Have you ever experienced a weekend so full of fun it’s hard to know where to begin sharing? I spent Friday through Sunday teaching the first ever tuffet workshop at the fabulous Ponderosa Quilt Retreat located in picturesque Waynesville, NC. If you are looking for a small quilt retreat venue, you really need to check out their website: www.summitquiltretreat.com. Eight tuffetteers, that’s tuffet-teer, were in attendance arriving Friday afternoon from Orlando, FL; Chicago, IL; Camden, SC; Charlotte, NC and Waynesville. What a great group of ladies, they sewed, laughed, sewed, ate, sewed, slept, sewed shopped; and sew on. Happily by noon on Sunday eight beautiful tuffets were ready to travel home with the brand new tuffetteers.
Packing for a tuffet class requires a list to make sure no essential part is left behind.
Next it all has to fit in the trunk…
and inside the car with room for a driver.
