That’s right. Sing it like Barry Manilow. “This one’s for YOU!” You’ve spent so much time making quilts to give to others. Hours and hours of holiday sewing… Join us for a UFO Retreat where you can devote two days to sewing whatever UFOs (Un-Finished Objects) YOU choose. We all have quilts in various stages; blocks that just need to be sashed together, quilts that just need that binding sewn on, projects all cut out but we just need a couple of days interruption free to sit and piece them together, oh, and kits that we haven’t even cracked open yet.  Pack them up and spend two days sewing non-stop!  While overnight accommodations will not be provided, the retreat fee of $89.00 per person will include lunch both Friday and Saturday, games, prizes, swag, snacks and lots of fun!  A break for dinner will be allowed Friday evening after which sewing will continue late into the night.  We look forward to finishing some quilts with YOU!

Our retreat center has the following available for your use:

  • Tables to set up your sewing machines
  • Chairs
  • Power strips for plugging in
  • Cutting tables
  • Ironing boards and irons
  • Kitchen

 You will need to bring:

  • Sewing Machine* in good working order. Don’t forget your foot pedal & power cord!
  • Chair – If you have a sewing chair you prefer to use you may bring it, otherwise we have plenty.
  • Thread
  • Bobbins
  • Extra needles
  • Seam Ripper
  • Pins
  • Scissors
  • Rotary Cutter
  • Cutting Ruler
  • Cutting Mat (There will be some there if you would rather not bring your own.)
  • Best Press or spray sizing
  • Marking tools
  • UFO project(s) of your choosing. Remember patterns, fabrics, rulers, templates, etc… as needed for your project.

 

More UFO Retreat Fun:

  • Show-and-tell – we love to see your finished projects so bring a favorite for our show-and-tell.
  • Treat Buffett – bring one bag of a small, favorite treat to share with the group (optional).
  • Swap Zone – in locating UFOs, did you come across fabric or patterns you are ready to part with? Bring them to the Swap Zone. You’ll know your treasures are going to another loving quilter’s home and you just might find something else you have to have. Just one rule, if your items aren’t picked up by another retreat member, they must go home with you.
  • Swag, games and prizes!
