Quilting PhD Retreat

It’s time to gather up your unfinished projects and gather with friends.  This is your chance to work on furthering your Quilting PhD (Projects Half Done).  We all need to spend a little time together sharing, laughing and being together again.  We will begin on Friday, October 28th at 9:00 am and finish Saturday, October 29th after dinner.  This is a change from past retreats.  The registration fee covers the cost of meals (dinner Friday and Saturday lunch and dinner), retreat items and staff time.  Space is limited so sign up early.

Cost: $150
