Grand Prize Winner

Jennifer was our grand prize people's choice winner at our rug show at the retreat--she entered her cat rug at the 11th hour, just when she finished binding it!  It's a good thing, since everyone loved it. :)  She made it at the request of her mother in law, who has Alzheimer's, and since time was an issue, she completed it in less than 2 months--from design to whipping!  Congratulations!

URFG Spring Retreat

Our first official guild retreat was held this past weekend at Daniel's Summit Lodge.  Everyone had a wonderful time, and even the Easter Bunny came!  The stools looked beautiful when they were finished being painted, so beautiful in fact, some opted not to cover the tops with a hooked mat as planned. (And I agreed!)

When all was said and done, we had 18 attendees (including 4 mother/daughter pairs!), with 3 vendors of wonderful wool:  Pioneer Primitives, Wooly 4 Ewe, and Nancy's wool.  I hope we can double our attendance for next year--everyone is welcome--the cost was only $30 for guild members, plus room and food. Quite a deal, if you ask me!
