Limited space available in our 1st quilting retreat!

Looking for a day-long getaway full of great food, fun people, and, of course, tons of quilting? The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild’s first-ever retreat is for you! Limited spaces are available and your last chance to sign up is at our meeting this Thursday, January 20th.

The retreat will take place in beautiful Lions Bay, BC (just north of Horseshoe Bay). Just look at the amazing view from the hall!

In this gorgeous setting, you’ll have your own table with plenty of room to create! You’ll also enjoy delicious food all day long. There will also be door prizes! The retreat is being organized by the talented Krista Hennebury (a new VMQG member!) who is experienced in running great retreats that come highly recommended.

Here’s VMQG member Laurraine happily at work at one of Krista’s previous retreats. Laurraine wrote a glowing review on her blog about her first ever quilt retreat.

Are you ready to join in the fun?
