This hotel had been buzzing with Quilters for the past 10 days… 3 separate groups have set up in the conference room, machines whirring late into the night.
There is a tray of pastries (or maybe donuts) on the bench, and the conversation flows as sweet as the fresh brewed coffee.
Our retreat was first, next was a group of friends who come every month or so and book in to the hotel and quilt.
Now it's a group making charity quilts…
What a hoot…. the hotel is really accommodating, the rooms are large and reasonably priced. They even have a fridge and small utility bench, just big enough for a large cutting board.
Without the interruptions of daily life at home the ladies quilt up a storm.
There is no "honey, can you get me a coffee"…..
Just coffee, cake and quilting….at your leisure, what a way to go, these ladies have got it right.
