Quilting in the Hills 2020

Save the Date: October 8-11, 2020
at Terra Santa Retreat Center

Cynthia England and Margaret Brewster Willingham are this year's retreat instructors. Each will have a workshop on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. SOYO is available all three days.

Registration is currently limited to 15 attendees per workshop and 18 attendees per day for SOYO so that each attendee can have their own 6-foot table. Due to limited workshop size, we ask that you register for only two of the three days at this time (workshops and SOYO  combined). There is a wait list section of the registration form where you can request your third day option. Any workshops not filled by August 25 will be filled from the wait list and you will be notified if your third day is available.

Registration is open to members only until September 1 and is on a first come basis. Your membership dues must be paid at the time of registration or your name will not be added to your requested workshop.

 Workshops and Evening Programs

Due to the situation at the time of planning, the Retreat Committee is waiting to see if there are any changes anticipated for October. Afternoon/evening workshops have been added on Thursday. We are considering several options for Friday and Saturday evening that would allow for the current restrictions. Registration for meals will be available later when we have a better idea of what the set up will be.  

 Full class descriptions and bios on the instructors are available in the brochure.
