“No friendship is an accident.” ~O.Henry, Heart of the West
Have you ever been to a women’s retreat? I hadn’t until I moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado some eight years ago. Two weeks after I arrived I decided to attend a retreat sponsored by the United Methodist Women. As a newcomer to the community I didn’t know a soul but it became the beginning of networking with all kinds of interesting women whom have inspired me in all different ways.
I am attending another retreat of sorts tonight with the Delectable Mountain Quilters Guild. The group gathers monthly to bind together their friendships through common interests – talking sewing, patterns and all things creative and artistic. Abstract quilts by presenter Jean Spring is on the docket for tonight.
I’m looking forward to it. I’ll let you know how it goes!
