Never been to a cross stitch retreat? Never even know such a thing existed?? Well, that was me up until about 4 years ago!
I want to start this off by saying, if you have ever attended one of my retreats, please leave a comment below with a few words summing up your thoughts and experience so that others can hear how much fun they are :). Thanks!
Now for those of you that don’t know me or have never been to one of my retreats, I started hosting retreats for my Facebook cross stitch group called Cross Stitch Club back in 2015. I came home one day and said to my husband “you might think I’m crazy, but I have been thinking about trying to organize a cross stitch retreat”..and he looked at me and said, “yup, you are crazy”. LOL But the idea got stuck in my head and I started talking about it in my group and everyone was like “YES, please do it!”. So it began.
2015 Cross Stitch Club retreat
The first retreat was a year and a half in the planning and the anticipation was serious agony for everyone! But that time was well worth it as about 175 cross stitchers came together from all over (included one from the UK and about 4 from Canada) for a weekend of stitching and fun! Many friendships were forged. We had the honor of having Ursula Michael and Joan Elliott joining us and mingling with their “fans”.
