The Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild is planning a weekend retreat for January 2012 and they’ve kindly opened up 25 spots for Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild members. This will be a great chance for members of the two guilds to build on the friendships started by our upcoming potholder swap! The FVMQG held their first retreat at Camp Luther in March 2011 and you can see a set of retreat photos in Cynthia Frenette’s flickr photostream. If you’d like to register, you can get in touch with Charline Derksen of the FVMQG directly. If you have questions, you can also post them on the FVMQG’s very active facebook page.
