Hi everyone-

I reserved our place in 2010 for Wednesday, March 10 through Monday, March 15. The price is $330We will be at the Quilter's Cabin in Tomball, TX once again: http://quilterscabin.com/.

Each retreater will be asked to purchase, prepare and serve one of the following: A single Brunch, Dinner, or Dessert for the entire group. We will go out for one dinner, just like we did this year. And again, we will have a shop-hop outing in combination with dinner out!

I will provide a Mystery Quilt design for the group to work on. You will, of course, be free to bring your own project if you prefer. Cutting instructions will be posted in advance. Of course, The Quilt and Needle will provide fabric kits for your shopping pleasure, but those will also be an optional purchase.

oh and on an additional note to that, I have at least one possibly two (haven't tested it out to see if it's still in decent working order) machines that I could bring for those flying so they won't have to bring theirs.

Yep, they are Jenn. If we decide we want to go somewhere else instead, or in addition to these, that is great with me!! You ladies just let me know what you want to do!! And yes, a money order would be great.

Sherry!! So glad you and Nikki will join us!! You should send your deposits as soon as possible, as your spot is held "officially" with that deposit. All of the ladies who attended last year made their deposits at the retreat last March for next March. Clear as mud?

The first shop we went to last year was great. Friendly staff and great selection. We stimulated the economy pretty well over there. The second place had some nice stuff, but they were more focused on knitting, and I know Milica wanted some FQs of several bolts and they wouldn't cut them for her. We didn't spend as long there. I'll go wherever though, just curious if there are other shops in the area. I'll see what I can find.

How do you have us pay for this? Just send you the balance at once, or in increments by certain due dates, etc.? Ashley's gonna be ticked she won't get to come but...mommy needs some adult time, lol! I'm trying to talk my mom into coming with me and getting my step dad to watch Jacob. He's the only one I'd need someone for. She'd fit right in with you all. I'm *this* close to getting her registered here....

Jess--

Would you please put Laura and me down. I really wanted to come to the last retreat but my vacation didn't work out right.

This time work will get plenty of notice and as long as spring break isn't close should work out.

Thanks!!!

Genia

Planning on it and can't wait!  Nikki and I are both very excited! We both are having a great time here and can't wait to meet all of you crazy ladies! She has never been away from both of her kids at the same time for that long, so it will be great mommy time. Plus, she and I have never done anything like this together for this amount of time! Quality mother daughter time! And she is the one who said, "Mom, we have to do this!" 

So, see you all in Tomball, 2010! (And Nikki's birthday is March 18th so we will be celebrating while we are there!)

CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

Okay, that fills us up for certain!! Hehe. We may have to look for another retreat facility next year, with more space. We shall see. Perhaps we want to have 2 retreats per year so that we can stay in Tomball but have more folks? Hmmm... Just wouldn't be the same without everyone there....

I did speak with Diane at the Quilter's Cabin and she has a trundle bed that we can use for number 13, no problem. Also, there are extra tables that are in the big closet that we can use as sewing tables if we need to. I will put the Q&N fabrics in the living room or somewhere else so that we will have the entire sewing room. I know we can make room so everyone can come and enjoy it!!

Ladies, don't forget to send your retreat deposits my way if you haven't already. I will try to keep the list up to date.

Oh, I am so excited!!!!!

And a birthday for Nikki while we are there... that means cake!!

Jess, how do we pay the balance off to you? Do you have deadlines for installments, or just as long as it's all to you by xx date, or what?

You can send payments or pay it all at once. Please try to pay the balance by February 1, 2010. Cool?
