Stitching Getaway


November 19, 2007

This weekend Knowledge and Needles and Butler Creek Country Inn hosted the 4th annual Stitching Getaway. This year we went for two nights of fun and stitching instead of the traditional one overnight stay. It was lots of fun and I must say some of us even got somewhat giddy at times. I, for one, am not used to staying up into the wee hours of the morning...
Here are some photos...I don't know how I missed getting pictures of Sylvia and Rebecca but they were there too...stitching up a storm

The only bad news about the weekend is the fact that the B & B has been sold so we won't be able to go there next year. Our wonderful hosts Burke and Ken are retiring from the business and the new owners are going to be using the beautiful house as their home so it will no longer be a Bed and Breakfast. Judie suggested that they include a clause in the Conditions of Sale that the new owners would be vacate the house one weekend next November so we could use it but alas the papers had already been signed so we will have to make other arrangements!

That was a most excellent weekend with kudos to Dan for an awesome lunch - and to all who brought way to much food. It was great that we actually got some stitching done.
Thank you Ann!!!!!

Oh, Ann it sounds like a perfect weekend. The photos are great. How sad that Butler Creek will not be there next year.
