You're Invited to the Okoboji Lutheran Bible Camp!

Don't miss the

Quilter's Get-Away in Milford, IA 

September 11th - September 18th

 

FOR THE

 

PERMANENT PAJAMA PARTY!

Hello fellow retreaters!

 

Retreat is fast approaching.  We are changing our theme to Pajama Party Central permanently.  That's right.  You can plan on wearing  your fuzzy slippers and PJ's for as many days as you like.  Relax, get some sewing done and let "Kevin" do the cooking.  Then next year we will do it all over again.

Let's see some of those crazy things you consider "Bed Wear". We want some stylin goin on!  Polka dots, stripes, crazy sox, foolish footwear and cuddly bears are acceptable.  No teddies please, we are looking for full coverage here. There will be prizes.

 

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. 

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.
