Retreats

Inaugural Cheat Retreat

If you crave quilting companionship, uninterrupted time to work on your projects, and if you have not been able to attend the Guild or Finley Grange retreats, White Bluffs Quilt Museum is offering an alternative - a zero-travel/low budget Quilt Till You Wilt on Sunday January 29th and Monday January 30th.

The Museum (294 Torbett, Richland) will open as early and close as late as retreaters request.  Set up with several ironing stations and design walls, it can accommodate up to 15 sewists.  There will be crock pots simmering in the kitchen; other snacks and side dishes will be potluck.

Cost is a bargain at $25/day - a fundraiser for the Museum.  It will follow on the heels of another fundraiser - the annual "local" shop hop (Janury 21-26).

Register and pay your nonrefundable fee at White Bluffs Quilt Museum or at the January Guild member meeting.

Retreat Twice A Year

Twice a year, up to 16 Tri-City quilters convene in Cove, OR with their sewing machines, UFOs, tools, gadgets, and snacks to spend some uninterrupted time sewing, laughing, and learning with friends.

The Guild books the Ascension School Camp & Conference Center usually in April and September.  Its accommodations include double rooms (two twin beds and a private bath); two are handicap accessible.

A kitchen (no stove/oven) is available to prepare uncooked meals, although 3 dinners and 3 breakfasts are included.  Cost is $80 per night plus $78 for meals.

Registration for the Spring 2023 retreat is now open on a first come, first served basis.  The dates are April 18-23, 2023.  Attendance is limited to 16.  Contact Ginny Coffman at ginnycoff@gmail.com for further information or to register.

Fall 2023 retreat is September 19-24, 2023.  Registration for the fall retreat opens on July 1, 2023.
