Hello, dear quilting friends, Due to circumstances beyond our control we are not meeting this fall for retreat as we are accustomed… However, we have something new to offer in the same time slot as the retreat booking.
You are invited to join us at: WHERE WOMEN GATHER; a 3-day quilt retreat. The date is November 12, 13, 14/2020. The retreat has 2 parts- (1) 3 days of quilting and (2) 3 evenings of ZOOM fireside from 7-8:30 pm when Beth will tell her stories and where we get to share pictures of our projects.
In the evening by the fireside room, Beth will tell the stories of 3 women from very different backgrounds who ended up being in the Line of Jesus: Rahab (from a very sketchy past), Bathsheba (who started well and got into big trouble), and Mary (just all round a great person). God can take any of us and do great things in our lives, not because of what we bring to the table, but because He loves and cares for us and has great plans for us.
The Gathering place and time for our quilting is from 10 am to 5 pm each day at the location: The Millarville Community Church (which is Beth and Jan’s church) just off Highway 549 East (306 Avenue) 1 KM east of highway 22. Coffee, tea and disposable cups will be provided. You need to bring your own lunch and snacks, your own sewing project and all the equipment for you to do your task: your sewing machine, extension cords act.
REGISTRATION is limited to 20 quilters at the church for proper distancing between individual work stations. The cost of the in-person retreat is $20 to cover costs. Payment can be made as you arrive on the retreat day. However, there is no cost to join the Zoom meetings each night. All are welcome to join the Fireside Chats in the evening, but you do need to register to receive the zoom link. Both the day retreat and the zoom gathering require that you pre-register before November 6/20 – there are 20 in-person spots available. All who register will be sent a zoom link and a password that you need to have in order to be part of the evening gathering. To register: please contact Beth Schmidt firstname.lastname@example.org Please send your SHOW and TELL pictures to Jan Burney email@example.com each afternoon before 4 and we can share our progress with the others. We hope this invitation finds you and yours well and we invite you to consider joining in on this gathering with us.
With love to you, Barb, Beth, and Jan
