SOYO Retreat

SOYO Retreat - January 18-20, 2019 at the Comfort Suites/Elk Vale Road

January's chilly weather invites us to settle in and accomplish great new (and old) quilts at our annual winter SOYO (sew-on-your-own) Retreat. It is always fun to see what all of us are up to. Gather your pins, rulers, scissors, fabric and machine and join us for a weekend of fun.

The SOYO begins at noon on Friday, January 18 - DO NOT arrive early. It will end at 2:00 pm on Sunday, January 20th.
