Quilt Retreat at Camp Cheerio, NC is a GO!!

It will be the weekend of Sept. 5-8, 2013. We will gather Thursday afternoon, and have our first meal at dinnertime. We will have open sewing time all weekend until Sunday. (We may still have mini-workshops or tutorials periodically) Our last meal will be a bag lunch on Sunday, or you can take it with you if you need to hit the road early. That's 9 meals!

We will again sleep in the Millis Lodge with hotel style rooms, and private baths. Some rooms have twin beds, some have queen beds, some bunk beds, some have both and all have bathrooms. Bed linens and towels are provided.

We will have the 2nd floor of Sloan Center again for our sewing space. Last year's setup seemed to work very well, so I'll go for that same layout. There will be a maximum of 21 spaces for sewing. Husbands are also welcome, but we don't count them in our sewing space allowances.

Cost for 9 meals, sleeping accommodations in the lodge for 3 nights, and sewing space comes to $230 this year. A non-refundable deposit of $40 per person is due ASAP to hold your spot (and to allow me to pay the required group deposit to the camp). Balance is due at the conclusion of camp Sunday morning.

We are scheduled earlier in the Fall this year due to camp schedules, so there will be no Fall foliage to view, and I doubt we'll need sweaters/coats. But from what I've seen on their Facebook page, the weather should be beautiful!! I'm truly looking forward to getting away from my rat race and decompressing for a few days!

Spots are first open to any quilter who has already come to any retreats in the past. After August 6th, I will open remaining spots on a first-come-first-served basis.

Please sign up, and if you have any questions, past participants can help answer, you can search here for past Retreat threads that are likely to have more details, and I am happy to help in any way!!

Alright, so you can tell me on Aug 7th then, huh? Let your doctor know you have a trip planned so that he can give you a pass so you can go!!


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

I can't make it this year. My mother has some surgeries with rehab for a few weeks after (hopefully only a few!) so I'm staying close to home.

Last year was so much fun! The camp is so scenic, staff is friendly, good food, and excellent companions!

Have a lot of fun everyone and please post lots of pics for this of us left behind.

Is anyone driving to Atlanta after camp? Or in that direction for aways?


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Sorry to be taking myself off the list but the doctor says I have to have my rotator cuff fixed in my shoulder the week before. I'll be too spaced out on drugs to drive or enjoy our get together. But, I'll see you next year.

For medical reasons I can't attend this year, but I'll make it a top priority for next year. I will miss everyone and look forward to the pictures.

RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Even though my eye is progressing nicely and I now have no restrictions (woohoo), I'm still blind in one eye and can't see out of the other! Doc wants to see me one more time but has released me to go back and see the dr who did the cataract surgery and see about getting glasses. I am so sorry, but I cannot be counted on for this year.

RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

I've received deposits from Valarie, Kate, Katherine, Robbi, and Jackie

Sign Up is now open to any others that wish to join us this year!!


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

I am very excited about this year!!! I have a timer set on my phone. Only 25 days left!!!

Robbi


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Robbi...Will dear jane be with you this year? or perhaps the baltimore album quilt? I remember both, thought both were spectacular and am curious how you have progressed.

 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Alas, for the second year, I will not be able to attend.


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Jen, the check's in the mail! LOL

(no really...... it is)

Teresa


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

LOL I'll keep my eyes open for it!

Most details will not have changed for this year. There will still be a quilt show, so bring what you can/wish to share.

We have the Quilt Challenge to vote for, of course!

Retreat gifties...if you wish to do so.

If anyone wants to share a tutorial idea, just pull together instructions or any required preparations. I can email it to the group if you wish. (I don't have anything in mind this year, so it may be a free-sew weekend if no one else has anything!)

We will do "Two Minute Tips". This can be any sewing tip, storage tip, pressing tip or quick technique that might be new to the others. Feel free to bring 1 or 2 "two minute tips" to share!!

Left-Right-Center game: I'm open to any shape/size...someone make a suggestion!


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

I suggest 5" squares (in case there is another Nickel Quilt in my future).


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Are we going to do the Chinese Gift Exchange thing again?


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Let's do 5" charms in any colors...totally scrappy.

Has anyone already made ready for the Chinese Exchange?

watch for 2013 retreat packing lists, coming soon to a camper like you!


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

The one yard fabric exchange might be fun and easy.

I'm good with sewing all weekend.

Like the idea of sharing Tips.

Here is a link that might be useful: One Yard fabric exchange


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

I have gifties completed, but no Chinese Exchange made or thought even about :~)


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

I have made something for the Chinese exchange, but it is something that I would be glad to keep for myself. LOL So I can go either way.

Jackie


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

5" scrappy charms - good idea!
Gifties - not done, but I have a plan.
Chinese exchange - i have something but can go either way on this.
Yard exchange - i could do that.

Whatever we plan, I'm just excited it's almost time for the trip!

Kate


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

You'll have to fill me in on the Chinese exchange if its something we are going to do. I missed last year (booooo) so I don't know what you mean.

How many 5" charms should I bring?

note to self..... get that challenge done.....


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

5" scrappy charms - sounds fine to me-How many??

gifties are made...good with that

chinese gift exchange...have no idea,but will think on it..

yard exchange...how does that work?

I spent too much time fretting over the challenge...my own issue, so I'm happy with sewing all weekend...lots of projects on my list!

RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Valarie,

I have all but 20 blocks done of the dear jane. I was hoping to have them all done so I could finish assembling it at the retreat. I do have all but 3 rows and the borders assembled The baltimore album hasn't had much done. Of the 3 blocks I need to do, I am just about finished with one. I hope to have a second one in progress to work on at the retreat, too.

I can't believe we have only 3 weeks til the retreat and I don't have any gifts or a Chinese exchange ready.

How many gifts do I need to make?

Robbi


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Okay, so executive decision time!

5" charms - in any color - bring 20

gifties - at this point 10 people coming, so you'd want to have 9

Chinese Exchange - >NO< we won't do this this year!

Fabric Exchange - This could be fun. So, bring 1 yard of a jewel tone fabric. Could be batik or tone-on-tone. Make it something you love because you'll be taking home a large chunk of it. (This is fun! but I will be cringing while we do it!)

Don't forget a fall fabric for your tree's leaf! We'll add to the camp quilt.

that's all for now.
from your cruise director, jen

Yup! 10 campers this year.... Bring lots of projects to work on...we'll have lots of space to spread out!

Two weeks ago when I saw slots weren't all filled, I seriously started considering coming, even went and found flights to Charlotte and looked into car rental and figured my budget. When I unexpectedly got a new baby. Well not a human baby (well past that here) but became the mamma for a 8 week old puppy. So home I'll stay but will watch for lots of sharing here by those of you at Camp Cheerio. Know you'll have a great time at retreat. How about some videos of the games?


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Ginnie,

Oh, I wish you'd come! But maybe we'll let you off the hook if you share a picture of the new baby with us.... just maybe...Congrats!


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Jennifer, et al, Guess I forgot how to do the photo thing here. Hope this works this time. If not I'll just try again. (Hoping) here are a couple pictures of my new puppy and my old one. New one was 8 wks when I got her, now 9 wks. I named her Adeline Darryl Rose. Old one is named Phoney Peony. :) Addie isn't quite as well-behaved as Peony but she's a lot more fun, if not a bit tiring. It's tough being a new mommy at 65.


 o
Second pic of Addie (I hope)

Maybe works this time


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Now isn't she precious!

Okay, so I'll forgive you for not coming to retreat, though you could have waited until after retreat ;)


 o

Hope you all have a wonderful time at Retreat this year. Wish I could be with you again - maybe next year!

RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Sorry the retreat is too early this year for our annual return to FL......I know that everyone will enjoy the weekend, and I will be regretting not joining y'all. I think Rip will miss it too.....all those goodies!


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Thanks for the kind words about my puppy. She's a sweetie and a good girl, most of the time.

Really do wish I could come. Maybe next year. But I have heard a story that the place is just infested with mice. This picture was posted on Facebook recently.


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

EEeeeek!! Yikes! Who'd want to come to retreat with those around?!?


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Love to eat dem mousies, mousies what I love to eat. Bite their little heads off, nibble on they tiny feets.

Adorable puppy! I have a new 8 week old baby too. Mine's a tabby kitten named Boo.

 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Boo is adorable! Do you think he would enjoy a mouse as much as Bev ???


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

I will make a mouse for, Boo.

beverly


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Boo is adorable and I'm sure she'd love it that you're going to make her her very own mouse. As far as eating the mice, I think you all should be required to sing the ditty Bev posted above before gobbling them down. When I posted that photo on FB, my niece asked if there were any blind mice. What I've learned from studying animal behavior is that the wounded and certain types of animals are often disproportionately susceptible to predators and that's why she didn't see any blind ones or any chocolate brown ones.


 o
RE: Official 2013 Quilt Retreat SignUps

Boo would love a mouse!
