1st Annual Quilters Anonymous Convention
 
(Enabling Fabriholics Everywhere) 
 
 Quilters-Get-Away in Milford, IA
 
At the Okoboji Lutheran Bible Camp
 
March 13th - March 20th

Welcome to our very first Quilter’s Anonymous Convention. As our members well know we gather together twice a year to enable each other in our craft. Once again this year we will have all kinds of special events planned for our retreat and we want you to be a part of it.

 

  • The very first step to recovery is to want to change. I had to say that, but I am sure that the majority if us just want to continue in our addiction. So we are providing ways to help you organize your quilt rooms, clever ideas for displaying fabrics, books, patterns and notions. We will have a UFO exchange for those of us who have a project we just do not want to finish.

  • We will provide a table where you can eliminate books, patterns and quilting items you no longer use or need. Bring your favorite quilt projects to work on and we’ll have some new projects for you to try as well! 

 

 

 

 

 

We are happy to offer classes each day (Monday, March 18th, the through Wednesday, March 20th). Patterns and instructions are posted below so you can get started right away choosing your fabrics and cutting out those quilts.

 

If you have questions we will refer you to the teacher’s contact information.Cathy Young will be teaching two quilts this spring Billie Hanson will be here with a bag and a quilt class. 

 

Sunday Night Project and a Mystery Quilt. (Kits from The Quilted Forest will be available for both) you can also take mini classes offered throughout the weekend to make smaller projects. These quilts can be started and finished in a day or less.

 

For those coming on Wednesday this will also be a time to finish up your UFO’s or just projects you have been wanting to finish. Bring all of your quilting items with you so that you can make yourself at home. 

 

We all speak "Quilt" so communication should be easy. 

You can arrive anytime after 7 am Wednesday and stay through until Sunday at 2:00 pm (Weekend Retreat) or Wednesday after brunch (Class Retreat) depending on your departure schedule. If you are arriving on Sunday will we welcome you at 3:00 pm. 

 

The Quilted Forest will once again bring fabric, kits, notions and quilting supplies for your enjoyment. Their shop will be open and available to all of you who are participating in retreat. Shelley will bring in more fabric than an addict can handle along with all sorts of kits, notions, books and patterns. D’Ann, Shelley’s side kick, will be there as well.

 

D’ann is our traveling salesman who peddles kits and other quilting items. She also demonstrates many items as she travels through the quilting rooms. We appreciate all the The Quilted Forest Shop brings to us. It is always so great to have them on site. 

 

Your meals will be made for you by the "Magnificent Kevin”.
Our menu will once again be a Brunch - Dinner meal schedule. If you have dietary concerns please let our chef, Kevin, know. All meals will be covered with the exception of the first Wednesday. We will also have a snack table so feel free to bring some treats to share with your fellow retreaters.

 

Pedicures, manicures, haircuts and more await you. These extras will be offered throughout the weekend

 

You will need to bring linens and towels. Each room has a queen bed and several standard twins. 

 

Show and Tell will be Saturday night . We hope you will all participate. We love to see what projects everyone has completed during the year.

 

We are also having a costume party for those who feel so inclined. Since we have an unusual theme you can dress in any costume you want. We hope to see many of you participate. THERE WILL BE PRIZES!. 

 

We are looking forward to fun filled days, great meals and wonderful and productive sewing sessions.

I am  hoping that this quilt pattern is a hit! Billie and I both like it. In fact, we just found out that we were both going to use this pattern!!  It is another good one for using up your stash of coordinating lights and darks.
