Preparations are Underway for the May Retreat

Now that we have recovered from the October Retreat, our plans are in full swing for the May Retreat. 

We are pleased to annouce that Pam and Susan of Praiseworthy Stitches will be the instructors for our retreat scheduled for May 26-29, 2011. 

Pam and Susan have been busy creating a beautiful sewing basket with coordinating smalls.  Above is a picture of the basket with the lid attached.  Below is a picture of the 5" band and duponi silk lining.  The title of this project is "Days of Creation".

This project uses Cross Stitches over 1,2 and 4 threads, Algerian Eye, Rhodes Heart, open Herringbone, Satin Stitch, Smyrna Cross, Rice Stitch. They will also be teaching some beading and how to cover threads rings.  This can be seen in the needlebook and scissor fob pictured below.

This all inclusive retreat will be a fun weekend of stitching and suprises.  Marie and I have lots up our sleeves to make this the best weekend of stitching away.  Don't forget, all meals are included as well as an Afternoon Tea at ABC Stitch as well as shopping, shopping, shopping.  For more info and to book your retreat visit New England Stitcher's Retreats.  Any questions feel free to contact me via email and I will see if I can help.

Happy Stitching, Nataly
