I had such a fabulous time this past weekend with this lovely group of ladies! we look like a rainbow in this picture, don't we? We were near scenic Cambridge, Wisconsin, right on the CamRock State Park trail system, at a gorgeous new retreat house called Craftin' By the Creek. I can honestly say this is the best retreat house I have been to, and I give it my highest reccomendation. Steve and Carrie are new owners (we were only the third group to stay there) but they have taken great pains to ensure our utter comfort and crafting convenience.They even had a fire laid for us outside on the patio, and when we asked if there were marshmallow sticks, they went out and bought some and delivered them to us!
Steve is a talented cabinet-maker and all of the gorgeous wood in the house is his own work. The house is just like a piece of art! And the craft area is separated from the bedroom area, so you can nap in peace and people can stay up as late as they want without bothering anyone. The kitchen was so beautiful, it was just a joy to work in and even made clean up enjoyable. And the landscping in the gardens, deck and patio areas were just lovely--can't imagine them in a non-drought year!
I came home from the retreat and booked two for 2013 the very next day, I was so pleased! Save the date for March 21st-24th, 2013, and details will be released in late fall. Hope you can come and spend a power-weekend with us! The other weekend will be September 26th-29th.
