I don't think boredom will be a problem. If your retreat is anything like ours, we laugh and eat and sew. So much fun.

    You got a lot of cutting to do, so good luck on that. Get crackin' girl!! LOL Have loads of fun. :D :D :D

    Oh how fun! Take plenty of chocolates and great music. It looks like you are going to be sewing like a house on fire with that many projects. Wow!
    Have fun and I wish you lots of giggles and hugs. :D

    What fun!! I often think we all should try at least 1!:)And, I thought of starting a thread of where do you retreat to??! That way we can find out the really good ones. I'd almost wish you could RV to one so you could really 'load' up on your stuff and go!! Then if you did that, where would the excuse to shop be?:)You will have to tell all!! I know I'd love to hear about it and if you would do it again! Skeat

    Ours is done through our LQS. Check with yours, if you have one, and see if they have a retreat.

    Our LQS does a retreat once a year and what they do is go to a hotel and sew in a big room for 2 nights...that is it. I can't justify taking the load to go plus the expense for doing what I could at home. No vendors....nothing. Just take what you are working on and go...not sure that is a real retreat or not??

    My mom and I are going to one in Ohio the first weekend in November. This will be our third! We've started going to a different state each year - so far, it has been fun! I haven't hardly even begun thinking about fabric... Good luck with yours and have fun!

    I don't think you will get bored. A group of my friends go to at least 2 retreats a year. For 2 years I have taked a zig zag puzzle that is a quilting theme. This year I am taking quiltopoly. Plus we do a lot of talking, reading, and of course eating.
