MMQG retreat

Last weekend was the first MMQG retreat. It was held at Camp Wapo in Amery, WI.


At the retreat, it's just like going to camp, except you can sew and sew all day (and even into the night).  Meals were included so we just showed up at the dining hall at breakfast, lunch and dinner and the rest of the time we were sewing in this beautiful space.


There was room enough for several quilts to be laid out on our "design floors" making it fun to get up and walk around every few hours to see what was laid out.



Fresh Stash Fabrics, one of our guild sponsors, brought along some fabric bundles, fat quarters and a few other things for sale - just in case you needed more fabric.



Not letting anything go to waste on the retreat, all of our fabric scraps were collected to make a little dog bed.


Of course I think one of the best parts was the door prizes!  There were fabulous donations from Moda, Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman, Aurifil, Andover Fabrics, Newcastle Fabrics, Fresh Stash Fabrics, Mini Mushrooms, Crafty Planet, Sewtropolis, Glad Creations and Quilt Sticks.





At the end of the fun weekend, we had a little show-and-tell of what we made there (or worked on).
