Welcome to the Kimmel Center

"Sewing in the Orchard" was held at the Kimmel Center in Nebraska City. Wonderful facility ... Welcome!
There was lots of room to spread out all our quilting supplies and Jo even had a "Jo's Quilt Shop" set up if we needed to do some retail therapy. And of course, we all wanted enjoyed the convenience of a retreat and quilt shopping all under one roof!
Jo Richards, Kathy Hall and Jeane Tucker busy appliquéing. The retreat was very personable... not having the humming of a sewing machine provided lots of time to visit with one another and still sew! Good times!
"Jo's Quilt Shop"... I did some "therapy" shopping here! Of course, my luggage was heavier on my return flight, even without the California wine and homemade cookies that I had brought from home!
All the food was DELICIOUS!  From breakfast through dinner each day, we enjoyed wonderful meals together! Yummy Taco Salad for lunch!
I loved it here and can't wait to return for Jo's next retreat.

My next posting will be "Show and Tell"! Fabulous quilts and more great times!
