MAY 19-22, 2011

In an effort to give former WQI members and other quilters an opportunity to come together to enjoy each other's company and spend some time quilting, we are offering a 2 1/2 day retreat at Covenant Harbor Retreat and Bible Camp

If you have not been to this facility before, please visit them at

Covenant Harbor is located on the shores of Geneva Lake in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.  The atmosphere here is tranquil.   There is a public path that follows the shoreline for it's entire 20 plus miles.  It is a great place to take a walk or just sit near the shore and meditate.  The sunsets can be breathtaking.

The food here is second to none.  The rooms are comfortable hotel style rooms with a private bath.

It's a great place to come before the summer gets into full swing and your projects take a back seat to your summer activities.

Please consider joining us.  We will have some pleasant surprises for you if you do.

For registration and pricing:


  1. Is there a way to either tone down the background or make the type brighter for those of us with older eyes? Since I love color I would favor making all type bold.

    I am looking forward to the retreat and am glad that this blog was set up so the WQI members can keep in touch.


  2. Kay,

    I will certain keep that in mind when I put up the next post. Thanks for your input. I need this to know how to make things better.

  3. Just fyi - I taught at the first retreat at this location in Lake Geneva, and it is a terrific place, food wonderful, great way to get away and quilt. Hope many of you can attend!

  4. Just a thought for the upcoming retreat. Since we won't have any teachers perhaps we could have a "theme". For instance, we could all make log cabin quilts in our own style. We'd all be able to do our own thing but have a common thread.

  5. Linda Muntean and I have done that before, Jan. We went to a retreat in Indiana a few times where most of the attendees worked from the same pattern. It was great fun to see the different colorways. There were some quilters who chose to work on a project of their own. It all worked really well.
