Thank you to our Spring Retreat Attendees!!!

Yes, I know this is my first post of 2014 - where does the time go?

We just finished our Spring 2014 Retreats and all of us at the shop would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to our attendees!!!!  We appreciate the wonderful gifts and kind
notes that you sent us - we are so happy that you all enjoyed your weekend!! The cookies were delicious!! And such a surprise!!
We had TADSAW as our charity for the Spring Retreats. We raised a total of $730.00 from both retreats. A BIG thank you to Louise for the pretty afghan that was also given away as a prize to help raise money for TADSAW. Cecilia's will match the donations from the retreats - so we will be sending a check for $1460.00 to TADSAW!!! Thank you all for your generosity!!

We would like to ask your feedback on this subject............"A Simply Stitchin' Retreat" or as Amy calls it "The Bare Naked Retreat". It is basically a "no frills" weekend. We are offering this because of several requests - a lot of ladies don't need the meal cards and have enough "stuff". They just want to visit and stitch with friends! So we would like to offer a simpler kind of retreat. We will start on a Thursday afternoon at 2:00. There will be a catered dinner on Thursday (pizza, sandwiches, burgers,chicken, ribs, the dinners will vary). We will do introductions, and buck a bag fabric on Thursday evening, too. Friday we will do Cecilia's 50% off sale at the conference room. We will still have a charity donation with a $100.00 Cecilia's gift card as the prize - drawing will be on Saturday evening. We will say our good byes Saturday night when the conference room closes at 11p.m. The trading and snack tables will still be there, too. All attendees will get a 10% discount on all purchases at Cecilia's during the retreat. And you will receive a t shirt and tote bag to commemorate the retreat!!  The cost for the "Simply Stitchin Retreat" will be $50.00 per person!!! You will be responsible for your accommodations and meals except for the Welcome dinner on Thursday evening. Let us know if you are interested...........we may be able to schedule one for this Summer if we have enough interest!!

I've got to get going...............I promise to post more often!!! Come by the shop and visit with us for a while when you are in Branson. We look forward to meeting you!

Take care and enjoy your needlework!!
Margaret, Jessica, Amy, Pam, Cecilia, Joanna, Krista and Ann

This sounds like an interesting weekend, although I'd prefer it to happen after the kids are back in school and Branson isn't quite as crazy (because I'm old and don't like the traffic!).
