SOYO Retreat

January 14-17, 2021

Comfort Suites/Elk Vale Road, 1333 North Elk Vale Road, Rapid City

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 11:00 am on Thursday, January 14 - DO NOT arrive early. It will end at noon on Sunday, January 17th. The registration fee is $35 for members and $45 for non-members. Meals are available for an additional cost.

Due to COVID-19, the maximum number of attendees has been reduced to 50.
