 I thought those of you who haven't had the good
fortune to visit Pocket Full of Stitches would like a
small peak.  This is what you see when you enter the front door.  The wall to the left is lined with
threads all the way back.

 Finished pieces are displayed all the way around the room.  Stockings hang from the ceiling.  Small baskets on the shelves contain small canvases by subject & designer.  Racks of canvases on the floor are separated by designer.

Looking to the left as you enter the store.  In back of this room is a very large room for
     office & shipping

This is the classroom..  It held the 22 of us comfortably.  Alice Peterson & Dream House Ventures trunk shows were displayed on the walls.
The wreaths display the various PFOS Christmas Clubs.  There is another small room between the classroom & the main store.  It contained sale items, tote bags, etc.

We are having a great time at the PFOS Retreat. We are too tired to stitch any longer; four of us are sitting here with our I-Pads. Anna, who posts the PFOS Blog, was called out of town on a family emergency which is why the PFOS Blog has been quiet. The ladies of PFOS (the Pockettes) have prepared all the food for the welcoming party, 2 lunches, brunch tomorrow, and snacks. We are stuffed!

I have pulled all the threads that I needed for background of the Bighorn Sheep & my tic tac toe board. There were so many choices! I have started selecting stitches and threads for the squares on the Tic Tac Toe board.

This is my third year at the PFOS Retreat. Seeing repeat attendees & the staff adds to the enjoyment of the weekend. I will post pictures when I return home. Three of us even share the same flight home as far as Las Vegas.

I have been sorting thru supplies as I leave the middle of the week for the retreat at Pocket Full Of Stitches in Lubbock, Texas.  I am flying Southwest so I can take 2 suitcases for free if needed.  Can probably get there on one but coming home may be another matter.  The focus of this year's retreat is to work on pieces that we already own with the Pocketts providing their input.  I finally decided upon two canvases.  Both need threads.  PFOS offers so many options!  There is no LNS in my area.  I will have my I-Pad but there is no way to transfer a photo from the I-Pad to an e-mail or the blog.  Read about our adventures on the Pocket Full of Stitches Blog.
