Cedar Lake Retreat 2019
Summer is around the Corner…
Our Cedar Lake quilting retreat will be held this year on Sunday, July 7 – Thursday, July 11, 2019.  It is a wonderful time of relaxation, strengthening friendships, making new ones and working on some projects. Maybe you’ll be one of the lucky ones who goes home with a finished project or two!  Cedar Lake, Indiana, is just over the IL/IN border about 1-1 ¼ hours from Shorewood. It is about the same from Naperville. Our retreat is held at Cedar Lake Ministries, on the beautiful shores of Cedar Lake. You can find additional information off  their website, which is  You can see housing options as well as the grounds and activities they offer.  For those who haven’t been to the Cedar Lake retreat, most of us arrive Sunday, while a few come on Monday. One of the weeknights, we’ll have a pontoon boat ride with a stop at the local ice cream shop. On a different evening, we’ll make baked pies and s’mores over a firepit.  Both of these activities are optional.  We will have the information and prices at our next guild meeting but we won’t begin collecting deposits until the February meeting. If you’d like to see the prices and housing options prior to then, please email me (Carol O’Dell) at and I would be happy to email them to you.  Please note, for those from IN or the IN/IL border, we have a new option for those who’d like to sew but not spend the night. We have those prices available on the price information sheets.  If you have attended one or more in the past years, thank you for making this a part of your
summer. If you haven’t yet had an opportunity, won’t you consider it for this year? We’d love to have you!!
