Shopping at PALs Retreat

Another fantastic wonderful thing about the PALs Retreat. Vendors setup. Of course we were forced.....um I mean allowed to shop at their wonderful booths. Here is what just happened to follow me home...
Foxwood Crossings. She has a store in Pigeon Forge, TN that is just beautiful. I love the sled patterns she has. I did a few of the large ones after last years retreat. This year I found a snowmen set called Snow Grateful and the sleds for them. Plus she had these beautiful cardinal sets. The little wing get stitched perforated paper with beads. We got a set for here at home and a set to give to friends. Can't wait to start the cardinals. They will be started tomorrow definitely if not tonight.
Praiseworthy Stitches. I got a cute little ornament and a fun By the Sea piece.
Erica Michaels. What an amazing booth to see in person. She has so many pieces done on 40ct. I've never tried one but two followed me home. I can't wait to try them. Also she had a piece exclusive for PALs that I bought. I'll have to show you a photo later of that one.

Down Sunshine Lane, Noteworthy Needle, and Silver Creek Samplers were also setup. Santa Claus (my mom) was there shopping. I know for a fact she visited these booths but you'll have to wait to see what I get since it's not Christmas yet. I did buy some gorgeous fabrics from Down Sunshine Lane. She also had trick or treat bags we could buy. It included threads or fobs and some other wonderful things. You also got a ticket for a giveaway later. Jeremiah picked me out a bag and guess what....I won the gift certificate. $50!! So now I get to spend it on her website. Can't wait to do some more shopping. I also got some things from the freebie table since I of course have no projects to work on haha. Amy is the host of the PALs Retreat and she is such a wonderful person. We had been friends online for several years. It was so neat to meet her in person. So thankful I found out about this wonderful retreat. Next year these is a gorgeous class being taught too.

So even though I'm really glad to be home.....is it time for next years retreat yet??? Maybe I should get started on this years goodies before I get more!

  1. None of the retreats I've done have had vendors, so this looks like a lot of fun. Great choices for your suitcase stowaways!

  10. I do like the way way your new stash "followed you home!" That definitely makes guilt-free stash. And I wonder what Santa Claus will be bringing you this year? It's all too exciting! Looking forward to seeing LOTS of new starts over the coming weeks! :)

  11. I agree with Rachel, stash with legs is a wonderful thought!
    You do have to support the vendors who make the effort to attend with their goodies.
