Fall 2020 Quilting/Crafting Retreat
We are happy to offer quilting/crafting retreats this fall.
Please know that they will not resemble the usual quilting/crafting retreats.
This will be more of a private retreat to get away, stay in your own private cabin half, and work on projects. It will not be as “social” of an occasion as the retreats usually are.
- Friday, Sept. 11 (5pm) – Sunday, Sept. 13 (3pm)
- Friday, Oct. 9 (5pm) - Sunday, Oct. 11 (3pm)
- Monday, Nov. 16 (5pm) – Wednesday, Nov. 18 (3pm)*
- FULL - Friday, Nov. 20 (5pm) – Sunday, Nov. 22 (3pm)* - FULL
*If you would like to come to both of the November retreats, you can leave your stuff at your cabin and your work station between the two retreats. Lodging and meals are not available between the two (for disinfecting and cleaning between groups) but you are welcome to leave your belongings in your cabin and meeting room for free between the two retreats.
