Quilt Retreat and Friendship
Filed under: General, Creativity, Inspiration, Family and Friends, Quilting, Creative Every Day

Today I realized how much the Heart of the Valley quilt retreats and friendships mean to me. There is a buzz of creativity in the YMCA Camp Hazen Lodge as we all come together for three days of quilting, sewing, eating, and talking. This is a place for friends old and new to share family style meals and special times together. There is a view of Cedar Lake out the wrap around windows in the lodge which brings a peaceful feeling to all. The surroundings are beautiful and there is time for a walk with friends to explore the woods or to sit by the huge stone fireplace and share stories. I have been going to the HOV retreats for many years and it is always a time for renewal and inspiration. Friends are so important and spending a weekend with friends in creative pursuits is life affirming and empowering.
