A members-only Retreat is held in January or February at a nearby location from Thursday evening through Sunday lunch. The stress-free time is spent quilting, relaxing and enjoying good fellowship. Often a few guild members will hold workshops, but many choose to catch up on existing projects or just enjoy the freedom of doing nothing. Room, meals and workspace are provided for a reasonable fee. Space is limited by the size of the facility and registration is on a first paid basis in the fall.
