First Farm Inn
Painters, Quilters, Scrapbookers or Red Hat Ladies Retreats
Pack up that carrying case and come spend the weekend creating with your friends. Four to six (we can stretch to include seven) ladies can take over the house, lay out projects out on the floors of the family room, living room and dining room table or use card tables and get down to work! Chat, listen to music, snack and just have a great time escaping from the home front. Three delightful quilt shops are within an hour’s drive. Several big art and craft stores are within a half-hour.
Take time out for massages and hot tub time if you’d like or just use the group’s energy and momentum to complete that project you haven’t had time to finish with all the pressures of home! A bargain at $108 per person for four to six includes two nights and two big gourmet breakfasts.
