Hard to believe summer is coming to an end, kids are heading back to school and the days are getting shorter.  That must mean it is time for a quilt retreat! 
My retreat this year is Tuesday Oct 4 to Friday Oct 7th at the Pilgrim Center on Green Lake in Ripon Wisconsin.  We have a lot of fun sewing, shopping, eating, and enjoying the company of other quilters. You bring your own projects to work on.  (We all have lots of unfinished projects!)  The food is great.  There are good places to walk.  The sleeping rooms are nice.   What more could you ask for? 
Here is a picture of our "costume party" we had last year.

My theme for this year is Potluck.  We will exchange food related fabric that you can use to make a table runner or market bag.  We will do a recipe exchange and some other food related activities.  I will have a simple apron pattern that you can choose to make if you want.   The cost for the overnight accommodations, 8 meals and sewing time is $220.  (Cheap therapy!)
About 1 month before the event I will send you the specific information of what you need to bring to the retreat and specifically what we are planning on doing.   Some of you have already signed up for the fun.   
Here are many of us holding the table runner we made last year!table runner mania.JPG 
Anyone is welcome.  Bring  a friend.  We will have a great time and I hope that many of you can come!  I limit the number to about 30 people so sign up soon to reserve your spot.  Let me know if you have any questions.
Please pass this onto anyone who you think might be interested.
See you soon!

P.S. My open lab classes start at the church in Brookfield on Sept 12th 9-3.  Let me know if you want to come or need more information.
Chris Kirsch and I went to move into our new classroom at Waukesha County Technical college.  It is very nice.  Both of us still have room in our classes so those classes can be a creative outlet for you this fall too!  Click here to register.You do not need to be a Waukesha County resident to take a class.
