'Mill House Accommodation & Retreat'
Friday 24th to Sunday 26th October 2014
I (Sharon aka Lilabelle Lane) have a group of girls interested in a weekend Retreat at the new "Mill House Retreat" in Ballan AND I have one spot left ...... are you are interested?
As you may know I am part of a great group of bloggers that get together 4 times a year for a fun filled stitching day at Millrose in Ballan. Over the last 12 months or so we have been watching the lovely Mill House Retreat house come to life right next door. Well now it's open and we want to do a retreat. We have picked a weekend and have started taking names. You don't have to have attended any of the bloggers meet to come to this one. It is a great excuse to leave the hubby and kids at home and come away for a great weekend. Imagine, like minded women in the one spot, chatting, laughing and a bit of sewing thrown in for fun. :) Here are some details for you.
Federation house purposefully restored for quilting retreats.
Light, airy, luxurious and simple.
Mixture of modern and period furniture.
Comfortable and clean with a peaceful feel.
Sleeps 14 people (twin share rooms) each with it's own en-suite.
Could you see yourself sitting here, laughing, socialising, eating and sewing your weekend away?
These photos below were taken before completion but give you more of an idea to
what awaits behind the Red Door.

Please note that if I get the numbers to go ahead the deposit will be required asap to book.
Please only commit to this weekend if you are certain you can come.
Although I am the person taking numbers I do not want to be the person left to fill spots at the end of the day because you cant come for some other reason. You are booking your spot and therefore will be held responsible for that spot and the costs associated. If for any reason you can not come it will still be up to you to pay and or fill your spot. Also, if you require your own room and not share, you will be needing to pay for two spots. Any other questions please email me :o)
Mark it on your calendar. Plan to pack your sewing machine.
Plan to finish a project or two or start something new :o)
The confirmed names I have so far are:-
Me :) Melody (x2) Shez Barb
Anne Sue Lyn
lets talk, hugs Sharon
P.S. Please email me if your interested.
