Our First Retreat

From Thursday morning, May 7, to Sunday afternoon, May 10, 24 quilters from the Central Florida MQG and Gainesville MQG retreated at Luther Springs in Hawthorne, Florida. As you will see from these photos, we had a fabulous time!

Two businesses supported our retreat.

Make Modern magazine, a digital-only subscription magazine from Australia, donated three free copies for selected quilters, and offered discounts to retreaters. Thank you!

Soak supported our retreat by sending four bottles of Flatter for each of our ironing stations. As we pressed out those stubborn fabric folds, we enjoyed the scents - Yuzu, Celebration, and Fig - and one bottle of Scentless. Thank you!

Gainesville MQG member, Lora, brought fabric bolts from her DragonflyQuiltWorks Etsy shop, so we could admire and shop.
