Craft Taffy retreat - what a treat!

Corrie & Des, at Quilt Taffy, hosted a retreat in beautiful McCall, ID last week. 
I was so lucky to get to stay the entire week! 
(I was teaching a Lone Star class)
Here are just a few photos that I captured....sit back & enjoy the tour!
 
The theme was "Starry, Starry, Night"...
(You can purchase these beautiful stars here.)
 
These words greeted the guests on the window...
 
 
We had Lone Star quilts hanging on the banister for the guests to see as they arrived.
 
 
Every sewing station was personalized...
 
 
Each bed space had these beautiful goodies waiting for them...
 
 
The "starry" lights were everywhere and these ginger caramels that Corrie made didn't last very long - sooooo delicious!
 
 
Each guest received a schedule and these cute numbered pins which are so handy for every project!
 
 
Cute, cute decorations - love this paper "dot" swag!
 
 
As the guests finish a project, it's hung on the banister for display - a vintage sheet quilt of Shelto's.
 
 
Layers of mint chocolate gooiness.....so incredibly delicious!  Thanks, Des - you're the Master Chef!
 
 
Guests bring piles and piles of potential quilt tops! 
 
 
 Pin cushions - organized by color!
 
 
 
My cute pin cushion & tape measure (thank you, Vicky & Sally) - see the pink umbrellas in the background? 
That's where we ate our dinners outside - so lovely!
 
 
 
This post was all about getting settled in to our "new" surroundings.....there's more, oh, so much more, to come!

  1. Oh that looks like heaven, what a wonderful way to spend a week. I'm guessing the minty triangles didn't last too long!?!

    1. The minty brownies didn't last long at all. And we were all craving them the next day, too!
