Happy Birthday to your granddaughter who's 13 today! What a blessing! Love your patterns some of my favorite. Hope you have an extra special day celebrating!

I hope Grace has a beautiful Birthday. What a beautiful name too BTW! As for retreats the main reason I attend is to have some time without the daily interruptions working my craft with some friends. A great time for one on one companionship all the while meeting new friends with shared passions.

Happy Birthday Grace!! Have a wonderful day!

There are so many reasons to like retreats. Retreats are uninterrupted hours away with sewing friends, or soon to be friends. The sharing of what we know and learning new ideas and techniques we are not familiar with, seeing the work of others, is an experience you will not forget. A retreat with a teacher is an added bonus as they share their specialty or introduce you to something new in the industry. As the retreat winds down, you return home with renewed enthusiasm for your craft.

Paula said...

So excited about your upcoming events!! Trying to figure out how I can make it to the Barn Event! My wheels are turning !!

Leona said...

Happy birthday Grace. I hope your ear infection clears up soon. I don't have the money to attend retreats but I think the best thing would be being inspired by others projects and making new friendships.

Lori L said...

I look forward to getting my quilting inspiration sparked by seeing all the projects everyone else is working on and drooling.

Kristin Gestsdottir said...

I feel like I'm a lucky person because I have the luxury of spending every Wednesday at my friend's Wool Studio (Jan Peckenpaugh - My Little House in Katy, Texas). I meet there with a lovely group of ladies and we work in wool, punch, rug hook or cross stitch!
I'd love to go to a proper retreat, maybe one day. Happy birthday Grace! My Holly will be 13 in couple of weeks :).

Claire said...

Wow, already celebrating lucky 13! How exciting and I hope Grace has a fabulous day. Ear infections are so painful. Sure hope you are better soon. Love all your great designs, Stacy. Thanks for the updates and chance to win.

Clairellen said...

Hi! As mom of 4 and grandma to 10, I know that children are our best gift from God. Age 13 is very interesting! Hope you feel better.

Donna G. said...

Autumn in the Country sounds like so much fun!

How exciting to be 13. That is a wonderful year. I raised 8 kids so I sure know about 13! ;-)
Hope you start feeling better!

annita flatland said...

Happy Birthday Grace, it's a GREAT day! My birthday, too. It's cold here, but the sun is shining!! What I like about retreats: I get to spend it with my best friends (my sisters) and now nieces. It's like a weekend slumber party. Have a super day and Birthday.

Linda Collins said...

Happy Birthday to Grace. Hope she has a wonderful day. Love retreats where you get to meet some new friends.

marie said...

Happy Birthday Grace. Love the patterns.

wendy said...

Happy birthday to your daughter and I hope your ear is better soon.

quilter47 said...

Happy 13th! What a special event for both mother and daughter. I love retreats because I get a lot done on my own time frame and I get to spend one on one time with some of my best quilting buddies.

Gayle said...

Hey, today is my mom's birthday too! My favorite part of a retreat is spending quality time with like minded people - so uplifting!

Susanb-m said...

Happy Grace ! Happy Birthday! This is the best blog site going!

Happy birthday to your daughter! My own youngest is now 20, and I'm sure I still treat her as if she were 5. She'll be going for her cap and gown today in preparation for graduation from college come May. It's been a long four years and she's more than ready. She's grown up in our quilt shop (we bought it when she was 9) so I understand your comment about your daughter not being into wool. Mine isn't really into fabric, but boy can she do embroidery work. Right now she prefers handwork to machine work because it's portable and she can take it to school with her. Like you said, I'm hoping that one of these days she'll decide machines aren't all that bad and piecing together a quilt is doable without school to keep her busy.

Hope you can get your ear problems straightened out soon. I know you have to be miserable.

rebecca said...

I love learning something different at a retreat, and getting away from home for a couple of days. time spent just for me......

LesQuilts said...

Hi Stacy! Thank you again for your generosity! E best thing about retreats for me is learning from other people! Colour choices, designs, techniques, sewing table tips, notions, etc! Loving the BOM blocks! Drooling to attend the Barn Retreat! Take care, Leslie

Sandi said...

Stacy I'm glad you are continuing to improve, thanks so much for your generous give always!

I hope to come down to the barn event in September, it sounds like fun!

Michelle said...

My favorite part is the whole thing! LOL I really love having hours and hours to sew, I love visiting with other ladies who understand my passion, and I love the sharing and inspiration that takes place. I love all of it!

Jackie Thompson said...

Happy Birthday!! It's my birthday TOO!!!...not 13th but 58th anniversary of MY 13th birthday. Have a wonderful day!

Marsha said...

Happy Birthday Grace! Thirteen is such a special birthday, a teenager! Hope you are feeling better, too. It is no fun being sick. Have a great day!

Miccosukee said...

Congrats on having your own line of fabrics! And a big Happy Birthday to Grace who at 13 is officially a teenager! Would love to attend your Barn event, but the drive from north Florida is bit long for me. Best wishes on all your wonderful projects!

Happy Birthdat Grace. Hope your ear gets better soon. You have been through a lot . I have been sewing since 7th grade, then started quilting in 1986. I have 2 daughters and neither one sew, they are both in their 50's. Do you think theiri is hope ?

Nancy in Oregon said...

A Very Happy 13th Birthday to Grace. What a wonderful day to become a teenager. So many great days to come, Grace. Always stay a good girl, and the world will be your oyster. We're all girls, only some of us have wrinkles! Take care of yourself, Stacy, and get completely well. Spring is coming!

Julie said...

Happy birthday Grace and hoping you feel better soon! Love your patterns and your current BOM...Thanks!

Gwynette in NW Arkansas said...

I've never been to a retreat, but I love workshops because its spending time sewing with friends and usually learning a new technique.
My granddaughter just turned 13 so I know you and your daughter are stepping down a new path!! Enjoy!!

Mary Ellen said...

Take care of yourself, Stacy! You might need a tube in your ear! :-)

Diane Wyte said...

Hope Grace (my mom's name and I love it!!) has a wonderful birthday
My favorite part of classes and retreats is the teacher - I love learning all she/he has to impart. I love it when it's with wool too :)- Desserts are fine, but the teacher sticks with you even better!

Kathy said...

Happy Birthday, Grace! The best thing about retreats for me is meeting new people and making new quilty friends. I've met some really nice people from different parts of the country and we're able to keep in touch via blogs and emails after the event.

BJK said...

Hope that you are feeling better soon!

Kathy H said...

Happy birthday to Grace. I love getting lots of sewing done but my favorite part is the laughter with friends.

Jennie in GA said...

Hope you are feeling better. My favorite part of a workshop is all of the tips I get from the teacher as well as the other participants.

Candee said...

My favorite is all that time to sew & stitch with no chores or meals to cook. I also love hanging out with all those kindred spirits!

Marlene said...

Glad you're on the mend. I hope you all enjoy the Birthday celebrations for your daughter.
You are very generous to do this free drawing every Friday....WOOHOO!

Donnette Osborn said...

Ty for your wonderful patterns!

Marlene Sheppard said...

Happy Happy Birthday Grace. Hope she has a wonderful day. I think my favorite thing about a retreat is getting to spend some uninterrupted time for sewing and spending quality time with some great friends. Can't beat either of those two.
Thanks Marlene from Utah.
p.s. I love the pattern I received in the mail today.

Karen said...

I love the dedicated sewing time without the distractions of home. Happy Birthday to Grace!

Cathy W said...

I've never been to a retreat. Hope to go to one some day. Have taken a few classes. Lucky me. Even had to join a guild to take a class by Lisa Bongean. I had to drive 80 miles to get to the class, didn't know a soul there, and almost turned around and went home. So glad I didn't leave. Wonderful class, great ladies there. Quilters are so fun. I love the fellowship and learning something new. And Happy Birthday Grace.
