6th Annual Quilt Retreat

The SBAMQG 6th Annual Retreat has come and gone, but out what a fun time we had! The weekend, October 19-22, was chilly but we stayed warm under our in-progress creations as we sewed feverishly into the night (and early, early morning). This was our biggest retreat every, with 23 attendees sewing up a storm!

The retreat wouldn’t have been possible without our gracious sponsors who helped up fill our amazing retreat buckets stitched up by our retreat committee!

Starting our #sbamqgretreat2017 with some great swag from our sponsors!

While our group missed almost every hike (we had important things to stitch up don’t yah know?) we did get pretty active when it came to play games (with prizes!).
