Last weekend I had the fortune to attend a quilting retreat at Charlie Elliott Conference Center in Mansfield, GA. It was a wonderful thing to be able to just sit and sew all day long for three straight days! There were ten quilters and four scrapbookers. Great camaraderie, creativity, and productivity. Fun activities included a mini-auction, a basket exchange, and door prizes.
