Charity Quilts


March retreat registration

The signup for the March 2013 retreat is now online!  Click on the "AMQG Retreat" tab at the top of the blog to sign up. 


Just a few updates on retreats:
  • Wimberley Quilt Ranch raised the prices for guests, so that cost is being absorbed into your cost.  The new prices for Austin MQG'ers are: $125 for two nights, $65 for 1 night, and $40 for the day. 
  • Payment must be paid in full when you sign up.  Payment is still via PayPal.
  • If the minimum has not been met by January 31st, then the retreat will be canceled.  What is the minimum?  6 retreaters for both Friday and Saturday nights.  Recruit your friends! 
If you have not been to a retreat before, consider going! 


Top 10 reasons to attend an Austin Modern Quilt Guild retreat

1.  The fantastic workroom!  Three large cutting mats, a table for your sewing machine and projects, design walls, and three irons and ironing boards. 
2.  Finally finishing those UFOs. 
3.  Inspiration and guidance from other quilters.  Or just covet their fabric collection.
4.  Late night laugh sessions.
5.  Valli & Kim is 15 minutes away, if you have a fabric emergency or need to a stash update.
6.  If you have kids, getting a kid-free weekend. If you don't have kids, its still a kid-free weekend!
7.  Bobbin!  Sewing can be turned into a drinking game. 
8.  Comfortable memory foam mattresses. Don't forget your pillow!
9.  Morning coffee and early morning laugh sessions.
10.  Quilting friends.  Because your other friends just don't get it.
