February 2017 Quilt Retreat

Click on pictures to enlarge.

Our First Annual Calico Cutups Quilt Guild is in the books. Twenty-four women and one VERY patient and tolerant man spent 3 1/2 days sewing, eating, laughing and getting to know one another better. Big THANK YOUS go to Kevin at the Ozark Camp and Retreat Center for providing a perfect location and environment conducive to creating, to Carrie, Connie and Lila for trying to kill us with copious amounts of delicious food, to Robbi and Maryann for making all the arrangements for our comfort and to the Good Lord for providing us with good weather and safe travels for everyone. A good time was had by all. Can’t wait ’til next year!  We have an awesome quilt guild! Sharon Moravits.
