This year’s retreat was in Wolfville at Victoria’s Historic Inn. We all arrived late on Tuesday and after gathering in the Inn’s drawing room for refreshments and conversation, we made our way to the Troy Restaurant for a wonderful meal.
The next morning, we got down to business and began work on our selected project. The majority had decided on a pulled thread design, which was a pattern developed and published by the Louise Breton, sister of our guild member, Marie-France. Called Mozaique Vegetale, it is a circular pattern highlighting several whitework stitches. It was fun and challenging, and we can’t wait to see everyone’s finished pieces. Another night out for supper to wrap things up, we headed home the next morning.
It was a fine getaway and the people at Victoria’s Inn treated us royally. We were very pleased. Can’t wait ‘till next year!
