Summer RETREAT: June 27-30, 2019



Our first summer retreat will be held at the Canyon Inn, McCormick’s Creek State Park in Spencer, Indiana from June 27–30, 2019.

You’ll be able to register for Thursday - Sunday, June 27-30, 2019 or for Friday - Sunday, June 28-30, 2019.

Why go to a quilting retreat?  The reasons are endless, but any Guild member who has been on a retreat will tell you that it's a delightful way to take a break from your daily life with concentrated time to work on your projects, have fun with friends new and old, and relax in a beautiful setting.  Finish those UFOs, make a community quilt, or learn a new technique from one of our many talented members.  It's all possible at a BQG retreat! We'll look forward to seeing you there and will be ready with games, prizes, and fun.

According to the park website, you can “explore the spectacular limestone canyon, flowing creek, and scenic waterfalls that highlight Indiana’s first state park.” There are many trails for hiking or horseback riding. It’s a beautiful place for photography as well.
