Fat Quarterly Retreat 2013
I am home and have now recovered from Fat Quarterly Retreat!! What a great way to visit with people I met last year, hang with the guild girls and fellow bee peeps, and to meet new people and some of the quilting bloggers I follow! The weekend was a mix of learning, swapping, eating, sewing, drinking and a lot of laughing!
I only have time to sum it up in one post so here goes:
WORKSHOPS & TABLETOPS
|Embroidery with John, Hand quilting with Mandy, Mandy's hands, Flexi-frame pouch with Tacha, Rubber Stamps with Tacha and the chaos of the table at rubber stamps! I also did some doodling with Trudi and I sat at Kerry's Fantasy Fabric Shop as well.|
|Sample Swap - clutch, mini quilt and pincushion. I gave Tea Wallets with a mug and a thumb pincushion.|
|Scrappy Trip Along Strip Swap and Ugly Fabric Swap. No pictures of the FQ swap.|
Big thanks to Kris from Germany for yummy gummy worms, Krista from Canada for Canadian candy and chocolate, Di for these amazing linen fabrics (I love those doggies - looks just like my little dog Jax), Claudia from Germany for my apple zippy pouch and the homespun fabrics, Mary for the texty fabric for my typewriter block [not shown].
|Thank you Kris, Krista, Di, Claudia and Mary|
And a HUGE thank you to the sponsors for donating so much fun stuff!

-Thank you to Shevvy, Helen, Claudia, Lizzy, Nilya for meeting for dinner at Wagamama's on Thursday night.
-Thank you to Amanda and Tammy for having yummy Pizza Express on Friday night after the trip out to The Village Haberdashery for a hot shopping trip! Annie had delicious cupcakes there to keep my sugar levels up so I could shop and be happy!
-I had a delicious burger [no onions] at Byron Burger on Saturday night with Pennie, Kelly, Shevvy, Amanda, Cara, Ruth, Helen and Nathalie
That's all I have time for. I hope to upload to Flickr soon! Hope you enjoyed 2013 FQR!
