The Winter 2018 Quilt Retreat is February 1st – 4th, 2018 at TWU Hubbard Hall. Here are a few details:
Must Pay In Full to Reserve a Table. The biggest change is that you will need to pay in full to reserve
your table. So please coordinate with your friends so you can sit together. We will do our best to
accommodate everyone. Sorry, but we cannot hold tables.
Snack Guidelines: Please bring your own bottled water or soda. We will provide coffee, hot water,
cold tap water, and ice. There will be iced tea at each meal. Also bring a non-refrigerated / nonperishable snack to share (chips, cookies, candy, crackers, popcorn, donuts, etc). TWU has a Starbucks
on site, next door at the Library.
Note: TWU has very strict rules about outside food and perishable food. Therefore we cannot bring in
any meals, other than catering, from outside (hamburgers, tacos, sandwiches, etc). You can bring in a
fountain drink or coffee.
Retreat Hours: Start time each day is 7:30am, End time Thurs, Fri, Sat is 11:00pm and Sun is 3:00pm
Meals: Lunch each day at 12pm (noon) and dinner Th, F, Sa at 5:30pm. All meals are provided by
Extreme Cuisine Catering!
Chairs: We have plenty of banquet chairs if you need one. Many people bring their own chairs for
added comfort.
Retreat Garage Sale: We will have tables set-up, in the same room where we eat, to place any quilt
related items you would like to sell. Please clearly label with the price and your name.
Cutting Mats: We will have 4 tables with cutting mats available. Please bring your own ruler(s) and
rotary cutter.
Irons: We will have 5 irons with Big Boards placed around the room. Due to electrical limitations we
ask that you do not use an individual iron at your workstation as it may trip the breaker. If you have any
questions about this see Laura Harless at retreat. Table 8-1
Power Strips: There are power strips on the tables with 1 outlet for each person. Therefore it is
advised to bring your own power strip or extension cord to use if you need more than 1 outlet. Usually
other quilters at your table have one to share too. So coordinate with friends if necessary.
Door Prizes: We will have drawings at each meal, except Sunday. Must be present to win!
Fun, Fellowship, Friendship: Retreat is fun and there is nothing like the friendship established with
our quilting friends.
We are looking forward to seeing you,
Sherry Denton & Laura Harless
