Retreat Report

By Jan Holland

Sharon and I are excited for the 2023 KPQG Retreat to be held February 17-19, 2023, at Lands’ End Resort in Homer! Remember to fill out the 2023 Registration Form found in this newsletter. The conference room will be available for retreat sewers to set up and sew as early as Wednesday February 15, 2023, at 1:00 pm. You must be a paid 2022-2023 member of the Kenai Peninsula Quilt Guild in order to register for and attend the retreat. Be sure to renew your membership in September 2022. Only registered attendees may set up or sew in the conference room during retreat.

Retreat packets will be available on October 1, 2022, at the end of the General Membership Meeting at Christ Lutheran Church in Soldotna. If you have completed your registration, paid your membership dues and are unable to attend the meeting a retreat packet will be mailed to you. Addresses for mailing are on the registration form and the membership form. At the October meeting registrations will be accepted. If more than 60 registrations are received, we would then have a lottery for the 60 seats putting everyone else on a waiting list. People on the waiting list have gotten into the retreat in the past; circumstances change where many times seats open up! The final date to register for retreat or request a refund is January 1, 2023. We will be drawing for one scholarship from the general membership at the October meeting. This covers retreat fees, t-shirt, and 2 nights at Lands’ End!!!!

Your October packet will include a schedule of events, fabric requirements for a fun mystery quilt, block information along with additional details for retreat!

Sharon Hale will be hosting a Buy-Sell-Trade table!!!

We are planning on having a full house with room for 60 of our members to attend retreat. The hotel block for quilters is open. If you are planning on attending, you can make your room reservations. If something comes up, you can cancel your reservation.

Call Lands’ End at 907-235-0400 or 1-800-478-0400 to make a reservation, and be sure to mention you will be attending the KPQG Retreat on February 17-19, 2023.

The cost for retreat remains at $150.00. $20.00 for t-shirts. At this time masks, vaccines and boosters will not be required.

The on-site vendor is Sheila Squires with Sew-n-Bee-Cozy in Seward. We are looking forward to shopping during the retreat!!
