Camp Quiltathon! Spring Retreat!

Double Trouble or Twice the Fun!
Your spring retreat chairpersons have been busy making plans … let's celebrate spring!  Camp Quiltathon is only days away!  This is a "Loose Ends" event!  Get out a project in progress or start a new one!

Camp Directors Valerie and Terri have been busy planning a fun filled weekend!  You'll have loads of time to work on your projects!  They have added bonus activities to help with the camp themed experience.

General Information

Online Registration
It is important that you register in advance!  For planning purposes we need to know who and how many to expect.  Space is limited and we want to make room for everyone.  Just click on the image labeled "Camp Quiltathon" and type in your information.  If you do not have a cell phone, just enter your home number.  Your email address allows us to send you last minute updates!  The $10 retreat fee will be paid when you arrive at camp!

Special Events
Several fun events and competitions have been planned for members to participate in!  Each day begins with a Sewing Warm-Up project!  There will be Sewing Olympic Events to help break up the day!  Also, fun-filled competitions that last the entire retreat!  All events come with prizes and notoriety!

Commemorative Quilt
Member Dixie asked if we would organize a quilt for Jerry made by Julie's friends.  If you would like to participate, please bring batik scrap fabrics in masculine colors.  The pattern requires 2.5 X 18 inch strips.  We will use our Accu-Quilter to cut the strips from donated fabric.

Potluck Dinner
Members always look forward to our retreat potlucks … we know how to feed ourselves very well! ;-)  In keeping with the camp theme, the guild will provide Pigs-In-A-Blanket (hotdogs baked in bread dough), Terri is making baked beans, Valerie is providing potato salad, and guild President Sara will be bringing S'mores bars!  Please fill in the menu with any dish you'd like to share!  

We all enjoy the snacks everyone brings to sustain us while we sew!  Bottled water, coffee and tea will be available.   Keeping with tradition … there will be Chee-toes! Hee-hee!
