OUR WINTER RETREAT
This is Miss Mary's in Indiana. Will be leaving for this retreat on the 21st and will have 5 glorious days of fellowship, laughter and lots of quilting activity.

Isn't this a neat place? We have enough room for about 12 sewing machines (cramped but adequate). We occasionally blow a few fuses. We sleep 6 upstairs and 3 downstairs. There is a kitchen and we all take turns preparing a meal. The day campers come and go at all times of the day. It is a blast.


Convenient quilt store next door. This old church has been turned into a quilt store and is right next door. How neat is that!!!! The same people own both places and really cater to us quilters.

I am counting the hours till I get on that plane and head to a wonderful retreat with my good friends. The only thing that will make it extra special is if we have a nice snow while I am there - not a lot, just enough to make it beautiful for a few days and satisfy my snow fix for the year.

I just recently found your blog. I live in Indiana, and was wondering where is Mary's Place and the church that was turned into a quilt shop. Several of my friend and I go on quilt shop trips and this sounds like an interesting place to go.

Thank you
Carroll
