QA sponsors two quilting retreats each year, held at Camp Huston, in the Cascade foothills near Gold Bar. Retreat is an opportunity to focus on nothing but your quilting projects.
Spring retreat runs for five days and four nights in early April while Fall retreat runs six days and five nights in early November. Meals are provided. You can choose the length of your retreat, signing up for all days, coming up for one day, or anything in between. See the QA calendar for the dates of upcoming retreats.
There are no structured classes or workshops at retreat, and no instructors. Each attendee is assigned a workspace in one of five workrooms. You bring all your own quilting materials, sewing machine, and supplies to work on your own projects, at your own speed. If at any time during your stay a hike or nap seems more important than quilting, that’s fine too.
You are rubbing elbows with fellow quilters, so opinions, advice and help are always at hand. Periodic “walk-throughs” of the various workrooms will provide both education and inspiration. You will also build community with other QA members.
