We’re heading out on Friday for our annual sewing retreat in the North Georgia mountains, and I gotta say: after the crazy of these past few weeks, I AM READY. We’re staying at the Glen-Ella Springs Inn, which is amazing and welcoming and historic and luxurious and fantastically perfect for this trip. How’s about some Jumbo Shrimp sautéed with peppers, shallots and andouille sausage in apple wood smoked tomato sauce over fried Parmesan grit cake? Or maybe you’d prefer Chicken Orchard – boneless chicken breast prepared with Cavados and Granny Smith apples served with tomato risotto? Or you’re in the mood for 6 oz. beef tenderloin with mushroom demi glaze? And that’s just the menu for the first night. And THAT’S just the FOOD!
We take over the conference center each year, and sew to our little hearts’ content, morning to night. We’ll have a lovely BBQ lunch in the Garden House on Saturday with a hand-sewing workshop, and we’ll stitch away on projects of our own choosing as much–or as little–as we’d like. I’ve got some fabulous plaid silk lined up to be the skirt for my Christmas party ensemble, and the yummy Lizzy House Castle Peeps sampler to work on in quieter moments.
Wanna join us? We’ve got just ONE SPOT LEFT, and I love someone spontaneous and bold who wants to jump in at the last moment. Click here to see the details and register to join us–first come, first served!
