The Philly Modern Quilt Guild has set up its first retreat!
The retreat will be held at The White Oak B&B in Strausberg from Friday, September 30th to Sunday, October 2nd, 2011. The B&B's official address is 958 Eisenberger Road, Strasburg, PA and they seem very experienced at hosting quilting retreats!

The cost is $196 per person which includes all meals except Saturday's dinner. The only things you need to pack are your sewing machine and any other small supplies you can't live without - cutting boards, irons, and ironing boards will all be provided!

The deposit is $25 per person - please make the check payable to the Philly Modern Quilt Guild to reserve your spot. There are only 13 spots available but there is a minimum of 9 and so far only 8 have paid.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to comment here or email Candi Weinrick at

Also, don't forget, only paid guild members can participate!
Please mail your checks (labeled with "Retreat" in the memo section) to:

Philly Modern Quilt Guild
C/O Jaybird Quilts
PO BOX 100
Huntingdon Valley, PA 19006

  1. Oh, I cannot recommend this highly enough and if I wasn't already scheduled for an October retreat there myself, I'd indulge and go with MQG!

    I've gone 3 times with my own group - that has been going for many years - and it's a delightful weekend of sew-til-you-drop, of course close enough to shopping to do some real damage on a Saturday afternoon trip . . .

    Three of us were at the last MQG meeting (2 of us joined that night!) and I'll speak for all of us - you will love it.
