Guild Retreat

. . . 'Show's Over. . . . 
. . . Mini Mod's been put to bed  . . . .

. . . . What's next?

The Guild Retreat, of course!

Catherine Porter is another of those Guild Members who quietly go about creating and administering the amazing calendar of events that The Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc offer each year.

The Guild Retreat is Catherine's "baby" and as Retreat Co-ordinator she is hoping to meet many more members at this years' weekend away in The Hunter Valley.

Last year's happy quilters at Blackheath still smiling after two and a half days of grinning, chatting and concentrating!

Catherine promises a weekend of comfortable accommodation, shopping, laughing, wining and dining, and....oh yes....quilting!

The venue, The Hunter Valley Hotel Academy is only 2 hours from Sydney, has plenty of room for the quilter who brings a mountain of stash who needs space to create, and professes to offer lovely food, wine tasting and  ground floor access to all rooms.
This will be the room for sewing at Kurri Kurri, sporting plenty of power outlets for the machine enthusiast as well as for those who like to bring extra lighting. Tables will be provided.

What to sew? Well, any of your own personal projects. Maybe now is the time to break the back of the 2015 Red and White Challenge. All members are welcome: beginners, experienced and experts, and when Catherine uses the words "friendly" and "productive" when describing previous retreats, it is obvious that attendees are in for a treat - at this year's retreat!

Details about the weekend can be found on page 10 of the May issue of The Template.
The booking form needs to be filled out promptly and returned with payment to the Guild Office
Retreat Dates : Friday - Sunday 12-14 September 2014

Final Payments are due August 29
