Brentwood on the Beach cross stitching retreat!

Hello everyone, Just thought I would share a few of the photos from our past retreats! Brentwood on the Beach is situated on the beautiful shore of Lake Huron between Grand Bend and Bayfield in Canada. Our group of Stitching Sisters have been going to this beautiful place for 6 years now. We all love our time there so very much. Here is a hint of how much we love it.......we all actually start counting how many sleeps until we all tear off in our cars to get there.......and yes we tend to arrive early and tend to overstay and leave late! It is a totally do your own thing week end. There are no classes, but there is always quite a few of us that are ready to help whenever we can. We have an on going joke that some do not stitch the right way. But what I mean by that is an x can go on to the fabric many different ways. As long as they are all the same way you are good! There is a salt water pool, the lake is great but usually too cold to swim except for one sister you would go in and paddle around like it was July! She was a brave soul! Unfortunately we lost Trish last year, but I know in my heart she will be with us this year when her Stitching Sisters return to what some of us call Heaven on the Huron! I thought that I would let any cross stitchers know that due to some ladies not being able to return this year as it stands right now we have 4 spots open. If anyone is interested please send an e-mail to me at and I will be happy to send you all the details. I will tell you that it is two to a room and each bedroom has their own bathroom. The date for our week-end is May 27 - 29 Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. Some us tack on 1 day before and 1 day after. We would love to meet new stitchers, we are a fun group and we LOVE CROSS STITCHING! ~Happiest when stitching~
