BREAKING NEWS: The UFOs (Un-Finished Objects) sightings continue in and around Utah County. Corn Wagon Quilt Co.’s first UFO Retreat was such a success we have resolved to take further action. Lead investigator, Chris Chamberlain, is quoted as saying, “The mysteries surrounding these UFOs continue to unfold. We must be diligent in our efforts toward a piece-ful resolution.” Eye-witness, Jen Tanner, agrees, “While progress has been made, we can do sew much more!” Further action will include a two-day retreat for those affected by the UFO sightings. Energy will be devoted entirely to addressing the UFOs (and eating goodies). Those joining will be surrounded by others who have been through similar UFO experiences. 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, games, prizes, aforementioned goodies and lots of fun. 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 per person
