See the fun we had at our 2014 Summer Retreat

60 basket lovers had a wonderful day in Suffield CT on July 27, 2014 at the NBG Summer Retreat.    We started the day with our pot luck breakfast, coffee and conversation.  Then we split into five groups for our basket classes.  Then it started raining really hard - it was a good thing that we all fit in the pavillion and on the porch.  Our pot luck lunch offerings were quite varied and everything tasted very good.  Following lunch we had a short business meeting full of important information.  The auction topped of the day in style.  Our auctioneers wore feather boas and crowns, and our bidding paddles were hand made (and quite creative).  There was quite spirited bidding on some of the items, and less spirited bidding on others.  Many of the auction items were stunning.  We left at the end of the day with our new basket, and our auction spoils, happy to have spent the day with such wonderful basket friends.
