April 2013 – Lucky 13

Our retreat theme this year was Lucky 13, reflected in the decorations, the “Lucky 13” mystery quilt project, the “lucky duck” pond for drawing door prize numbers, and in numerous other ways. Although the retreat officially started on Friday afternoon, many of us arrived on Wednesday or Thursday to take advantage of the opportunity for more sewing or shopping time.  A highlight was a group visit to Patchwork Plus in Dayton on Thursday afternoon–many thanks to Phyllis Reeves for accommodating us–followed by dinner at Taste of Thai in Harrisonburg.  Many of us also visited The Quiltery in Fairfield for the first time.
