I hope you all have a fabulous time and that the weather is wonderful. You can't help but have a good time with all that uninterrupted sewing time. And I haven't even mentioned the food. I am taking a hiatus this year but will look forward to seeing pictures of the quilt show and of those people I've come to know so well. Travel safely everyone.

Does anyone know if there is wifi at the camp? perhaps I could pack the laptop for pic posting to the forum. It's a thought...

If their infrastructure is not damaged from storms, we have internet access. Cell service is not as reliable. I like to stay connected :~)

RE: To everyone going on retreat

Yes safe travels to everyone! I know you will have a good time.... I went looking through the archives to find pictures of past retreats. I felt like I was right there.... nobody ever looks the way you imagine them to, though!

I dream of going on a retreat sometimel but things like jobs and pets do create a hindrance!

Have a blast everyone, and please post lots of pics!

Enjoy, what more can anyone say. Will be looking forward to hearing all the details and seeing the pictures. Especially looking forward to meeting Kristine and Jean when they stop in Canandaigua following thier adventure at retreat.

RE: To everyone going on retreat

Thanks for all the well wishes, everyone! Hopefully, each and every one of you will get to experience a retreat of some sort, at some point in your quilting career. There's nothing like it!

There is wifi at camp, though last year it was sketchy because of recent storm damage. Prior years it was strong. There will already be at least a few laptops at camp which are usually available for others to check emails, etc. Beverly is our resident forum updater, with a few others helping out along the way.

Cell service works best down on the balcony of the dining hall. Some have had success in our sewing space, some not. It's a really good excuse to be out of touch, especially with responsibilities of home ;0

Fran, you will be missed! Hopefully you will be able to come next year! I just packed my carry-on bag with my sewing machine and lots of projects!!! No sewing tomorrow. It is so much fun - looking forward to seeing everyone!

I sure wish everyone on the board could make it. What fun that would be :-)

I won't miss the phone not working, but my family might! I'll bring my iPad which my dd will hate me for, but I know she will survive. I'll also bring a camera. It actually lives in my purse, but I'm sure I'll need to bring the charger for it.

I'm getting very excited!! Last minute prep tonight then packing tomorrow.

I wish everyone could be there too! People who don't belong to a community like this forum can't imagine how connected you can feel to people you've never met in person. I would like to be able to put a face to every name!

RE: To everyone going on retreat

Oh, I'd like to add my best wishes to everyone going to the retreat as well. Have a wonderful time. I'll be thinking about you this weekend.

Safe travels everyone.

This is my first year going YEAH!!! My sis from CA usually visits around the same time as the retreat.

I am so looking forward to meeting everyone! I joined in 2006 and enjoy our forum so much!

Maybe one day I will get to the GW Quilters retreat. I guess I will just have to be happy with going on my guild retreats....we have one coming up in Nov. and another in April.

If Kristene and Jean know when they will be in Niagara Falls it would be great to meet you!

RE: To everyone going on retreat

I hope everyone has a safe and fab time. I so wish I was going so I could meet all of you. Maybe next year! Can't wait to see all the pics.

I'm really looking forward to the pics too. Those of us in the "cheap seats" will at least feel a bit of the excitement. Have a wonderful time.

We will miss those who can't attend this year and hope you can make it another time. I will especially miss my traveling buddy, Carol. (Carol, watch for picutres!)

Tuppermom, Kristene and I expect to be in Niagara Falls on Mon., Oct. 29th.
