2009 retreat

April 10, 2011

I think by now you get what we do at retreat. Our retreats have always started on friday night with a trunk show. This is where we show what we have done that year, or inspirations. We also have show and tell where the attendee’s get to show off their stuff! This paticular year we sent them a didgital file with our bmd logo and they were to take a picture of it somewhere unique, some where they had been on their travels or a favorite spot in town…Then we had a little slide show with their pictures. Above is a picture of a corsage some of our “Portage Girls” had made for our evenings festivities! Even adorned with our fabric!!

This year our theme was a favorite place. Myra and I had taken on the challenge of each designing our own project with the inspiration of our favorite place. My them was “country lane” and her’s was “Longwood”. One of Myra’s favorite places in the world is Pennsylvania and Longwood gardens. My favorite place is my place. We both chose a block or blocks that reminded us of those places and created projects around them. These patterns are still  available in our shop.

So what do you think? Don’t our retreat’s look like a lot of fun? We would love you to come and visit us at our next retreat.
