Update on 2017 Retreat Information

The Q.U.I.L.T. guild’s annual Retreat to the Hills is being revamped and is being put on/hosted by Liz Ewing and Amy Rollins.  It will be held this year at Camp Egan, a Methodist Camp and Retreat Center located in the rolling hills of Eastern Oklahoma, near Tahlequah on highway 62.  The dates will be August 25-27.  Pricing includes 6 meals, beginning Friday night, but varies depending on the number of people per room, from $130 – $240. Please contact Liz:  liz1111ewing@cox.net   or    liz4018ewing@gmail.com    for more information or to register.

Guild no longer sponsoring retreat

Just a quick post to let you know that Q.U.I.L.T. is no longer sponsoring a retreat in October.  However, Liz Ewing has stepped up and will be offering an opportunity for those of you who love to attend those retreats.  She is still in the planning stages, but it looks to be taking place in Oklahoma.  If you are interested in attending this new retreat, please contact Liz individually for information and details.  liz1111ewing@cox.net
