December 2012

December is here already, which has us here at Delphine's asking the question that we all seem to

ask every December... Where did the year go? How did the time slip by so quickly? Perhaps in the weeks to come you'll be thinking about what you accomplished in 2012...quilts you finished, quilts you started...time spent with those you love. As you're making resolutions for the New Year, don't forget to leave time for a class, Block of the Month, a retreat, or other fun, creative project to put a little holiday in every day.

Winter Log House Retreats

January 25th, 26th, 27th February 1st, 2nd, 3rd February 8th, 9th, 10th

You have three opportunities this winter to get away with your friends and your projects! These retreats will again be held at the Log House in Michawye. If you've ever dreamt of a cozy log house on a winter day with nothing to do but sit and sew and laugh and eat food that you didn't have to prepare or clean up after, these are for you! The Log House can sleep 12 very easily, as well as provide ample room for your largest project! Each retreater will have her own sewing table and will share cutting and pressing stations. Sleeping accommodations are varied, and include twins, queens and kings. Your place will be assigned when you register for the retreat of your choice. All meals are included! Call the shop to reserve your place soon because each retreat is limited to 10 retreaters plus Delphine (your hostess) and Ann (your cook for the weekend). What's the cost? Just $150!! Yes. You read that correctly.


Delphine's will be closing early on Christmas Eve (at 3p.m.) And will be CLOSED on Christmas Day, December 31st, and January 1st.
