    Is Quilt Camp the same as a retreat?

    It sounds like it. The only difference I can see is sometimes at a retreat you stay wherever you want, and at a camp you probably all stay together.

    Sounds like it would be the same to me... maybe it is in a country/wooded setting? :D:D:D

    Thank you for your reply. One of the ladies at the Lexington Quilt Show Saturday mentioned the quilt camp and not sure what she meant but.....the crowd was thick and I moved on.

    Blessings,

    another gal on the board mentioned that they had a quilt camp where you brought your own food for meals during the day and went home to sleep at nite...so I guess a quilt camp can be anything you want...just like a retreat.

    You would have to read the schedule. But in general, I would say yes.

    My quilt group go away every year and hire a cottage in the country---very remote and we take our machines,our food ---and wine of course. We have a lovely time,sewing,walking or whatever anyone wants to do.


    This is our outlook

    They sounds the same to me, but I would get more info.

    What a lovely group and jolly. I love that word, we don't use it enough here in the states. If you told someone they were jolly they'd think we called them Santa Claus. You lovely ladies do not resemble Santa, for sure. Thanks for sharing.

    Blessings,
    Ruth

    Ruth you are right we are jolly---and I would say some of us are fat enough to be Santa claus---ho,ho,ho

    We do have a good time and the farmer who owns the cottage often pops in to see us and have a drink and peice of cake.

    me too! That outlook is so peaceful. I am sure you have a wonderful time there. Someday I hope to have a place in NM where quilting friends can come to quilt too. This past spring a friend from Sweden came for a couple of weeks and we quilted together. I felt kind of bad that we didn't do touristy things, but we did have a great time. Hopefully I can spend time with her in Sweden this coming summer and we can quilt and craft together there.
    Love England. Especially London and Bath!
