QuiltNSW Retreat - 13/14 - 16 September 2018

The 2018 QuiltNSW Retreat is fast approaching and there are a number of places still available for QuiltNSW members. The weekend is always most enjoyable with plenty of time for sewing and socialising. No set tasks or expectations, just come along and do as little or as much as you want. Only two hours north of Sydney it is an easy drive to Kurri Kurri where the retreat is held.

If you have never been to a retreat before make this year your first. You are bound to have a good time and meet new and possibly old friends too. For those who have been in previous years and haven't booked in yet please get your booking in soon - you won't want to miss this one!

Bookings can be made online or by phoning the office. All information and pricing is in the May 2018 issue of The Template.
