winter Retreat: January 17-20, 2019

Our Winter Retreat is at Spring Mill State Park from January 17-20, 2019. You can register for Thursday - Sunday, January 17-20, 2019 or for Friday - Sunday, January 18-20, 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.

There are many interesting things to do at Spring Mill besides quilting. The Inn has a heated indoor swimming pool, fireplace lounge for relaxing, trails for walking, nature talks, and caves to explore. We will have more information on activities for you when you arrive at the retreat. Join your fellow quilters for a relaxing and productive weekend!
