Quilting Retreat At Lake Pelham

Last weekend I was on a retreat with my quilting guild at Hotel Seeblick at lake Pelham. Gertrud one of our members organised this wonderful weekend retreat for us and it was a great success! All of us want to come again next year... We stayed from Friday afternoon until Sunday after lunch. It was fun and a lot of sewing and quilting. Nearly everyone had a massage or visited the Spa in the basement of the hotel. The food was delicious and more than enough, the rooms were nice and the whether was just wright for a quilting weekend - snow and cold. Here are a few pictures for you:
