For our guild meeting we gathered together at the Library on Friday the 27th, 1 to 9pm and Saturday 8am to 2pm and sewed our little hearts out and watch it snow snow snow outside. Of course it can't really be a great retreat without lots of food and chatter.....Fun Fun
This year Deb Bayles gave those that wanted a Challenge, a pattern and said that we needed to step out of our boxes and challenge ourselves and find a way to change the pattern around.
