    Default Retreat Center?

    I saw that on the blog post for today that you mentioned a retreat center. Can it be that you are opening a retreat center for quilters to come for a weekend or week, learn stuff, sew, quilt, drink wine, without family, husbands, pets, phones or distractions. Is this what you mean?

    Please say yes.

    They are building what Al referred to as a Sleep and Sew.

    So, depending on who people bring along, the husbands, kids, pets and phones could certainly be questionable.

    And, I would also venture to say that wine is not on the list of acceptables in this establishment. Correct me if I am wrong.

    Christmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. If we think on these things, there will be born in us a Savior and over us will shine a star sending its gleam of hope to the world."

    Ooo, good point. I didn't even think about that, but you are probably right.

    The blog did say retreat, but I also do not think any kind of alcohol would be appreciated.

    This sounds just like a quilting ge away weekend that my friends and I try to schedule a couple times a year. We just may have to travel to M* for one.
