Quilt Retreat ~ Day 1 At The Strong House Inn

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday was arrival day at the quilt retreat that I am teaching at in the Strong House Inn in Vermont.

First, I must say that I am in LOVE with this inn... it is not only gorgeous, it is HUGE and the owners are the friendliest people... oh and the best cooks too!!

Here the quilter's are arriving from all over to set up... we have quilter's from Canada, NY, RI, and VT!

Yesterday was a more get to know you kind of day, with a little instruction.  Mary, the owner, served some appetizers prior to dinner.

She made ALL of us quilter's feel right at home.  

A fabulous dinner of Coq Au Vin was served and very delicious.

Here is the quilting crew getting ready to eat a wonderful pear salad.

Who can resist dessert?

This is our menu for the weekend!  I think I will need to be rolled out of here.  YUM!

Where we will eat breakfast.

My room... I love it!

I am excited to start teaching tomorrow.  It is full steam ahead, stay tuned to watch the beautiful quilts progress.
