As you can probably tell by now, Dyeing to Stitch/ R&R Linens along with all the expert instructors/designers did a fantastic job at this years retreat... This retreat is offered every 2years... So, I'll be saving up again in hopes of attending next time! They spared no expense, every detail was thought through and some if the nicest people I have ever met were in attendance~ Hats off to Ann and Pat!
Nan Lewis of Threadwork Primitives could not be at the retreat, however a personally stitched handmade goodie of hers was... And... It was one of the door prizes at the Grande finale banquet..... And... Well... I squealed when my name was called.... Really? Me..??
... The inside lining has a handwritten commemorative label.... This is a treasure I will cherish forever!!
Each of us, all 130 of us, received a wonderful Liberty Hill hand painted wooden box.... Gorgeously painted for this retreat celebration~
The detail in the painting was amazing..
Even the inside was etched...a good size box to hold all kinds of stash... It is magnificent!!
There were retreat exclusives given to us at our classes.... And each kit had every single thing you'd need to make your treasure..
A darling piece that mounts in a Wilton tart tin...
Finally, what's a retreat without a little stash shopping.... The Boutique was LOADED with goodies to buy.... I did my part~ :)
The Purple Thread is a new designer for me.... Her designs are wonderful!
So, that's the recap of the Dyeing to Stitch retreat.... I had never been and now I'm hooked~ Next post, I will share one of those stitches that I have completed..... Until then, I'll be in the craft room getting YOUR finishes completed and out the door.... Enjoy your weekend everyone~
