Applique Retreat 2010, Camp Wightman

Every year in mid-October we meet at Camp Wightman in Griswold/North Stonington, Connecticut, for a long weekend of applique. We totally immerse ourselves in handwork (applique, beading, embroidery, binding nearly-finished quilts). The lodging is very comfortable and the food is plentiful and delicious. This allows us to concentrate on stitching all weekend.

 
This year, the applique challenge was to make table mats for the dining tables. This winning table mat was made by Ruth Adams and was given to Karen and David Warfield, Camp Wightman directors.
