We are excited for the 2024 KPQG Retreat!! It will be held February 16-18, 2024, at Land’s End Resort in Homer! To attend complete the 2024 Registration Form found in this newsletter. The conference room will be available for retreat sewers to set up and sew on Wednesday, February 14, 2024, at 1:00 pm. You must be a paid 2023 - 2024 member of the Kenai Peninsula Quilting Guild in order to register for and attend the retreat. Be sure to renew your membership! Only registered attendees may set up or sew in the conference room during the retreat.
Retreat packets will be available on October 7, 2023, 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! The final date to register for retreat or request a refund is January 1, 2024. 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 Land’s 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 the retreat. The hotel block for quilters is open. If you are planning on attending you can make room reservations. If something comes up, you can cancel your reservation.
Call Land’s 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 16-18, 2024.
The cost of the retreat remains at $150.00.
Lands End has been remodeling - the good news is the remodel will not affect the conference room for our sewing! The bad news is the Harbor Room downstairs will not be available for a vendor; therefore, we are unable to have a vendor this year. We hope that in the future a room will be available!
