WELL... as all of you know... Florence is still hanging around and making a mess of everything!
Our retreat in North Carolina at the Black Stallion was cancelled.... we even had to evacuate. Thank God we didn't have a full house yet... ! The staff was there a day early and in the process of cooking, setting up the classroom, etc. when we received the telephone call... in a matter of seconds our dreams were crushed.
So... we packed everything back up (that we had just unpacked) and tried contacting everyone that were all over the United States...some of them even traveling to us... and told them the news. Needless to say - we all were holding back the tears as well as possible.
We had already prepared 15 chickens for barbecuing, made banana pudding, ice cream dessert, etc. and it all went bye-bye.
HOWEVER, we all managed to leave the island safely and we're doing our best to work on a reschedule! So for those of you that were scheduled to attend... once we get a plan into place, we will contact each of you FIRST - then once we can open it up to our other quilters.
Lisa Bongean has many openings in her schedule next year … so keep your fingers crossed!
To continue on with the RETREATS... I wanted to share this one we have coming up!!!!
