I have booked a retreat this summer at Over The Rainbow in Seattle, Washington with my aunt. She will be flying in and we are going to shop hop on the drive all the way up there, taking our time and enjoying the drive.
I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally find a retreat that is 1. Not during the school year and 2. Not for guilds only AND 3. Not too far away.
As I prepare for this new retreat adventure, I find myself researching experiences that others have had. I want to know what to bring and see if another quilter has suggestions that I haven't thought of. Then it came to me, I am a blogger now. :) haha I can write about this adventure for others to read and possibly learn something or at least get a little entertainment out of it.
So, I present to you the Going to a Quilt Retreat series.
The posts may change a bit, but here are the ones I have planned:
- What quilt retreat is right for me?
- What to pack for a quilt retreat.
- Snacks to bring to a quilt retreat (because we all know that snacks are ever so important to quilting! )
- Choosing projects for a quilt retreat
- Shop hopping
- Over the Rainbow retreat - my own adventure
- Best retreat tips poll
If you have any suggestions about things I should cover in this series, please let me know.
