La Plata Quilt Guild Retreat
Vallecito Resort
September 20 – 22, 2019

This retreat is hosted by the La Plata Quilt Guild.  They have some open spots for their retreat in September.  Below is a link to the registration form for the 2019 Retreat at Vallecito Resort in Bayfield.  To check out the location and cabins, please go to their website:  Cabins 2, 5 and Ponderosa are already taken.  You may need to share a cabin.  You will have a private room.    We have use of the main hall and kitchen as well as the cabins.  If you haven’t played with us before, come play.   All skill levels are welcome and there is no “program”.  Bring one of those projects that keep getting put aside or something new that you aren’t quite sure how to start or anything you want to work on.

There are a few steps into the cabins and hall but no serious staircases so everyone should be comfortable getting around.  The cost is $130.00 per person and the dates are Friday Sept 20 – Monday, Sept 23.  Yup – three nights this year ☺  More sewing time is always a good thing.

I need to have a final head count by August 1st.   If you have any questions please contact me at or by phone at 970-769-4994.
