Retreat Number 12

Our 12th annual retreat is now a thing of the past. There was shopping, eating, laughing and lots and lots of quilting.  As always our retreat is filled with members willing to share their knowledge and expertise.  So there was lots of learning going on as well.  Many thanks to all who came and made this a great retreat weekend !
