Quilt Til You Wilt Retreat
Weekend Retreat Scheduled for Feb 22, 23, 24.
Join us for a 3-day weekend retreat dedicated to sewing, quilting, and crafting. This is a great opportunity to step away from the distractions of daily living to focus on whatever project you have been dreaming about. Stop in at Lickety Stitch beforehand to get all the supplies you need. Pick up a new project, a kit, or the sashing and borders for those blocks you have in a stack in your sewing room! Attack those UFO's, especially the ones you need some advice or help with, as there will be experienced quilters there to advise you. We realize not everyone can stay all hours all 3 days, but come for whatever time you can. Enjoy the energy and camaraderie of our sewing community.
Meals included: Friday supper, Saturday lunch and Sunday lunch and a casual smorgasbord on Saturday evening.
We are holding the retreat at the Niobrara Senior Center at 611 E. 6th Street, Lusk, Wyoming. We are able to start our retreat when the Senior Center is finished with their meals and activities for the day, at 3 p.m on Friday.
Irons and boards, and a cutting mat will be available to share. If you have a favorite, feel free to bring your own.
Supplies to bring: sewing machine, extension cord and surge protector, standard sewing supplies, your projects!
Friday evening, Feb 22, at 7 o'clock, we are planning a time for show-and-tell, demos, and games with prizes. Anyone from the community is welcome to join us for this fun hour at no charge.
If you need sleeping accommodations, there are 5 motels in Lusk. Please call for recommendations.
