Hi Everyone —
Seven NJNA members were very appreciative of Mally’s Needlepoint Yoga post today! We are attending the Stitcher’s Hideaway retreat at the Publick House in Sturbridge, MA. So we stitched from 9:00 AM until about 9:00 PM today!
Sue C and I drove up on Saturday so that we could make a stop at the Enriched Stitch in Wilton, CT. Sue R joined us there and we purchased threads, sale canvasses, bags, and other goodies.
The retreat started today (Monday) so the two Sues and I toured Old Sturbridge Village on Sunday afternoon. We toured the Towne House and visited the old bank, the weaver, the tavern, the tinsmith, the general store, the shoemaker, the potter, and the candle maker. You can see our weather was gorgeous, even if the streets were a bit muddy!
On Sunday night, we needed a table of ten for all of our NJ contingent which includes several EGA members.
Overnight, it snowed — at least three inches by the time we ventured out. The snow continued all morning.
And, of course, what retreat would be complete without prizes!
Today’s lucky NJNA winners!
I think I’ll go practice my child’s pose!
