Retreat News


Our May retreat is just days away and I am happy to say it is full.


The dates for our September Retreat are Thursday through Sunday, September 21-24. You may decide to come Friday through Sunday if that fits your schedule better. There are still a few openings for this retreat but don’t delay. Sign up soon!

The January 2018 dates are now confirmed and I am ready to take your reservation. The dates are Monday thru Thursday, January 22-25. There are still lots of openings so grab a friend and join us for a fun week!

These retreats are booked a year in advance and even though it may seem like a long way off, if you think you'd like to go but just can't confirm right now, ask to be put on the Waiting List. There's no charge for that. Sign-ups require a $50 deposit and you are always welcome to make payments if that helps with budgeting for it.

All of our overnight retreats are held at the Vina de Lestonnac Retreat Center in the beautiful wine country area of Temecula. The accommodations are clean and comfort-able, the food is great, and the fun and friendships made are unforgettable! Please contact me if you have any questions. I'd love to have you join us!

Presidents Message - April, 2017



Our Quilt Show is almost here and we have a lot of things we will need help with to make this show as wonderful as always, so be sure to do your part and volunteer to help out.

Again we have many things going on over the next few months, so be sure to check out your newsletter to see what speakers, workshops and events we have going on.

Also in the newsletter is a list of chair positions within the Guild—if you see something that strikes your fancy, let me know.

Charity Quilts

We have met our 2016-2017 goal!

Let’s try now to get a head start on next year’s goal!

As a reminder: All charity quilts need to be at least 48”x60”, finished and not more that a cou-ple inches over. Backings need to be assembled and 6-8” over in size both in width and length before turning into your long-armers.
