Sewtopia! A Heavenly Retreat

First: a winner for this week's giveaway, a summer 2014 copy of Modern Patchwork, comment #18 was Barbara Woods! hooray! Thanks for reading my blog, all. There will be lots more giveaways now through the holidays, so visit often. Last weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to go the first ever Sewtopia sewing and quilting retreat in Salt Lake City. I cannot even imagine the effort it must take to organize an event like this, but it was absolutely perfect! I am lucky that my mom happens to live in SLC, so I flew out a day before Sewtopia started...
