Our guild participates in quilting retreats during which we enjoy one another’s company and time set aside to sew (and of course visit fabric stores because who doesn’t need more fabric?)

We have held spring retreats at the Ponderosa Retreat in Waynesville in the beautiful North Carolina mountains. An extra day is often planned to allow time to actually sew as there are plenty of fabric and quilting stores along the way and within driving distance of Ponderosa.

A new venue we discovered in 2021 is The Retreat at Lake Gaston.  This is a gorgeous but cozy site (located just over the NC/VA border), with parking limited to 12 cars.

In fall of both 2020 and 2021, we relaxed at the spacious Camp Walter Johnson near Denton, NC.  This camp is owned by the Salvation Army, but it feels like we have the whole place to ourselves at this time of year.

In 2018 and 2019, we enjoyed fall retreats at the Haw River State Park.
