Retreat Evening Program Changes - Quilting in the Hills 2018 - September 27-30

Sylvia Pippen has cancelled for the retreat due to a death in the family.  There are several changes to the schedule due to her cancellation.  Janna Thomas's lecture has been moved to Friday evening, and there is no lecture Thursday evening.

Anne Meismer has offered to teach a Jelly Roll Mat class Thursday afternoon/evening in place of the Thursday lecture.  Anne is doing this at no charge to the guild, so we are offering it as we offered the other evening programs (if you are taking a workshop or SOYO there is no fee, if not there is a $5 fee.)  A supply list will be available at the Tuesday morning gathering, or we can email you a list.

Registration will now start at 2 pm Thursday.  The Jelly Roll classroom will open at 3 pm, and class will start at 3:30 pm.  Dinner will be from 6 - 7 pm, and class will resume at 7 pm, ending at 8:30 pm.

Registration for the Jelly Roll class is not available through the website, but you can register by contacting us through the guild website ("About Us, "Contact Us") or at the Tuesday morning gatherings.  If you would like to attend the class and need to register for Thursday's dinner, please let us know that also.

If you are planning to stay at Terra Sancta and have not made reservations yet, please do so now so they can plan accordingly.  The information for reservations at Terra Sancta is listed below.
