Woodside Quilting Retreats

Who doesn't enjoy 3 days of sewing with some of your best quilting friends! It's the most fun you'll have all year! We have many retreats a year. We are very excited to be able to host our Retreats in our Retreat Center. We have a large room in the back that is just perfect for retreats.

Retreat “rules” for retreaters
You can bring in packaged food for snacks, but no crock pots or sharing of food etc. Hours are Thu. 9:30 - 5:30, Fri. 9:30 – 5, Sat. 9:30 – 4 The cost is $50.00 with the normal 15% discount. 
Before and after the retreat we will wipe down the tables chairs and sanitize. Retreaters can setup on Thursday at 9:30 AM but cannot come early on Wed. Sorry but we need Wednesday to clean and setup the room.
You can also now sign up and pay for retreats online. Go to the class section and sign up as though you are signing up for class. If the retreat is full you can sign up without paying and be put on the waiting list in "First Come" order.
