Retreat anyone?

Crazy & Embellished Quilting Retreat
June 22-26, 2011
Drury Inn, O'Fallon, IL (approx. 15 miles from downtown St. Louis, MO)
This is a sit-and-create retreat with no classes, but a lot of very talented souls all meeting in one ballroom for four days! You're welcome to vend from your room.
No charge for attending, however, we will need to split a fee for the ballroom use, which will be determined by number of attendees.
Shopping opportunities, most within a few miles:
Chain Stores:
Hancock's, JoAnn's Superstore, Hobby Lobby, Michael's, Archiver's Scrapbooking
Independent Stores:
Beads - www.the-bead-place.webs.com, www.larrysbeads.com (Larry makes amazing lampwork beads, very reasonably priced!)
Scrapbooking - www.scrapbookfactory.net.
I will get 10% discount cards for everyone from The Bead Place and Jackman's Fabrics.
Antiques & Farmers Market:
St. Clair Antique Mall - in Fairview Heights
Cherokee Antique District - South St. Louis City
