NOTYQ Guild Retreat 2010

Well, what another fantastic retreat...the organizers need to be congratulated, they put a lot of work into these weekends and it is fully appreciated by all those who attend - thank you also to the ladies who made our block keepers - it was a treat.

From Friday 6th August through to Monday 9th August, around 75 ladies descended on Myrniong for our annual guild retreat. The room was buzzing with greetings and sewing machines already busy right from the start.

 A wonderful few days of sewing, eating and chatting. Catching up with friends and being able to leisurely enjoy each others company. Not to mention the sewing of quilts, wall hangings, toys and even knitting.
It is fascinating to walk the room and see the range of quilts being made. Quilting has such a wide theme base - traditional, like the double wedding ring being made here by Christine - have a look at her achievements on her blog, to the latest crazes.

The energy and talents of these ladies is amazing. The show n tell on Sunday was awe inspiring just to see how much work was achieved. We even did our bit for the Victorian economy - around $6,500 was spent on the way there.
Thank you again for another fantastic retreat - only another 52 weeks until next year - where do I sign up.
Happy Sewing, Jennifer

Much talking and laughter, need a break from our retreat, to recover. Was wonderful to catch up with everyone. To view there magnificent quilts, wall hangings etc. Hoping to attend next years, even if it means jumping on a plane to get there.
