    We get together with other quilters and sew ,
    Gossip, and eat for a few days. No family
    Members or household distractions.

    Sew, talk, sew, eat,sew,sleep. Sometimes they have a speaker to show you techniques. Trade patterns, get new ideas. Its a lot of fun.

    Welcome from Iowa! I like quilting retreats for the conversation and idea exchange. Quilters are nice people to hang around with.

    Welcome from LV. Retreats are great for socializing and having fun. Also, good food.

    I go to retreats twice a year in Carmel, we piece, we applique, we complain about our husbands, we quilt, we eat, we laugh a lot, we complain about our children, we talk about our dreams and then we quilt some more!

    Welcome from MA. Can't help you about a retreat, as I have never been on one, but I'm sure they would be a lot of fun.

    I've not yet been to a retreat..
    but from what I've heard from my DMIL, there's a lot of sewing, talking, laughing, and food. :)

    Welcome from S.E. Texas! :)

    First, welcome from St. Louis!
    I've been on one retreat and am going on another one in Oct. It was great! The guild I belong to has one every year. We meet at a resort. For three days we can sign up for different classes taught by guild members. They can last a half day or a whole day. We have a well known speaker who shows her quilts (last year she had over 100). She also designed for fabric co's and magazines. We have contests (make a quilted article of clothing and wear it to dinner). There's always a "challenge quilt" if you want to make one and bring it along. Last year it was "all polka dots and rail fence" design. Variety was amazing. We eat all our meals together, have show and tell one evening, shop venders set up in hotel rooms, meet new people, and just have alot of fun.The activities go on day and night. You can participate as much as you want. They also have a room where you can go and just sew. At the end everyone shows what they made in the classes they took.
    If you get a chance to go to one, by all means, don't miss it!

    By the way, my avitar is the quilt I made last year (all polka dots and rail fence), hand quilted, and I got 3rd. place!
