Photos from the Gatherings Open House…


Well I promised I would show all of you “The Gathering” as far as it was on the Open House.  We are still going through the internet orders and will pick a winner soon….for the free weekend Jan-March.  It is snowing here today…I think our first or at least the prettiest snowfall we have had yet…I think some of you CA and Southern Girls should come to The Gathering and visit the snow this winter…wouldn’t that be cool…you could just look at it through the window and sew away….then go back to your warm home weather after the weekend…here are the pics..everything looks a litle brighter than it is because of all those daylight lights…I missed a few shots but here is what I have for now…I will fill in the voids later…you will be sick of me talking about it in the next couple of weeks…we are working on the headboards for the upper rooms…the bathrooms on the lower level and then just a little more tweeking and hunting for bedside tables and such….curtains and you know…stuff!….LB

    Looks just wonderful! I love the farmhouse table – did you make it? Or can you tell me where you got it? I’m hoping to make one soon – we need a table big enough for 8 to sit at – right now six is a tight squeeze – and I thought this style would be so perfect! Lemme know please!

    Oh, Lisa, you out did yourself. Give compliments to all those involved. It looks great and so very inviting! Can’t wait ’til June when we are booked. It would be fun to come in the winter but then you never know about those plane delays because of weather. And I would hate to be sitting in an airport anywhere when I could be sewing at The Gathering!

    Again, terrific job. Will look forward to see the final tweakings!

    That is an absolutely GORGEOUS retreat house. I’d love to just move in! And the quilt on the wall with the carpenter’s star and snowman in the lower corner–do you have that pattern?!! I NEED it! Thanks for the tour.

    Looks amazing Lisa – you’ve done a wonderful job making it look warm, cozy and inviting. I sure hope to make it up there sometime with the peeps and woolies, what a great time we would have.

    The Gathering is beautiful! Can you tell us more about the quilt in the large front room? It is black background with red, green and cream appliques with the sawtooth type border…

    I sure wish we lived closer…I know a group that would be there ALOT! Best of luck with your new endeavor….and to think this all started with dying wool in your backyard!

    Thanks for sharing. It is beautiful. Love all the quilts, especially the snowman one. I can’t wait to come visit in November. Would love to come up this winter from Georgia if my name gets drawn.

    I am with Kathi, I would love to know if you have the pattern for the applique and sawtooth quilt.
    I am so impressed with all your work. Everyone is so lucky to have such an outstanding place to go to. Bravo.

    Your retreat rooms look darling. I am so envious of the ladies who commented that they would be attending a retreat in the near future. The rooms are cozy, quilts are beautiful, all accommodations are just perfect. Thanks for sharing!

    Love the pictures of The Gathering. Stopped for the open house at the shop on Saturday and purchased your nine patch book(along with other things) and can’t wait to get started on those. They look addicting. Had my husband with me (out in the car) and he didn’t feel good so I couldn’t stop at the Gathering. Hope to come to retreat there soon.
