Alpine Quilt Retreat

If you missed the Fall Harvest Alpine Quilt Retreat, don't sweat!  There will be another in the Spring.  Check the Alpine Quilt Retreat website for more information to come!  Here's a peak at what you missed (and what you have to look forward to)...

The accommodations were a quilt lovers dream!  Each room displayed character, charm, unique vintage furnishings and beautiful quilts.

Each day, quilting classes were taught, cooking demonstrations shared and accessories, such as button rings were made.  Access to a large quilting workroom was available for round-the-clock quilting, complete with large tables, sewing machines and irons.  Everything a hard-core quilter needs.

As mentioned in an earlier post, I was in charge of the cooking demonstrations.  These quick, 30 minutes classes gave quilters a break from sewing as well as a good bite to eat.  On the menu...

Buttermilk Scones

Creamy Butternut Squash Soup.

Sunday Dinners - Handcrafted Home

Sunday Dinners are were a problem at my house. 6 people sat at the dining room table, 4 people on bar stools at the counter and 8 people sitting at the breakfast nook. If you happen to be the last person through the food line, there's standing room only.
