2022 Fall Quilt Retreat

What:            RETREAT – IT’S PARTY TIME!
When:         
  September 21-25, 2022 (Wednesday through Sunday at noon)
Where:         
 The Hive (think Beehive Quilt Shop),
                         704 N. Washington, Wellington, KS 67152

So, as you know by now Prairie Quilt Guild sponsored retreat is coming up – and I know you all will be impressed with the facility selected for this retreat. You will find a registration form on the PQGKS website. There you will also find all the information about “The Hive” there as well. As background into the reasoning as to why this particular location was selected are:

—          It is a newish location for most to attend a retreat.
—          It is a beautiful place well equipped for a retreat.
—          The amenities are great — including real twin beds with regular
              mattresses and not bunk beds with a “hard as a rock” mattress.
—          The “no frills” costs involved.
—          We don’t need as many attendees so hopefully cancellation will not be an
              issue because of numbers.

Just a note/reminder regarding costs:
The Hive has made their location affordable to everyone. The complete rate is as follows:
16 attendees @ $160/person; 12 attendees @ $200/person. I did make the decision to list the cost per attendee at $180.00 (which will be the rate for 14 attendees) — my reasoning for this was that I would rather ask for an additional $20.00 per attendee (and not $40) if there are only 12 that plan on attending; and to refund $20.00 to those attending if there are 16 attending. Please remember that although this is a guild sponsored event, it is self-sustaining, meaning that we must (hopefully) balance out to $000 once the retreat is complete.
Please read all the information provided both here and on the PQGKS website, download a registration form and either mail it to me (address in directory) or bring it to either the afternoon or evening guild meeting in July along with your deposit or payment in full.

I do hope this answers the questions you might have, but if you do have some further questions, please contact me either by email or at the upcoming July meetings.

Kids’ Camp Is Back!

19 – 23 July 2022 OR 25 – 29 July 2022

This Camp will feature Half Square Triangles and Flying Geese. Projects made during Camp will include a tote, a pin cushion, a thread catcher, tool organizer and quilt top. Campers must be at least 8 years of age (before 1st day of Camp) with some basic knowledge/experience of a sewing machine. Each Camper must have a Sponsor who is a member of Prairie Quilt Guild. The Sponsor must sit with and assist the Camper each day. A sponsor may only sponsor one Camper at a time. The $25 Camp Enrollment Fee must be paid before or at the June Prairie Quilt Guild meeting. At that time, the Camp Booklet will be given to the Sponsor. The Booklet gives fabric requirements so fabric can be procured before the Camp. Payment must be made to secure a spot at Kids’ Camp. Enrollment is limited to 20 Campers per Camp. We anticipate the Camps will fill quickly, so we recommend early registration/payment.
