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. email@example.com
