    How many people here would be interested in going to a retreat?

    I found a place near Kansas City that could accomodate a pretty good size group. I would have to check into cost of course but from their web site I think it would run around $90. or less per person, per night.

    I think those interested would have to have the discussion of when. October in Kansas tends to be really nice weather though.

    I would love to go. Not sure it would be feasible though, as I would have to pay airfare and probably wouldn't be able to bring my machine. I hope a bunch of you can get together and do a retreat; they are so much fun!

    October is 10 months away which should be plenty of time to plan time off and save money to pay for it. Before it could happen there would have to be definite commitments. I'm sure deposits would have to be made to hold whatever weekend was chosen.

    October is a perfect time of the year for a retreat!
    But since it IS 10 months away, lots of things can change in our lives. Ya know?
    Are you gonna organize this? If so, just keep us informed on the things we need to know. Timing & price are probably the most important items.
    This is exciting!!

    Are all of you replying going to be able to drive to Kansas City? Just curious if anyone would have to fly in.

    I'm driving. It's about 10 to 12 hours for me. No way I'd fly! Not after the terrorist thing in Dec, plus the stuff you have to go through at the airport.
    anyone on my way from south MS? I could pick you up if you'd like.

    Sounds like a lot of fun--but I am going to the Houston quilt show in November and a girl has to draw a line on quilting fun somewhere. Doesn't she???

    I would love to go on a retreat sometime, but I think Kansas is a little to far for me, but if anyone else every does one someplace closer I would love to go!

    Our quilt guild holds a retreat twice a year at local church camp that has a big lodge with rooms on each end of it and also cabins within walking distance. Huge room with tables for sewing and large kitchen for cooking and preparing meals. We go for 3 days in spring and again in fall. We all chip in and help with meals. There is usually 30-40 of us that go each time and we only have to help prepare and bring food for one meal in that 3 day period. It is very modern place and only costs us about $45 for the whole 3 days. Ours is owned and operated by the Methodist Ministry. Check some local church camps out and you can probably find a place cheaper. As I go already instate 3 times a year can't get off work for much else except family trips. But sounds like fun.

    I don't go to retreats to cook and wash dishes. Most of the church camps I have found don't hold that many.

    The church camp I did find will sleep 175 and they'll feed you twice a day. Plus they have a massive room that can be used for a sewing room.

    Maybe you can put together a retreat for members of this group in your area.

    I am just 2.5 hours from Kansas City. A retreat would be fun. Would we want to do a long weekend or what?
