Bentonsport Iowa Quilt retreat
Where: The Mason House B&B in Bentonsport Ia.
When: Friday Sept 24 to Sunday Sept 26
Limit: 12 quilters
Bring your own projects to work on if you like.
I am going to do some demonstrations. If there is anything you might like me to address just let me know.
are the responsibility of each quilter.
The B&B has 9 rooms available but if you know you are coming the earlier you can reserve a room the better. I can't reserve them ahead cause I would have to pay for all the rooms and can't do that.
There are also a couple of motels within 6 miles of Bentonsport. The prices at Hotel Manning are a bit less than the B&B if that is an option you might want.
The B&B will provide a sandwich lunch or I can provide lunch.
There are restaurants in the area if we want to go that way for suppers. This would be a group decision.
You are welcome to bring any food you would like if you want snacks or drinks etc. I will provide some soft drinks and bottled water.
My favorite quilt shop is 16 miles from Bentonsport and I would like to take everyone there. It is not like the usual quilt shop. It is a mennonite store at Cantril Iowa. They sell groceries / household items/toys/shoes/and quilting supplies. The fabrics they sell are ones I haven't seen in the other quilt shops. But the quality is good.
Here are links for the Mason House and Hotel Manning so you can see what they have to offer for accomodations.
Internet service is available at the B&B not sure about the Hotel.
