Craft Taffy Retreat 2013 - Part 1

Every retreat needs a theme. 
And ours was no exception. 
I am a
Sewing Machine!

We gathered in the beautiful, woodsy, 
lakeside retreat of McCall, Idaho. 
An amazing cabin with
plenty of room for sewing.
Sewers were greeted by lanyards 
on a big polka-dot fabric wrapped
 Dr. Seuss tree.

Even before everyone arrived,
we had plenty of sewing machines

Even in cookie form :).

Stacey, our incredible chef,
kept us well fed. 
Soup and rolls welcomed us on
 a cool Wednesday evening, along
with chocolate mousse. 

Leela led a fun
 exchange of "Love Gifts",
 just a way to get to know
everyone a little better.

It was great to meet new friends and
 renew last year's acquaintances.
to be continued......
