Retreat Info


Our retreat at Wise Guys is just around the corner.  Woohoo!  We are going to make it easy and include all of the information for the retreat on this page!

Here is the information for the quilt.  It is so fun and easy!   Kay almost has the binding sewn down so we will send a picture of it completed soon!  Beside the Kansas Trouble colorway, we are also cutting layer cakes in batik colors if you are interested.The name of this beauty is--NIGHT And DAY--                     You Will Need:
1 layer cake of dark 10" squares
1 layer cake of light 10" squares OR 3 1/4 yds of light fabric (cut into (42) 10" squares
First Border---3/4 yd; cut 2 1/2" strips

  Just a reminder for the hours.  We will sew from 9 AM – 12 midnight on Friday, April 6 and then we will sew from 9 AM – 8 PM on Saturday, April 7th.  The beauty of Wise Guys is it is all on one level.  Just pull under the canopy to unload.  Remember, we will have your seats reserved so there is no worry about getting there before 9 AM to save a seat.  Here is a list of supplies:
