    This was such a wonderful weekend, and everything I had hoped for! Lia’s team spoiled us with delicious local food and treats, the instruction by Lia and Meagan was great, and meeting a whole bunch of new friends in person who love what I love was THE BEST!! I felt well-taken care of, and enjoyed it all. I would do it again!
