7th Annual Retreat Recap!

The 7th Annual has came and went…many, many months ago! It’s not too late, however, to think about the fun we had last year in anticipation for our 8th annual retreat coming September of 2019!

The Happy Valley Conference Center hosted us again this year. We were close to Santa Cruz but felt so far away. We were able to spread out and sew, eat delicious food, and enjoy our creative community without interruption.

Thank you for Lori for organizing games and adding a little friendly competition to the retreat!

We have such a supportive community. Here a few members discuss layout and share creative advice.

Lastly, thank you to our sponsors! We couldn’t have done any of this without you!

October 2018 Meeting Recap

Our October meeting began with our annual scrap swap. Prints, solids, even Hello Kitty fabric made an appearance! Several members also sold handmade items and larger swatches of fabric.

Two board members were out of town for this month’s meeting so Darlene and Mo held down the fort! They announced the annual dues ($50 paid by cash, check or PayPal) and openings for the Jen Carlton Bailly Workshop on January 27th.


Isabelle spoke about the progress on the Quilt Con Charity Quilt and showed her quilt in the 2019 Quilter’s Planner. She’s featured in the month of October. Everyone check it out!

Several members brought quilts to show the group.



Next month’s meeting will take place on Election Day. Don’t forget to vote before coming to the meeting! Can’t wait to see you there!
