Quilt With Us

SOYO Retreat

January 18-21, 2024

Courtyard by Marriott, 580 Watiki Way, Box Elder

January's chilly weather invites us to settle in and accomplish great new (and old) quilts at our annual winter SOYO (sew-on-your-own) Retreat. It is always fun to see what all of us are up to. Gather your pins, rulers, scissors, fabric and machine and join us for a weekend of fun.

We will again have our SOYO at the Courtyard by Marriott. Take Elk Vale Road to South I-90 Service Road and go east. Turn right on Watiki Way.
