Stacy Nash Boot Camp

Hello Friends!
OH MY GOSH!!!!! The Stacy Nash Camp at The Country Sampler in Spring Green, WI was simply divine!! If you are planning to attend any retreats in 2015, this one needs to go to the top of your list!! Stacy's design for the Boot Camp was wonderful, hanging out with her was a real pleasure, she is so nice to be around. Jeanne, owner of The Country Sampler and her staff are amazing hosts. They think of everything, and treat you like royalty. The food they served was so delicious. Jeanne is just awesome, she is very special, and makes you feel special as well. The Country Sampler Shop is a dream, everything is beautifully displayed, and kitted and is a dream to shop there, I can't wait to go again!! I hope you enjoy the pictures, I have more on my phone, but not sure how to download those yet~~

Linda from Samplers Remembered made this small purse, it is handmade by using those paper hexs, just loved all the finishing and goodies she attached. I really loved everything about it!!!

Here is the store front of The Country Sampler!

 There was a Farmers Market on Friday, such a quaint town.

This is our kit from Stacy Nash, the velvet for the book is such a pretty color and is stunning with the gunmetal linen design on top!

 These antique samplers belong to the designers of Samplers Remembered. 

 This is the reproduction of one of the above antiques, it is in the book "Sonora Borders" 

 Fran brought this hardanger runner she has been working on, so pretty!

 This is Jean, such a sweet gal, she makes the most amazing stitch carriers from old luggage, no idea why I didn't get a picture of hers.....  it was amazing!!! 
 Here is Nancy and I, she is a dear one, always looking so good, with her beautiful necklaces. She also loves wool work and MB patterns~~we connected immediately!. 

Here is a picture of Patti from Winding Vine Wanderings Blog, a very talented needlewoman and sweet gal who sat at our table. It was so nice to meet her as I have purchased things she has made and sold from her blog. Hoping we sit at the same table together next year!!!
