The "Real Housewives" of the Southern Comforters Quilt Guild commenced this afternoon at the West River, Maryland Retreat Center for a weekend of fun and sewing....50's style. Our fearless leaders (retreat planners), Janet McCabe and Karen Todd amused the crowds with our welcome packets of cats-eyes reader glasses; lipstick (deep reds and pinks), cigarettes (the candy kind), pearls, and last but not least, a spool of thread! Listening to the 100 top hits from the 50's and 60's on top of 25 sewing machines running full speed ahead makes for an interesting combination of head boppin' and sing-a longs even if we are bit off-key to the "spinning tunes" (streaming through iTunes).
Thankfully, the food "served" at tonight's dinner (potluck) was contemporary fare, though some "longed" for jello molds, meatloaf, TV dinners and tuna noodle casserole!
BSoleille! The bright side of singing, dancing and sewing to the "oldies" - retro style...
