    Lake Huron Thumb Area Quilters Retreat 2011

    First, A WONDERFUL time was had by all. I would like to thank everyone that made this event a very special and enjoyable experience. Camp staff, as well as campers were a joy!! Here is a link to some of the pictures taken during the event. http://photos2.walmart.com/walmart/t..._NAME=walmart/

    Attendees: Please feel free to post your own pictures and info on the event in this thread. We have the camp booked for the same weekend next year, and I hope to see all of you there again. Please keep in touch, I would love to get together in the meantime, if we are ever in the same area.

    I got a blank screen first time I clicked, second time was the charm. Looks like a great weekend. I've never been to a quilt retreat, looks like a great deal of variety oof projects were worked on. Maybe next year.

    Looks like you all had such a great time!! I saw my quilting buddy in several pics and she definitely looked like she was having fun. Maybe I'll try to go if you have another one next year. I'll just have to make sure I prepare to handle my fibro.

    I am getting great reviews from my friends that attended. They said that Onalee was a great hostess and organizer. I am so sad I was unable to attend, but glad I spread the word to the others.

    The only negative was the smoke from the fireplace. Is there something that can be done for next year?

    I have attended retreats where we have learned what to fix for the following year.

    I will mark this time frame on my calendar to attend.

    We discussed things to work on and the fireplace was he main thing. We have booked the same weeked in 2012. We have a couple of ideas to help with the fireplace. We also talked about those that cannot do the cabins, (fibro). There are several B&B s in the area, we can check on that option , as well. We all had a great time, I for one will be waiting impatiently for next year

    Thanks, I want to attend next year and will bring other people. Some dropped out because I did even when I told them to go and have a good time.

    I looked at all the pic. Looked great.

    It looks like everyone had a great time. I would love to attend next year. Life got in the way this year, so I couldn't attend.
