Day 1 we found these cute name tags at our tables. (They DID spell my name wrong.) Later in the day, we got the embroidered blocks (shown at the bottom of the pic). The theme of the retreat was "Are We There Yet?". The room was decorated with strings of Mason jar lights and colorful bunting.
Day Two and Three "Gifts"--My Mason contained quilting clips. The little camper is on the cutest card.
We have a beautiful room for the retreat. The lighting in this room, however, is the biggest drawback to this retreat. I know you wouldn't think so, but this is the darkest room in which to sew. With all the windows, you'd think it would be VERY light--not so. Two walls and the ceiling are dark wood. There are few overhead lights, and they aren't very bright. Many of the retreat attendees bring floor lamps. I didn't have a floor lamp, but I used four lights and still felt like I was in the dark.
We had a surprise guest who brought us gummy bears!
I'm already looking forward to next year's retreat!
