Sew Simple Stitched retreat 2017 (day 1)

This retreat was sooo much fun!  And the following is documentation of the "shenanigans" =D

I left my home and drove a few minutes to my friend's house
to load her things into my car, and we drove off about 10:30am
Wednesday morning.  Going southeast, we headed to...
 

Midway, Utah and a short visit at
My Girlfriend's Quilt Shoppe.  This is a
truly fun and unique little quilt store.
 


 
You can find a very good selection of great fabrics, books,
patterns and notions, along with a Babylock sewing
machine shop.  It's well worth the time to visit. =)
 
 
It was a beautiful sunny day to drive the remaining 2+ hours
to Roosevelt, the retreat's location and our condo.  I wish I
had some pictures to share of the landscape.  There were
long stretches of winding flat lands and rolling hills
covered in snow. 
 
This was the entrance to the event center the day we
arrived.  The quilt display was changed regularly to
reflect each day's classes.
 
Awesome retreat gift bags waiting to be in the hands
of each lucky retreat attendee as they check in
Thursday morning! 
 

These were our lunch and dinner tables in the
foreground.  A little bit further back were rows of
seats set up for the trunk shows to be given on Thursday
and Friday evenings

There were many quilts hanging all around the center,
all gorgeous.  I didn't get pictures of all of them.

more quilts on display

and more

and more  =D
 
 
We checked into the Winteron Suites, which happen to be
just a short walk from the events center pictured above.
 
 
Our townhome/condo was a 3 bedroom with each room
having it's own full bath.  Also, there is a living room with
2 leather couches, a fully equipped kitchen, and so many other
amenities.  It was super clean too =).
 
 
~ to be continued... tomorrow... more pictures of
the following days, sewing, classes, etc
