The Retreat Committee announced at last night's meeting that 3 options have transpired for our 2017 Fall Retreat and we need your input.
The 1st choice is Seabeck, on Oct 6-8. This location was originally announced at a previous meeting. Seabeck is a hotel-type sleeping arrangement and would cost $185 for double, $205 for single occupancy. Sewing time starts at 4pm Friday and ends 9am Sunday. This location is limited to 16 people max and has very limited local quilt stores for emergency shopping.
The 2nd choice is a 2 day Staycation at VFW. This is the same location as our staycation in March. For this option, the dates would be Oct 13-14 and you would sleep in your own bed at home. Sewing time is 10am to midnight both Friday and Saturday. Cost is approx $60.00 per person, which covers both days. There is room for approx 18-20 sewists with lots of quilt stores nearby for any supplies.
The 3rd choice is Gwinwood in Lacey. This is the same location as the fall retreat last year. Dates for this location are Oct 6-8 and the cost is approx $135-160 per person, depending on how many sign up. Sleeping arrangements are similar to summer camp, with 4 to 6 per room. Sewing is Friday 10am through Sunday 1pm'ish. There is room for approx 20-22 with quilt stores are close by.
