On Saturday there will also be a Blind Fat Quarter Swap. Each attendee brings as many fat quarters (18” x 22”) as they like, up to 10. For each one a person contributes, they get to select one fat quarter from the swap.

Retreat Meals

On Friday evening, we will have pizza and salad. Please bring $5 to cover the cost of the pizza.

On Saturday, food will be supplied via potluck. We still have quite a few openings for food for the retreat.
