Delaware Quilts

Sadly, the coronavirus caused the cancellation of our 2020 retreats. And due to the uncertainty of what spring may bring, I have decided to cancel the scheduled 2021 Spring Retreat also. I don't want to risk any of my ladies getting sick.

After much personal soul searching and prayer I have decided that it is time to call it quits. When this all started I had two young boys, the oldest just starting high school, and the retreat was a fun thing for Mom to do. Over the years the boys and the retreats grew and kept me busy. Now I have three darling grandchildren who I'd love to stay home and watch grow, as soon as covid 19 will allow us to be together again.

I looked forward to each retreat, meeting new people, learning new skills and all the fun. We went from one retreat a year to two in just five years, then three a year later. There were 5 in 2005, 2006, and in 2012 when four of them were back to back (whew!) In 2019 we had two back to back marvelous retreats in the spring, little did we know they would be our final ones.

Sixty-five retreats attended by 299 different ladies from four different countries and I do not know how many different US states (at least 31). It was a life changing experience for me, and I am thankful that I did it. I made some friends that I hope will stay with me the rest of my life.

the lovely Amish/Mennonite stores which has been bought out by the Englishers. I wish I could hop in the
car and go check it out, but for now I'll stay home and wait out this covidcrud. Once the crud is done and
I've had my shots, we will be checking things out up there.
