    That sounds like a wonderful time. Wish we had something like that around St. Louis.

We went on Thursday afternoon and they only charged us $10 extra. For example: pork chops, homemade rolls, corn salad, fresh steamed cauliflower from the garden, fresh super moist baked potatoes from the garden, tossed greens from the garden, homemade chocolate cake.....and that was just one dinner!!! I love to eat almost as much as I love to sew, probably more!
    the lodge was awesome....sew anytime you want and as late or early as you want to! She is a quilter, awesome quilts hanging all over and on every bed!
    And, to top it all off, this is the first year the owners decided to have a drawing (the grand prize) and I won!!! The prize is free lodging and food the next quilt retreat! I can hardly wait!!!
    Sounds like a quilters dream come true. Where was this retreat held?

    Oh, how do I wish this wasn't so far from me (Louisiana)! This retreat sounds like a real bargain!

    Did the facility plan the retreat or was it someone know to you?

    I really envy you having such a reasonably priced retreat in such great quarters.
    The retreat sponsored by one of my guilds is near $400 for the same length of time. The food is great and the accomodations are wonderful, but alot of us can no longer afford it.

    I don't know where in NH you are, but if you're near Newport you could consider joining the SooNipi Guild (meets 3rd Thursday of the month 10-2 at Sugar River Bank, Rte 10, Main Street, on the lower level).
    They have a retreat coming up in October.

    WOW, I wish there was a retreat like that closer to where I live. That price sounds perfect, not at all expensive. I'd pay that pretty quickly. I might even consider coming up to Montana and join you next year.

    Wow! Sounds like you had a super retreat! I haven't been on one for several years and I want to go on one soon! What a prize. Enjoy! Did you get a lot done on the retreat? I found it so nice to be able to quilt and not worry about meals, laundry, etc!!!!

    I LOVE to go to quilting retreats.
    I have gone twice.
    They offer them about twice a year and I would go every time but can't afford.
