Retreats offer a great place to exchange ideas, finish UFOs and/or start some new projects! We always have a lot of fun – we can quilt all day (and all night too if we want to) and never worry about cooking a single meal.
Our retreat is over for another year and was very successful. Everyone seemed to have a good time and we were very happy to be together, sew, be creative and exchange ideas. We had 16 people attend this year and the Charis Camp Chalet was a good size for that number, rooms were comfortable and the lighting was very good. Carola brought her pop up shop on Tuesday and we had a shopping frenzy (because we all needed more fabric, right?). The weather cooperated nicely and the walk to the dining room not only gave us a chance for some fresh air and exercise but it was actually enjoyable! Now I’m looking forward to next year’s retreat which Alison will be organizing. — Carol K
Our next retreat is planned for March 7 -10, 2022 at Edenvale Retreat Centre and there is only one space left. If you are interest in attending, please contact Carol K to secure your space or to get your name on the waiting list if that space gets filled. We all know how circumstances can change and no deposit is required until a space becomes available.
Retreats are so much fun and even if you aren’t successful in getting a spot in 2022 you might want to consider signing up early for 2023 (anytime after March 10, 2022).
