Our Fall Stitching Retreat weekend was filled with stitching, chatter, stitching, laughter, more stitching, good eats, and yes, even more stitching! We were joined by 2 new attendees from Texas, 2 from Virginia, 2 from Oregon, 1 from Missouri, Minnesota and many from around the greater Seattle area. The stitchers we treated to two skeins of the new Silken Straw for needlepoint. They had 18 colors to choose from, many just kept adding to their stash. I also had several other treasures to give my stitchers, a beautiful wood inlay-ed box, perfect for storing their new platinum needles. The weekend was filled with lots of good times and new friendships made. I am already making plans for the Winter retreat scheduled for February 6 weekend. As an incentive for you to make your plans early, any person that registers prior to November 15, will be eligible for a drawing to receive 50% off their registration fee! I wanted you all to know first (I did post of the Pacific Northwest Needlepoint Retreat FB page last night), prior to sending out a mass email. Feel free to share this with anyone who you think may be interested in joining. Remember, there are limited seats and I would hate for anyone to miss out.
