QUILTIN' WITH MY SASSY SEWERS
We did it!! We, meaning my sewing/quilting group, the Sassy Sewers, went on our very 1st retreat!! We have evolved from a group of ladies who didn't know each other nor had little in common except for our desire to sew, quilt, or learn to quilt, into a group of ladies with much in
common. Funny, how that can happen, isn't it? My husband, Tractor Man, had heard me complain for over 2 yrs about my need to find a group of ladies to stitch with so his response was finally, "Well, why don't you form your own group?"........AND that's EXACTLY What I Did!! A few well placed announcements in 2 church bulletins, A few phone calls, and a Facebook invitation, and I had a resemblance of a quilting group. One Problem, most of the ladies who came didn't know how to sew and wanted to LEARN HOW to quilt. Ok, Drop back and punt, Jane. You can do this.
That was October 2012....Fast Forward to Jan. 2014 and the following pictures will tell you how things are going!
What a PERFECT spot for a retreat!

God has been good to bring together such a close knit group of ladies and allow us to not only share our love of stitching but of fellowship and friendship too!
