Updated 4/13/2024

This is the Retreat Itinerary for 2024.  Updated as changes occur. 

Menu Posted April 13th

What will we do all week, and where will we be?

Find where you're sleeping, where you're sewing, and where you're socializing!

Sunday

This is our 'Travel and Get There' Day.   Get into camp between 3pm and 5pm.  Stop at the Office building (first building on the right as soon as you cross the bridge).  There you will get your name tag and your Show and Tell time and your free goodies!  If appropriate, sign in and get your room keys, building and room assignments, and unpack.  Even set up your sewing things on your table and start sewing!  Settle in and say hi to all your buddies from the past or make new friends with the neighbors for the week!  What do you pack?  Comfortable clothes and shoes - layers for the weather forecast and meant for a bit of walking so you can get some refreshing country air!  Sewing supplies for your to-do list.  Anything you may want to be comfortable for the week.  Snacks, including alcoholic beverages, are permitted on the grounds, but cooking is NOT permitted. 

Returning this year is the Quilters' Garage Sale.  Tables will be provided in the new Assembly Hall, for free and discount priced items, so we hope you remembered to include those items when you packed for camp!  Envelopes will be available for payments to sellers.  To sell, simply put your name on the envelope and the price, and place with the item.  When purchased, buyer can turn in the envelope to the seller, Linda or Mary and we will hand them out at assemblies in the evening.

Dinner at the Dining Hall at 5pm

Informal Gathering in the Assembly Hall after dinner.

Join us for an evening get-together.  A little Show and Tell (limit your Show and Tell to three things, please!), and a lot of seeing who made the trip.  

 

Raffle Quilts are encouraged to be shown and hung on Sunday for ticket sales.   

The Chapel will be open each day during lunch hours for quiet prayer and reflection.

Free time is the way we roll at retreat!  You are on your own schedule, coming and going - and sewing -as you please!

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday

Breakfast in the Dining Hall  7:30-8:15am

 

Breakout sessions at 11:00am.  These are free short demos from our teachers intended to give you a break and some spark to your creative juices!  No need to join us if you have other plans, but look at the offerings-

     Monday - Laura Nolletti will present a short talk on the Blooming Nine-Patch quilt pattern.

     Tuesday - Jeri Fickes will present binding basics and more in her 'Finishing School'.

     Wednesday - Mary Ann Webb will present paper-piecing basics.

     Thursday - Lynn Sykes will have a presentation on Rope Bowls.

Lunch is Noon-1:00pm

Dinner at the Dining Hall 5:00-6:00pm

Assembly at the Assembly Hall at 7pm

There will be a bit of Show and Tell, and maybe a few announcements but lots of time to visit!  Special Topics are available for these nights if there is interest:

     Monday - Let's talk about our Quilt Guilds, sharing what we do, and what we don't, like about the organizations that fuel our passions and fellowship.  Meeting with others can give us lots of ideas to take back home.  Linda will have a list to lead with and act as moderator, but this will be a night to share for all.  Network with us!

     Tuesday - Linda will have a Double Wedding Ring trunk show and demo, with die cut kits available at a low cost to make a three ring table topper.

     Wednesday - Cathy Parker will have a demo on making an easy lumbar pillow

     Thursday - Tonight we have Show and Tell of all the things we worked on and accomplished this week!  Join us!

Friday

Breakfast in the Dining Hall starts at 7:30am  

 

Following the good-bye's, we pack up and head for home.  Check-out is officially 11am.   Don't forget to drop the keys off on your way out!  

 

Thank you for attending and supporting our yearly gathering and learning!  Please be safe until we see you next year!
