Siena Spring Retreat

Think Spring Break for You!!! The spring retreat is a perfect time for you to take time for yourself at the Siena Center in Racine, WI. Things should be greening up outside and the ice should be off the lake so the shoreline should be ripe for lake glass picking. Keep your quilting momentum going as you work on your quilts for the 2018 quilt show and enjoy 4 days with your fellow quilters.

Dates are Monday, April 23th – Thursday, April 26th, 2018. Sign up will begin at the January 18th meeting with a deposit of $50. Total cost will be $272 and I have room for 25 people. If you have any questions call Kathy Mueller, 815436-3883 or my cell 815-953-6601,

2018 Cedar Lake Quilting Retreat

This summer, we will be having our 4th quilting retreat at Cedar Lake Ministries, in Cedar Lake, IN.  The dates are from July 22 – July 26, 2018.  You may arrive either Sunday, July 22, or Monday, July 23.  It is about 1 hour 10 minutes away from Shorewood/Joliet.

We will be quilting in the lower level of The Oaks, which is also our dining hall.  Our sewing rooms overlook the beautiful shore of Cedar Lake.  Meals will be served Sunday (or Monday) evening, depending on arrival, through Thursday breakfast.

We have a number of different housing options with a variety of price points for you to consider.

You will also have some optional activities to choose from, such as S’Mores at the fire-pit, a pontoon boat ride, and kayaking at the beach, to name a few.  The area is restful and has some lovely areas to walk.

The website for the ministry center is:  There, you can see some of the housing options, grounds, beach area, etc.  Because this is a ministry center, no alcohol is permitted.

Please email me at for any additional information.

Won’t you join the fun?
