~ Prim Stitchers Society Retreat 2016 ~

Back Home ~
… safe & sound from a fabulous trip down to Georgia!!

This is picture-heavy but it was So beautiful there,
~ and Joan & I had SO much fun that I couldn't help my self!

Here is where we stayed ~
the Marietta Hilton

these photos show the huge veranda out back overlooking a breathtaking golf course…..











oh look! a loverly Southern Belle on the veranda!
{hello Mizz Joan!}}



these photos {below} 
show the drive up to the hotel and the entrance ~









although there were reports of severe weather, we never experienced it…
it was beautiful, clear & sunny…
windy too!






inside the grand ballroom,
we {the PSS Vendors} set up for the Merchant Mall…
and what a beautiful room!

here are random snaps of the booths full of goodies:















there is our Prim Mistress! 





































here is our corner booth...








and here are a few shots of my plunder from the trip!…
fabrics, linen, scissors, needles, trims, fobs & a wonky frog!















Our Heartfelt Thanks to Terri & Ridgely for hosting another stellar retreat ~
and for allowing Notforgotten Farm to be a part once again...
you are both the most hardworking & sweetest ladies I have ever met!

Thank you to all of the wonderful folks who stopped by my booth ~
we truly appreciate your kind words & support of what we do!
you are the reason we continue to create :)

to my fellow vendors at this years' Merchant Mall ~
your booths were beautiful as well as all of your offerings…
blessed to know each one of you!

and bottomless thanks to Mizz Joan Spalding ~
my left & right hand, part-time brain & human-calculator.
{ i love you cranky martini-girl! }


Now I am switching gears to get ready for the
Virginia Rug Fest
on April 9th!


~ Blessings from the Farm ~

Wow! What a marvelous time you all had…beautiful accommodations, pristine weather, and goodies galore! I'm most curious about that Witches' Brew hand dyed linen, though! Wonder what it was dyed with... Welcome back, Lori…we missed you. Thanks for sharing your adventure!
