QCE Quilt Retreat
March 3-March 5, 2017
Gilmary Retreat Center, Coraopolis, PA
Have you ever been to a quilt retreat? If not, let me tell you what you can expect. First off, pack your PJ's and get ready to have fun! It's an opportunity to quilt uninterrupted for a whole weekend. You can do as much or as little as you choose. We provide the meals, so you don’t even have to cook! In addition to unlimited sewing, we have scheduled a bunch of fun activities. We have a quilt block demonstration from Rebecca Stahl, who will share with us a new block and color variations of the block to make a quilt in several sizes. Sometimes we are so busy hunched over our machines that our muscles tense up, so we have masseuses coming to give massages! We have The Creative Stitches Café coming to set up store at the retreat so that you won't even have to leave the building to do some quilt shopping! For those of you who love a challenge, this year's challenge will be "Pajamas" of course! Do you like a mystery? We will have a quilt challenge this year and Gladys Knox promises that the real mystery will be what fabrics we each chose to use. This year we are giving out the mystery quilt directions ahead of time so that you can make the best fabric choices! Of course, we will be decorating our work spaces and dressing up on Saturday night because, we are having a PAJAMA PARTY, and that means PRIZES! We will be having our popular Secret Sisters, a fun event where you make new friends and get fun gifts. Again, you can do as much or as little of these activities as you choose! This is your retreat. The retreat will be $145. Massages are extra, so see your choices on the registration form.
You can join the fun by downloading the registration forms from the QCE web site or the QCE Newsletter. We will begin taking the registration forms at the September meeting.
Registration will not be taken without payment ($35 deposit) and a completed Registration Form and Hold Harmless Form. Attendees are encouraged to print these forms out in advance, as a limited number of copies will be available at the meeting.
