Twice each year, guild members have the opportunity to spend the weekend quilting and socializing.  You can quilt to your heart’s content, without anyone asking you "How long are you going to be quilting"? 

Breakfast, lunch & dinner are included so you don't even need to stop working to cook!

Retreats are held at The Incarnation Center in Essex, CT.  They offer a large bright sewing room for a maximum of 25 people....which fills up quickly.  Retreats are a great way to tackle your projects and get to know your fellow guild members better!
