On the last weekend of March 2020 some of my quilting friends and I had planned an annual quilting retreat to Bridal Creek B&B in Hamilton, NY. It’s a beautiful place to regroup and reconnect.
On past retreats our host Barbara has served us some wonderful meals and catered to us all throughout the weekend. In addition, as a quilter herself, she has joined us daily in the quilting studio as well as at meals.
Unfortunately, like the rest of our country this year, this is one of the many social activities that had to be canceled.
Quilters are a resourceful group however. Technology to the rescue.
We got together with a google hangout for almost two hours of video chat where we were able to
catch up, share our current projects and laugh, and laugh…… Laughing is definitely good for the soul. The only thing missing was the overwhelming amount of snacks that normally accompany our get-togethers.
In fact we enjoyed our video chat so much that we’re chatting weekly. You can’t keep a quilter down!
Looking forward to next year’s retreat.There is always time to quilt!
