10 reasons to retreat

If you've never been on a quilt retreat, you have been missing out. Know what you'll experience? 



  • collaboration -- encouraging words and helpful suggestions 
  • camaraderie -- infectious spirit and energy pumping creativity
  • sharing -- ideas, tools, reviews, blogs, viewpoints, suggestions
  • inspiration -- work you can admire and feed off of 
  • like-mindedness -- people understand what you're doing, and why you're doing it
Cheers to Bertha for
providing the wine!
  • social -- people who laugh with you, eat with you (drink with you) and celebrate with you
  • conversation -- amazing discussions of important issues in the quilt world
  • service -- someone begins with "Oh, I (forgot, need, can't find, don't have, etc.)" and "here use mine" is the ending, every time

Quilt wine!
  • laughter -- jokes are much funnier when everyone "gets it"
  • surprises -- (wonderful or shocking ones) both quilty and otherwise
