Spring Get-A-Way

2020

February 26 - March 4th

It's Pajama Party time at Lake Okoboji Lutheran Bible Camp and you’re invited!

 

You can wear loose fitting Pj’s with elastic waists and slippers all week.   It’s time to call out for pizzas, crank up the record player, and do each other’s hair. Are you ready to party? And by party, we mean quilt! Bring your favorite quilt projects and we’ll have some new projects for you to try as well! 

 

Jeanne Johnson will be teaching Card Trick and Disappearing Pinwheel Baskets from The Block magazine. Billie will teach a bag class and table runner.  Shelley and D'Ann  from the Quilted Forest will teach some smaller projects. 

 

For those coming on Wednesday  the 27th through Sunday March 1st there will be  small projects offered through the week. Bring your UFO’s and finish those projects you have been meaning to get to. Free sewing time is so hard to find, we have the solution.

 

Sunday  the 1st  - through Wednesday the 4th  classes are offered. Please register for these .  We have teachers and classes for these days.

 

Move in and make yourself at home with your sewing machine and quilting supplies. The Quilted Forest will be there for needed items as well as beautiful fabrics.  We want this time to be relaxing and productive for you. 

 

Your meals are prepared so no worries about food or cleaning up for our retreators. Our menu will once again be a Brunch - Dinner meal schedule. If you have dietary concerns please let the chef know when you arrive. All meals will be covered with the exception of the first Wednesday. We will also have a snack table so bring some treats to share with your fellow retreaters.

 

Mindy will be offering pedicures, manicures, hair cuts, etc.  You can register for Mindy’s services when you arrive.

We all speak "Quilt" so communication should be easy. You can arrive anytime after 9 am Wednesday and stay 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 we welcome you to come at 3:00 pm. 

 

We are happy to offer classes each day (Monday, March 2nd through Wednesday the 4th ) for you to . Patterns and instructions are posted on the website so you can get started choosing your fabrics and cutting out your projects. If you have any questions please refer  the teacher’s contact information on the website.  

 

Don’t forget  bedding and towels.  (There is a queen bed and twin beds in each room in Altahaus.  Christopher house offers twin beds only. Many ladies just bring a sleeping bag which will fit on any bed.

 

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

 

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 the store with loads of fabric, kits, notions, books and patterns.  D’Ann, Shelley’s side kick, will be there as well.  It is always so great to have them on site.


 

 

 

 

 

 

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

The pajama parade will be Saturday night for those who want to participate. Let's see some of those crazy things you consider "Bed Wear" (bare naked is not 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.

 

That’s it for now.  I look forward to seeing you again this year.

Please remember that Okoboji Bible Camp is an alcohol free facility.

Important note:

We are limiting the number of attendees to 60 retreaters so there will be ample sewing space for everyone. This means you need to register soon to secure your place

 

The past two years I have had to turn away a few women who wanted to come on Sunday and stay through Wednesday to accommodate others who wanted to stay “just one more night”.  Everything depends on registration.  If you wish to stay over Sunday please note that on your registration and I will let you know if it will work. We may not be able to allow people to stay over Sunday night.  It all depends on the numbers.
