Formerly Around the Block Quilt Shop

FALL RETREAT SEPTEMBER 6th-10th



Please know that this retreat is for ALL of our customers. Although the majority of us that attend are quilters, some choose to Cross Stitch, Knit, Read, Draw, ect. It’s always fun to admire another skill/talent. At this years Spring Retreat, one of our newbies introduced me to Diamond Painting! I had never heard or seen it before. I thought it would be perfect for my daughter, and I was online ordering it a few hours later! It’s so much fun to see what others create, even if it’s not necessarily the hobby for you! The Kettunen Center is very large and we can accommodate a very large group, so tell your friends!

Last year we made Pillow Cases for the Hurricane victims. I, along with many of my customers, donated fabric for this cause. This year, I am donating fabric once again so that we can make kid friendly surgical caps for the Pediatric Units in need. These whip up super fast and we sure would appreciate you grabbing one or two to make while at retreat. We will have the supplies ready for you when you check in.

Not only will we have a mini shop set up for both quilting and cross stitch, but we will also be starting a Mystery Quilt! How the Mystery Quilt works is you will sign up PRIOR to retreat so that you can pick up your fabric requirements. Once at retreat, you will receive your first clue. Upon completion, you will receive your next clue, and so on, and so forth. You will have no idea what your final quilt will look like until the very last clue! Hence the “Mystery”! Make sure you tell us if you plan on participating, before the retreat so that we may have enough clues for everyone!

Cost is PER PERSON and includes Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner! The food is wonderful! You will not be disappointed!
