Retreat 2013-confirmed date

jennifer_in_vaJanuary 25, 2013

Hi Everyone!

I'll update on life in another post, but wanted to give everyone the confirmed dates for Retreat 2013.

Retreat will be Thurs. Sept 5 - Sun. Sept 8, 2013.

After looking at many dates, this was what was available. I've been assured that Camp Cheerio is lovely in September! This is the weekend after Labor Day weekend. We will be sharing camp with a group of Y-Princesses (the Y's equivalent to girl scouts). Our usual accommodations in the Lodge and Sloan Center (sewing space)

There will be a limit of 22 quilters, and when registration opens, it will be open to past participants first. Look for registration to be in late July.

I'm thinking there might be a quilt challenge for retreat this year... maybe a finished 20" quilt following some parameters, open to everyone here, not just campers. So keep your eyes open.

So, go mark your calendars and start planning your project lists!!

Jennifer

DS & his fiance are planning a late November wedding (unless they have changed that & not told us!), so that should work out just fine! Last night DH said I have to decide now if we are taking the RV or I am flying alone... So many decisions!

By the way, I like the idea of a small challenge quilt and am willing to give that a try, no matter what parameters you choose. Sounds like fun!

Robbi, I was a little concerned about it being so close to the start of school. Hopefully it won't be a problem.

Jennifer, school starts really early here, like August 12th. So, that part shouldn't be a problem for me. Being a holiday week, it will be hard to get any work done :-)

It makes me sad to say I won't be able to make it this year! Hope you all have a great time together.
