    Lightbulb Gauging interest - get-together at a retreat in No. Indiana?

    I've located a retreat being held early April, 2019 in Northern Indiana Amish country - Shipshewana. Thought it might be a great opportunity for some of us to finally meet one another. Straight sewing - no formal classes (we could always do our own thing.) 49 open spots now ... we would be among other quilters who may or may not be familiar with M*. I'm definitely planning on going.

    Sewing room available early am to late pm so you can sew as much as you want whenever you want. 3 1/2 days of sewing at your own 6 ft table. Bring your own machine & tools. Estimate 4 nights lodging and sewing room access would be $300 (double occupancy); $500 single; Subtract $50 if accompanied by a non-sewer. MEALS NOT INCLUDED.

    I know it may be too far in advance for some of you to plan ... but if you are interested please pm me so I can send the specifics and links. And if you've been to one there recently please share your experience.

    Sounds like a very good deal, much like the Hoe Down retreats we used to have in Lancaster, PA. I've been to Shipshewana area and it's lovely and lots of quilt shops.

    Only because it was over 100 miles out of our way.

    I would love to revisit Shipshewana, got there last spring but unfortunately we were with a couple who are not at all interested in quilting so was just able to stop in quickly to 2 shops.

    Nice of you to explain ... but back to the same question ... Have you ever been to a retreat there so you can share your experience? Interested in this one? I know you are closer in Ohio.

    PM me if you'd like more info.

    Thanks Astatoo. The Cotton Corner and Yoder's are great and Davis Mercantile hosts Lolly's and Lolly's Downstairs. Great places to fabric shop.
