28 ladies and one gentlemen enjoyed our third annual Fabulous Fall Fibre Retreat at the Hillsdale House Inn in Annapolis Royal this past weekend.
Lots of laughs and well-deserved down time for project work punctuated with walks, shopping, sipping and show and tell.
Retreaters enjoyed the Saturday Farmers and Traders market, the SOFAAR exhibit at ARCAC, the O’Dell museum crazy quilt exhibit and so much more.
We will be keeping you posted for 2020!

Tuesday, July 30th, is World Embroidery Day and we are going to celebrate!
From 1 to 3 pm we will be out in force to demo all kinds of stitching.
The Courtyard store at 212 St-George St in Annapolis Royal has graciously accepted to host us outside if the weather is fine.
If the weather is not fine, we will gather in the market square under the protection of the stalls.
Please bring a project to work on and some pieces for show.
If you can bring your own chair, that would be wonderful.
We would love to see you there.
World Embroidery Day began in 2011 with the Swedish Embroiderer’s guild. You can read the manifesto here with this link.
