Superior Threads is generously donating some gift certificates as door prizes for our retreat! Thank you so much!
Didn't make it to QuiltCon this week?
Missed all the modern quilting excitement? Feel left out? Exhausted from stalking the #quiltconwest hashtag?
Well don't worry, as we think the SWO MOD Retreat will be the next best quilting event besides QuiltCon! Much like QuiltCon there will be amazing quilty friends, great food, wine and swag bags!
You can still register up until March 31st and we have a few spots available.
And in your free time this week, have a look at the MQG blog post with all the winning quilts- you will even see one made by Rebecca a SWO MOD organizer!

Who doesn't love chocolate? And for those who don't- you can gladly give me yours!
One of our retreat guests Nancy has supplied chocolate for all the gift bags! Thank you Nancy! And it's dark chocolate so really it is considered healthy, and if it's healthy, I am sure that means calorie free! RIGHT?
I love making tote bags! Knit Stitch generously donated this Stowe Bag pattern for a door prize at the retreat! There are two sizes in the pattern, the small bag uses 7/8 of a yard and the large bag uses 2 1/4 yards- so maybe pack a bit of extra fabric in case you are the lucky winner and want to sew up this bag right away! Thanks Suzanne for this awesome prize!
There are still 4 spots remaining! Register now by clicking here.
What could be better than shopping at a local quilt shop during retreat weekend?
Stitch-it Central is just a 5 minute drive from the Elm Hurst in downtown Ingersoll. They offer quilting fabrics and notions as well as cross stitch supplies.
Bring your guild membership card as they are offering guild members a 15% discount.
And Stitch-it Central is also sponsoring a door prize for our retreat! Thanks so much Stitch-it Central!
Here is a link to their website for more about their shop. Stitch-It Central
Look at these awesome thread catchers that Heather made for all the retreat guests! Every fabric is different and they are all lined with plastic so that when you empty your threads into the garbage, they don't stick- isn't this genius?
Thanks again Heather!
