The First "My Time" Retreat in Auburn!!!

I have been holding retreats in McCloud, California for seven years now and needed to find another facility to hold more retreats.

The Mercy Center in Auburn, California was highly recommended by many quilting groups that already have retreats there and we all fell in love!

Our retreat room is VERY spacious with oodles of room for the 20 retreaters that attend.  We had lots of natural lighting from the windows on two walls and everyone got their very own large table.

We had a whole separate area on the other side of the room for design walls, basting/marking tables and supplies.  

We even have our own in-house kitchen complete with refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, freezer, etc!

I LOVED watching all the quilts being created during the week....great eye candy :)

We always start our mornings with show and tell but we ended our week with a VERY special show and tell.  Another group was meeting at the facility during our time there and they came up for show and tell.  It was like having our own "awards ceremony" where everyone got to strut their stuff and show off their beautiful quilts.

I'm really looking forward to our next retreat in Auburn in July and the next three in 2016.  One retreater requested that I start doing morning instruction lectures for those that want it.  I thought it was a GREAT idea since I am no longer conducting my extended workshops.  This will give me the opportunity to continue to share great information.

In case anyone is interested in joining us for the July 9-12th retreat I have two openings!  

Hugs, Cindy :)

That workshop venue is totally amazing!!! It has EVERYTHING!!!! Being able to 'share' with the other group was a huge fun 'perk'!
Attending one of your retreat workshops would be a dream for sure but impossible to fit into my "schedule" at this point------and I thought "retirement" would bring me 'all the time in the world' to do these things!!!! LOL! As I was informed before leaving work, I would be busier than ever during this time......wonderfully correct!!!
I'm thoroughly enjoying your Craftsy teachings and your blog and have many vintage linen projects completed thanks to your inspirational directions!!!!
