OVERVIEW

Are you ready for some quilting fun? Yes? Then sign up today for this fun retreat!  Please note that you can plan to stay until Monday!

Start your day off right when you wake up to this most cheerful quilt! To make Daybreak (designed by Georgette Dell’Orco ) you start off with a bundle of 2 ½” strips, and then add some background fabric(s) and an accent fabric. Then by following a simple stitch and fold technique, before long you’ll be ready to display this beautiful quilt.

Reminder: you need to bring your own bedding and towels.  These are not furnished by the camp.

Registration is at 4:00 on Friday (please plan to arrive not more than 30 minutes early)   I prefer not to start until all participants have arrived.  However if you know you will be late, please let me know and we will help you catch up when you arrive.

If you’re coming with a friend, when you register you need to specify who it is you want to room with.

As always registration & payment is through Penn-York Camp  pennyork.com (you can find us under events) or call 814-848-9811 Any questions concerning the quilt, contact me at 814-274-7691, e-mail quiltersheaven2@zitomedia.net or Facebook at Penn York Camp Quilters Retreat.

Looking forward to a great time together!

This quilt looks great if your accent fabric and your first border are the same fabric.

Also bring:

Your sewing machine, rotary equipment, and all your other wonderful quilting gadgets

A flannel backed tablecloth to be used as a design wall

An ironing station for yourself or to share with friends (I encourage you to share because too many irons plugged in at once causes circuit breaker problems)

Extension cord and/or power strip.

 

COVID Restrictions:

We will follow a similar format to last years fall retreat. Ladies are welcome to wear a mask if they prefer, but will not be required to while sitting at their tables. Masks are suggested while moving around, communicating with other members in attendance. Masks will need to be worn while going through the food line.
