Mystery Retreat

Last weekend I hosted Fabric Expressions first annual “Mystery Retreat at the Quinberry Lodge in the mountains above Black Hawk, which is about a hour west of Denver.

A group of 12 ladies spent a long weekend together sewing, staying up late, laughing and of course eating.

Before the retreat began everyone was giving a list of supplies to complete the mystery quilt.  You did not have to make the quilt if  you did not want to.   I gave out the clues once everyone had arrived and had there sewing machines set up.  Clues were given throughout the weekend and the mystery was solved Saturday night.  Many people finished the mystery and were planning the borders before the left on Sunday.

There was time in between the clues to work on other projects, Everyone’s sewing machine got a workout, Everyone one was sewing early in the morning till late at night.

One of my favorite parts is the food.  Everyone brought snacks to share and I made the meals.  I love snacks.  There was also wine and margarita in the evening for those who like that kind of thing.

My brain is already planning next years retreat.  I have my reservation for 2016
