And I hope to see you, too, and take one of your classes. NYC must be a shock after the peacefulness of PT. Heck, yeah.

Glad you are back with all of that creative energy spinning around you. Looks like it was a super fun time.

Alma, thanks for sharing your photos and memories! So do I really say "heck yeah!" that much?!! (And I have such a potty mouth ... I'd think I was saying hell instead of heck!) Anyway, I really enjoyed the whole thing, and it was so great to talk with you. Next time, I'm gonna come with a big bag of "trades," too. I loved that sharing spirit.
Make sure you propose a crochet class for next year! I'm starting to save my pennies NOW.
Big hugs,
Judy

You have made me definetly want to go next year. I live in the area, but have a hard time getting away from the family for a whole weekend. How wonderful to be in such an encouraging environment.

That class was everything i expected and more, keep sharing it with us, Alma, it couldnt of been more perfect with it cold outside and us all cozy inside with our sewing machines. Angelica

LOL, loved reading this.
It reminds me of how I felt the first time I went to a retreat!
It is very spiritual in a family feeling sort of way.
