Okay, y'all, here is the official announcement.
Our COF 2013 hostess will be our very own Gonesewin'. She will add details later on about our trip to Pennsylvania.
I really do not want to hijack all of the COF 2012 information, so please keep the chatter to a minimum until after we are in Branson.
Just to let you know how this works now.
The committee that "vets" upcoming hostesses is made up of previous hostesses. Here they are:
2007, Eagan, Minnesota: NeicyMN
2008, Houston, Texas: Needlecrazy
2009, Manchester, New Hampshire: Nickilee
2010, Portland, Oregon: Pegsami
2011, Charlotte, NC: Quiltaholic
2012, Branson, MO: SavedSinnr
If you want to be a future hostess, we ask that you have attended at least one previous retreat. You need really great organizational skills, and the ability to recruit a great group to help you with all of the details. I know that I speak for all of the previous hostesses when I say that we could not have pulled off the amazing fun times we've had without all of the people who stepped in to help with all sorts of tasks.
So, if you think you want to do this at some point, please PM any of us on the committee. Past hostesses are up for comments. Lindsey has her hands full with Branson COF right now, so please let her do her awesome work and let the others handle any questions.
I can truly say that there is not a nicer group of people around than the quilters on this board. I am so very honored to be a part of this forum.This message has been edited. Last edited by: needlecrazy,

Sounds like this will be a great retreat, too. Something to think about. I know that I appreciate all the work that goes into a retreat to make it a fun filled event. Thanks to all for doing this. Pat
Great job, Carol, of explaining the situation!! I was up early and was the first one to read the announcement and wanted to be the first one to reply----I was up, but evidently my 'puter wasn't and I couldn't post !! LOL
Variety & Contrast means BUY EVERYTHING
... ... ... ...
I just want to add my 2-busy cents in
LORI ... You will make an AWESOME hostess, and I KNOW you are planning a GREAT retreat up in the northern neck of the woods
I would like to just add some GREAT BIT AMENs TO THAT!!! The Branson retreat hasn't even happened yet, but I can tell you ... I could NOT have done this without these great gals on the committee, and the ones who stepped up behind the scenes ... and the ones who stepped up that I'm not even going to meet up with
CONGRATS LORI on hostessing the 2013 COF RETREAT!
PLEASE HELP SUPPORT MY WALK ... on my RELAY FOR LIFE PAGE
Bring on the New Year ... it's MY YEAR for sewing!
Yeah Lori, It is wonderful to know that we will keep this going. I too am proud to be associated with this wonderful group.
One small question........ no two small questions.....
WHEN and WHERE?
Is it September yet??????????
Well, I guess it's official now! Thanks Carol
I have a great team of ladies and we hope to have a fun time!
All I will say for now is that COF 2013 is scheduled for June 21- 23, 2013 and will be in Harrisburg, PA.
We'll talk more after BRANSON!
“May God give you...For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer.”
Oh way cool! Thanks Gonesewin. I will let dear nephew in Lebanon know that we will be stopping by to visit him either the day before or the day after. That is NEAT!
I love the fact that it is summertime. I can spend a week before and a week after sight seeing because I have never visited that part of the US before. I have just cut a hole in the top of my fruit jar lid to start catching all the extra pennies around.
This sounds nice. I am sorry that I am going to miss Branson, as it gets closer I am getting sorrier... Maybe next year. Thanks Gonesewin.
I will be retired by then and am so excited. It will be my first COF retreat and am so looking forward to it. I twill be my third retreat provided I make ti to the fall retreat my guild is having. I attended my first one this spring and could go on one every month if it were affordable. I had a blast. What a way to get a lot of "work" done and have a blast while doing it.
Oh no!!!!! I was so looking forward to attending another COF on the East Coast but that happens to be the week I already have vacation plans made. I'm sure ya'll will have a great time!
Woo Hoo!! Looking forward to another summer COF. I haven't hosted something like this myself but have organized other functions in the past so I have at least a small idea of all the work that goes into it. You ladies rock!
Harrisburg, wow, only 2 hrs from me. I might actually be able to go for a day!
"There are three kinds of people in the world. Those who can count, and those who can't."
I've only been to PA once for a quilt show, in winter, I'll probably be retired by then also, perhaps I can make this a retirement present!!
That's my part of the world. I'll keep watching for further info.
