Bittersweet Retreat #1 Sept 24-27, 2020

Bittersweet Quilts is very pleased and excited to sponsor our annual Fall Christian Women’s Quilting Retreat. This is a chance to get away from the daily pressures of life and fellowship with other women while finishing a project or two. The retreat is not limited to quilting, however. You may bring knitting, crochet, embroidery, tatting, scrapbooking or whatever your favorite craft may be.

The retreat is held on a 40 acre church campground facility located near Racine, MO.  The cost of the retreat is $170.00 which includes lodging, meals prepared and cleaned up, demos and giveaways.  Lodging options are dormitory style, cabins which accommodate up to six or RV hookup. If you want/need a cabin to yourself we can accommodate this request. The shower facility is located down the hallway if you are in the dormitory, down the pathway for the cabins and RVers-well you’ve got it made. There is a short daily devotional, great food, opportunities to shop at Bittersweet Quilts, plenty of time to finish your UFOs and lots of fun!!  

The $170.00 fee is payable upon registration. In order to be fair to everyone, we cannot hold your space or pencil in your name. Please make checks payable to Bittersweet Quilts. Visa, Master Card, Discover or good ole cash are all accepted. Space is limited so do not delay registering. If your plans unexpectedly change, a full refund is given 30 days prior to the start of the retreat or a 50% refund is given two weeks prior to the start of the retreat.  After that time there is a NO REFUND/NO HOLDOVER policy.
