Another Giveaway for the Getaway...

One of our grand prize winners of a room upgrade has elected to turn down the prize. So, that means that we're going to have a second drawing for a free upgraded room. We only have one room up for grabs.

So, if you have registered already, you're in the draw. If you haven't registered yet, you have until April 12th to sign up. We'll draw a new winner then. Hurry!

We're just full of contests, aren't we? Don't forget to enter the 'Guess who's coming to dinner?' contest too (scroll down to the Mar. 22 post to find it)!

It Almost Feels Like Christmas.....

Barbara and I spent some time on Thursday at Gitta's sorting through the boxes and boxes of things that will be given away at the retreat. At last count we had 6 boxes (and they're not little) of wonderful things for all stitchers. The generosity of our sponsors has been overwhelming. The attendees should feel spoiled.

Here's a partial list of some of the folks who have donated things:
  • Lizzie*Kate
  • Ice Watch
  • Sue Hillis
  • Kreinik
  • Jeannette Douglas
  • Picture This Plus
  • Just Another Button Company
  • Brenda Franklin
  • Coats and Clark
  • Camus International
  • Doodling Around
  • Colonial Needles
  • Gloriana
  • Caron Collection
  • The Victoria Sampler
  • Xs and Ohs
I'm sure there's more, but I can't remember them all! What's stopping you from registering?

Guess who's coming to dinner.... (and to stitch!)

Kathrin has invited a celebrated designer to stitch with us in the Stitcher's Lounge on Saturday and stay for the Banquet on Saturday evening too!

Can you guess who it is? Comment on this post and you'll be entered to win a prize!

Here are some clues to help you figure it out:

  • Enjoys cross-stitch, but has dabbled in many different techniques
  • Started designing more than 20 years ago
  • Has taught at the CreativFestival
  • Resides in Canada

Good luck!

And speaking of prizes, Kathrin has really been outdoing herself finding us great, great gifts from a whole host of designers and manufacturers. Last time I looked in the boxes (yes, there's more than one), I spied things from JBW, Jeanette Douglas, Zweigart, Thea Dueck (The Victoria Sampler) and many more..... Have you signed up yet?
