I will learn how to add events to the events page, but at the moment I thought I would list it here in case you were planning a little fall getaway and wanted some great stitching event to go to! <grin> seems funny to see the word 'fall' with the spring tulip picture! I took these pictures a few years ago and I always mean to show you some pictures I take in the different places I go and finally a few years late..... but fun to post in the season! These were taken in Paris, ON. As you know we leave for the JDD Hangin' Loose Hawaii cruise next week Wednesday!!! as Judy Bradford of Cruise Ship Centers said to me this morning " I think I can smell the sunscreen already" that is how excited we are to be going! Stitchers we have some fun stuff for you and I look forward to sharing them with you.
In July it's off to celebrate some patriotic spirit in Sturbridge, Massachusetts. Check with Sue at Stitcher's Hideaway -www.stitchershideaway.com to see the info on this middle of the week summer retreat.
The end of August (Aug 31 and Sept 1) brings a trip over the pond to the UK - and an event in a little town close to the coastal town of Ravenglass, Cumbria at Fobbles http://www.fobbles.co.uk/- a charming shop with supplies for samplers, embroidery, patchwork and beading. Come join us in the lake district and see what Jeannette has come up with for this sampler class. The following weekend (Sept 6,7) if the UK isn't in your itinerary come over the North Sea to Roden in the north of Holland to De Handwerk Boetiek- http://dehandwerkboetiek.tripod.com/index.html - and join Annemiek at her shop with Jeannette in a Dutch Sampler class!
At the end of September (Sept 28, 29) it is off to Ohio and Crafy Ewe's - http://www.thecraftyewe.net/ weekend retreat!! Carol has the project posted so check it out! and I look forward to going to her little spot in the world and stitching with you all!
For our last time out it will be for the Dyeing to Stitch - http://www.dyeing2stitch.com/index.php- retreat (Oct 3-5) in Virginia Beach. What fun we will have. It is always a special weekend and I look forward to that too and seeing the many friends made over the years.
So you must come and stitch on a weekend somewhere! Aren't we lucky to have such a wonderful hobby that lets us enjoy people, friends and places!
