We went to Nellie's Cottage Retreat. It was beautiful, affordable, quiet, quaint, and decorated just like a little Nellie's cottage should be decorated. I would highly recommend it.
design boards following Lori Holt's tutorial from her blog "Bee in my Bonnet".
We made 2 sizes. They work really great if you're making those "Farm Girl Vintage" blocks.
The second group project were these stiletto's. You can use them like you would your seam ripper or small scissors to aid in pushing fabric through the feed dogs. The stiletto pins were purchased at a local craft store and beads from a bead shop. We stuck a little super glue in there to keep the beads in place.
