PWA Retreat Recap

let ter buck big PWA

It’s hard to believe that another retreat has come and gone.  This was our 8th event celebrating our 8th year in the bead biz.  Wow!

Twenty-two ladies converged on The Big House LodgeBig House  in

Cle Elum, WA where the accommodations were just perfect for our crafty gang.   Everyone loved the sleeping wing that was secluded and quiet.  Chowtime was fun!  We had a mess hall that could seat us all together separate from the rest of the house.  Having the meals catered was new for us and we definitely plan to do that again!   Jorge and Vicki Chow really did a nice job and we were all well fed.  Thank you!!Cinnamon Buns

Then there was the great room which we decked out for a weekend of shoebox projects and kept open 24 hours a day.  morning!  Crafting


What girls only event would be complete without a SHOPPING trip?  Even a tiny town like Cle Elum has it’s own rubberstamp and scrapbook store!  Ruby of Ruby’s spoiled usShopping all rotten with

yummy treats, a store discount, goodie bags AND a very generous gift basket donated to our event and awarded to Kris D.!  If you’re ever in Cle Elum, WA Ruby’s is a must stop store!

Entertainment seems to happen spontaneously with this group of gals and the echoes of laughter rang throughout the house all weekend long.Amanda

Great food, great fun and great projects made for an amazing and memorable weekend!  Thanks to all who came to spend the weekend with me!!







Hope to see ya’ll next time!
