Where did 2015 go -- Welcome 2016.

2015 was a very busy year for Russellee BnB both from the BnB side and the Craft Retreat side.  We had the largest number of people staying at the BnB during the year than we ever had in any of the past 13 years we have been operating.  We also had 10 groups of crafters, (card makers, quilters and scrap bookers) as well as our Quilting Cruise in February and Bali Quilting Retreat in July/August.


2016 is shaping up to be another busy year.  To-date we have 10 groups booked in with many as repeat bookings and new ones as well.  Unfortunately our 2016 Quilting Cruise was cancelled due to the Australian $ exchange rate with US $.  However, Russellee is having a five day ‘Quilting Cruise without the Boat’ in place of the cruise in February. The teachers and classes are the same as offered on the Cruise.  This retreat has filled very quickly; however, a couple of vacancies in some of the classes exist, with accommodation available in Tumut. Class information can be seen below.

Our Bali Quilting Retreat in September is almost full with only two spots available.  This two week retreat allows for the making of a personal batik fabric, time for sewing, the opportunity to see the culture of Bail and not to mention the fabrics.  Contact me if you are interested in sharing in this wonderful Quilting Retreat.

The BnB is also filling up with Easter fully booked.

Tony and I would like to thank all of those who supported us during 2015 with both the BnB and the Craft Retreats.  We look forward to catching up again in 2016.
