    Huron Quilt Retreat - Are we repeating last years??

    Last fall we had a fabulous quilt retreat put on by Onalee with the help of her family and friends at a camp in Lexington Michigan...

    Wondering if anyone has heard about a repeat?? And can you pass the info along??

    She had posted that the camp was booked for November 9, 10, & 11. But since that, no more information.

    My neighbor went last year and had a blast. I wasn't sure how I'd do with my fibromyalgia and arthritis and she did say the beds weren't the most comfortable but were ok. I think I'd like to try it this year if she goes again.

    Vicki. Your neighbors and I did have so much fun... I'm hoping to repeat. They were working on the bed situation last year and likely made some upgrades.

    And - I know that I won't snore anyone out of the rooms this year - as I have started using a Bi-Pap machine. Very quiet.

    LOL - Kathy and Faye did have fun and I was sorry I didn't try last year. I used to snore until I had my nose fixed then had weightloss surgery and lost almost 100#. I no longer snore and no longer need my Cpap machine. I think my nose had more to do with the snoring than the weight. Apparently, I had a deviated septum since I was a kid and snored then and wasn't overweight (maybe even a little anorexic as a teen) so something to think about.

    The beds were campers bunk beds and did have regular mattress on them but if you brought a piece of foam or a sleeping bag to sleep on you might be more comfortable. We had such a blast last year, there are five of us in my group that are returning this year. I sure hope you can go. Also there is a Bed & Breakfast just down the road from the camp if that would be more comfortable for you. I have no idea what their prices are.
    Happy Quilting

    I am soooooo sew sorry, I missed this posting. Diane is correct. It is the weekend of the 16-18th this year. $135 includes food and lodging. I have had some requests about day use only and will see what I can come up with for those that would like that option. There is an issue with Sisters vendoring, though Deb said she would work something out. God Bless her, I really want this all to work. The camp changed the date and I didn't realize it until too late to fix it. I have moved from my home of 30 years and it has taken a toll on my both physically and mentally. But it is all good. I now live just a few miles down the road from the camp!! And I LOVE it!!! Please email me with any questions, problems, suggestions, etc. I will subscribe to this thread so will begin to get info when it is posted to. Onalee [email protected]
