We're putting on a Great Escape retreat to help you find a bit of sanity in the middle of winter. We're holding it the same weekend as the WCOQG would have held their now cancelled retreat. We understand that many people may be disappointed that the Guild retreat has (understandably) been cancelled and we're stepping up to hold a placeholder retreat. It will be limited to only 50 people (as we assume that social distancing will still be a thing we need to observe) and will be over a slightly shorter time. You do not need to be a Guild member to attend our retreat.

We'll be at the Howard Johnson Hotel's ballroom. Each person will have their own 8' table to spread out and relax over the weekend. Move in time will start at 12 noon on Friday, January 15th. We'll have a welcome reception with appetizers starting at 7. 

The ballroom will be open until midnight Friday and Saturday and will reopen at 6 am (Saturday and Sunday) for those of you for whom sleep isn't a necessity. As of right now (Early September 2020) the hotel is offering an abbreviated sort of breakfast. We're not sure exactly what breakfast will look like in January, but we assume that they will have something. Lunch will be provided on Saturday and Sunday. You'll be on your own for dinner, but there are lots of local places and you can certainly form your own group to do as you please. 

We're planning several fun activities and lots of time for sewing on your own projects. We may have a couple of demonstrations, but no classes. Each Registrant will get a goodie bag full of fun things! We're still coming up with all sorts of fun things to do, so this list may get longer yet. 

You must call or stop out at the shop to sign up! 419-979-0218

We need to gather information and other things and can do so more effectively if we talk to you rather than rely upon the computer to do it for us. 

Earlybird signup will be available through September 19th. Earlybird cost is $99. Retreat cost will be $129 for all registrants after September 19th.
