Thanks to our prize sponsors!

Phew!  What a weekend!  I think everyone can agree we had an amazing time.  I'll try to write a wrap-up post soon with some pictures of the retreat, but for now I wanted to take a moment to thank some of our amazing sponsors who helped make it an event to remember.

We had tons of great giveaways to share, and it all started with an awesome swag bag for everyone!
It included goodies from:

Perhaps most coveted giveaway was this awesome Denyse Schmidt Modern Solids fat quarter pack.  Yum!

Our cocktail mixer on friday night was sponsored by some great shops including: Fat Quarter Shop, Pink Chalk Fabric, The Intrepid Thread, Fabricworm, 1 Choice for Quilting, Pennington Quiltworks and Drygoods Design.  Some lucky attendees got to do some online shopping with the gift certificates they won.
