Gather your best quilty friends for a RETREAT or QUILT-ALONG!
Pack your bag, dah-ling! Sewing bag, that is... It's always the right time for a quilt retreat! This week I'm writing from Ruby's Inn at Bryce Canyon National Park where we have a booth at the Quilty Friends Winter Retreat. It may be frigid outside (currently 10 degrees) but we're keeping plenty warm next to humming sewing machines and the kindest quilting hearts. There's something special about gathering with like-minded sewists to learn, stitch, share and get some serious sewing done. Strangers become instant friends when the common thread of quilt-making binds us.
Gather your best quilty friends and host your own heartwarming retreat at Corn Wagon Too! It's an environment designed to nurture your creativity and friendship. With three different sewing rooms available to rent, you and your guests will have plenty of room to spread out your projects and sew the day (or week?) away without the distractions of the daily grind. We invite you to visit our website under the retreat tab for a full list of amenities and to view our availability calendar. While overnight accommodations are not provided onsite, you'll find a full kitchen and dining area in the lower level and a list of hotels nearby with direct links on our website. Perhaps the best part is having the quilt shop conveniently next door? We're here to tempt you! Our newest addition to Corn Wagon Too is a lift for easier access to our upper level rooms! That's right! No more lugging heavy machines upstairs. Book your retreat today by calling the shop (801) 491-3551. It's a fun way to celebrate a quilty friend's birthday, a great place to gather your guild for a sew day or just simply dedicate time to finishing projects together.
