Machine Quilting Retreat and Delicious Food!!

Hi Everyone!!

We had a fantastic weekend!  Debby Brown taught our annual Fall Machine Quilting Retreat. We had 14 participants and everyone really enjoyed themselves!  Since our shop here in Pawling is smaller than our old shop in Wappinger Falls, we rented out the Mizzentop School and it was perfect!

Saturday was a full day of machine quilting and teaching AND breakfast, lunch and dinner catered by Brian, a friend of mine who happens to be a culinary graduate!

Between lunch and dinner we had some cheese and crackers and everyone came over to the shop to see what's new and peruse the HandiQuilter wall of fun!

After dinner, while everyone was enjoying their cupcakes as dessert, we had a little show and tell.

Sunday was another fun filled day of great food, company and demonstrations.  On Sunday the class brought in quilts from home that were yet to be quilted to discuss what quilting designs they may want to quilt on them.  One of these was a Cutie Collections Pattern Squared Away done out of the Moda Modern Neutrals Collection.  I love seeing our Cutie Quilts out of different lines of fabric!!

We have been receiving quite a few emails from everyone who attended telling us what a great time they had.  We hope to see them all very soon and cannot wait to see what they quilt up next!

Be sure to check our newsletter next September to see when the Quilting Retreat will be next October!!

If you are looking for a great caterer- be sure to check out Brian.  His food is incredible!

We are headed to Quilt Market in Houston on Thursday - I cannot wait to share all the fun with you next week!
