2011: What a fabulous retreat we had.  I loved seeing all those smiling faces all the time. We had 79 participants this year an increase of 10 from last year. We kept busy from sunrise until well into the night for some.  We held 15 different classes plus open sewing.  There were 120 door prizes given out from the quilt show vendors, our local shops and the shops along the way to Kerrville.  We played bingo, had an apron parade and was inspired by the show and tell.
