Who’s in for a sleepover? The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild is planning our first ever overnight retreat! If you’ve never been on a quilting retreat before, prepare for hours and hours of cutting, pressing, sewing, laughing, eating, drinking, sharing ideas and fun, fun, fun. We won’t guarantee any sleep, but shenanigans are a given.
Our retreat will take place at Edenvale – a lovely retreat centre in Bradner (near Abbotsford). You can visit their website for photos and directions here. We’ll take over the full house: conference room, dining room and bedrooms. Everyone will have their own 6′ table to work on! The grounds and gardens are beautiful and include a walking trail through a forest on the property.
Here are the details:
Location: Edenvale Retreat Centre
Dates: Friday May 2 – Sunday May 4, with optional bonus night on Thursday May 1.
Check-in: 10:00 a.m. Friday
Check-out: 2:00 p.m. Sunday
Included: all meals, linen, work tables, ironing stations, extension cords and power bars
Accomodations: 2 – 3 persons sharing (no bunkbeds, everyone gets their own bed)
Cost: $265 for two nights
Payment: $50 non-refundable deposit at November meeting, final payment due March meeting.
*in order for the bonus night, we need to have 12 people who are willing to commit.
Sign-ups begin at the November meeting and require a $50 non-refundable deposit (which we will only cash once your spot on the retreat list is secured). If more than 20 people sign up, we will hold a lottery for the available 20 spaces, plus an additional 5 waiting list spaces. Sign ups will not be taken via email or telephone, so if you can’t make the meeting, please send your cash or cheque with a friend.
Please direct any questions to email@example.com and they will be forwarded to Krista Hennebury, who is organizing the retreat.
