Overnight Retreat News


I'm happy to say that our next overnight retreat scheduled for Mother's Day weekend, May 10-12, is full. If you have a balance due, please plan to pay it off at this Monday's meeting, April 9th. You're welcome to use your credit card if you'd like. Also, please let me know of any dietary restrictions you may have so that I can let the Retreat Center know when I confirm our reservation next week.

The Fall Retreat is also booked and waiting for your sign-up. It will be held September 20-23. You may choose to arrive either Thursday or Friday for this one and there are still several openings.

Our January 2019 Winter Retreat is reserved for Monday thru Thursday, January 21-24. Grab a quilting buddy or two and get signed up now for next year.

As of now, in order to reserve your spot for our Overnight Retreats, a deposit of $100 is due, $50 of which is non-refundable if you have to back out and we can't find someone to take your spot. It's always a good idea to put your name on the Waiting List if you want to join us but just can't commit right now. There is no charge for that. In order to secure your spot, though, you must pay a deposit when you sign up. I will be happy to take payments and you can also pay using your credit card.

All three of our overnight retreats are held at Vina de Lestonnac Retreat Center in Temecula. For prices and more information, please con-tact me in person, by phone, text, or email.

The daytime retreat planning is in full swing. All you partiers will receive your welcome packs at the January 22nd Guild meeting!

The packs should have everything you need to know about who, what and where, just don’t ask why!

We have already started planning our next daytime retreat and can tell you it will be in July, (either the 14-15 or 21-22), sign ups will be announced once we have a solid date.

Yard Sale!!

Don’t forget to bring a shopping bag (and money!!) to the First Annual Quilters Yard Sale! Monday night, April 9th!

Sellers should be there at 5:30 to set up, bring a cover for your “wares”, we will open up to shopping after an abbreviated meeting and don’t forget something to hold your money!

This is a great way to de-stash and make room for more treasures!!

Any questions, please contact Debbie Warner!!

Daytime Retreat News

We have already started planning our next daytime retreat and can tell you it will be July 7-8, sign ups will be at the May meeting,

as always, you must pay the full amount at the time of sign up.

If there is more than 24 people interested, we will have to go to lottery, sorry, but we want to keep it spacious for everyone.

We had a wonderful time at our last retreat and

know the next one will be just as fun!

As a reminder, we are trying to arrive at the meeting site early enough to cool it down and get organized before you arrive, so please be patient and aware that unless you are a chairperson setting up, the doors will NOT open until 6:30.
