Carol Lou, how smart to call this a Mini Quilting Vacation and planning in advance so you can make it happen! Smart, girl!
Threads of Time Quilt Shop and Retreat Center is a wonderful little place. I have retreated there many times and made wonderful friends along the way. It’s handy to have the quilt shop attached for all your quilting needs and wishes!! You’ll find everything you need to enjoy your overnight stay, linens,etc. you will need to bring your own toiletries. They provide blow dryers and curling irons. I like to take my favorite pillow and a quilt to cover my bed. The kitchen is fully equipment EXCEPT for an oven. No stovetop either. Keep that in mind when planning meals. There’s plenty of refrigerator space- the group will be assigned their own frig. A gorgeous flower garden is out back for patio eating and grill(provided). It’s a wonderful getaway with friends and a chance to make new ones!! I always learn something new!! I hope you will take this opportunity to fellowship and get some quilting done along the way!!
