Retreat: Quilting in the Rockies (entry 60)

Hi all, so I have some very exciting news to share with you...PastimesOnline is having a retreat!! 

Nestled in the Rockies in Radium, British Columbia only 2.5 hours from Calgary a private retreat location awaits, cooking looked after, prizes will be FAB, company will be excellent...

Country breakfast & lunch & catered in a la carte supper
arrive on Thursday afternoon 3pm (for you early travellers)
Friday full day of sewing and visiting
Saturday full day of sewing and visiting
Sunday Brunch, sewing and depart at 1pm

For those of you who are interested a customized lesson/class from Calgary Quilter/Designer Ana Buzzalino maybe offered. Specifics for the class to be determined but think along the lines of introduction to fabric painting and quilting or machine quilting tips and techniques.

The dates available will be:

Option A: Thursday April 22 - 25, 2010

Option B: Thursday June 24 - 27, 2010

Option C: Thursday Sept 23 - 26, 2010

Approx cost for the weekend inclusive will be $200 plus taxes. This will include meals Friday, Sat, Sunday Brunch. If you want to take the class with Ana (to be determined) this will be based on interest and you will be contacted directly for additional costs.

I'm blogging to see about interest in either of the 3 dates above. The space is limited, approx 8 people maximum. So if you & a friend are interested please contact me with the preferred option and I will add you to the sign up sheet.

Radium is in the perfect setting for relaxation, known mostly for their Hot Springs so if you would like to take some time to indulge and spend the day relaxing you will be in the right place.

(located right beside Invermere, British Columbia)

 I look forward to hearing from you...more pics to come showing the inside of the retreat location...
