Location: The Gathering Place on Hobble Creek (385 S. 400 E. Springville – Lower Level)

 

BREAKING NEWS: An undisclosed number of UFOs (Un-Finished Objects) have been sighted in and around Utah County. Corn Wagon Quilt Co. has resolved to take action. Lead investigator, Chris Chamberlain, is quoted as saying, “I vow to get to the bottom of the mysteries surrounding these UFOs.” Eye-witness, Jen Tanner, agrees, “The UFOs can no longer be ignored! Something must be done.” Further action will include a two-day retreat for those affected by the UFO sightings. Energy will be devoted entirely to addressing the UFOs. Those joining will be surrounded by others who have been through similar UFO experiences. “This may only be the beginning of a long battle with UFOs but our goal is to leave this retreat with a resolution!” Attendees are asked to bring any UFO evidence that might assist in getting to the bottom of what has clearly become a problem. While overnight accommodations will not be provided, the UFO Retreat fee will include lunch both Friday and Saturday. A break for dinner will be allowed Friday evening after which UFO action will resume late into the night. As UFOs have become a growing concern amongst our community and space is limited, we recommend reserving your seat early.

Retreat Fee: $79 Minimum attendees 10 and Maximum 20. 10% off Class fee does not apply

 

(Corn Wagon Quilts has a few Bernina sewing machines that may be reserved ahead of time on a first come, first serve basis.)

Please call or come in to sign up for this fun retreat!

(Fabric shown is ‘Space Age’ by Jamie Wood of Clothworks – Isn’t it fitting for this retreat?  This cute fabric isn’t for a specific class project.  Fabric is available if you want to start your own “UFO” project for the retreat though! ;))
