So how do you win all this booty?

1. Leave a comment on this post. I'd like to know, if you could have the Stitch Gathering event moved to anywhere in the world where would that be? So tell me your dream quilt retreat location! If you can't think of anything just say hello :) Make sure you leave your email address if you are a 'no-reply' commenter.

  14. Romantic poet Lord Byron famously put it thus: “At the moment of the creation of our planet, the most beautiful merging of land and sea occurred at the Montenegrin seaside... When the pearls of nature were sworn, an abundance of them were strewn all over this area.” Suzi Ross suzana@ blueyonder.co.uk

  88. I think a retreat on a tropical beach would be lovely! I'm picturing a thatched hut on stilts, where we could feel like we are outside but protected from the sun ... I'm not really a beach person because I get bored, but if I was stitching all day, I would love the beach!
