Bear Cabin

Once a year, my quilting group goes to Show Low, AZ for a quilt retreat. Last week was the week! It is called Bear Cabin and it is so much fun. Carol is the best host and makes everyone feel welcome and cared for. We did alot of sewing, alot of laughing and alot of eating! My friend, Julie and I drove together because we both had to work half day and weren't able to leave as early as everyone else. It takes about 3.5 hours to get there. After saying hello to everyone, we set up our machines and started sewing. Here are a few pictures of the activities around the room.
It's a wonderful place for sewing. The light is wonderful and the atmosphere is friendly and warm. The weather was beautiful.. just a little chilly but sunny and perfect.

Maggie, the Bear Cabin Mascot

We took Maggie for a couple of walks out in the forest to stretch after sitting for too long and Carol fed us 3 wonderful meals a day (Carol is a great cook!). Who could ask for more?!?
This is the group. We were there from Thursday afternoon to Sunday noon. It went by so fast, I can't wait till next year!
