Camp Trillium Retreat 2019

We are having a retreat at Camp Trillium, Rainbow Lake from Friday, November 1, 2019 until Sunday, November 3. Camp Trillium is a lovely facility and it seems to be tailor-made for quilting retreats. The big photo below is our sewing room and all 50 quilters will have their own table with drop down from the ceiling power cords! There will always be coffee and tea available in the dining room and there are multiple seating areas for some hand sewing with your new friends.

We will be sleeping in cabins but no one is expected to sleep on the top bunks! The cabins are fully heated and there are full bathrooms and powder rooms in each cabin. We will need to bring our own bedding and towels.


The retreat will start Friday after lunch and will go until Sunday afternoon. Almost 3 full days and night to sew! And learn! And have fun! There is room for 50 sewers to each have their own table, with drop-down power cords coming from the ceiling.

The meals are all cooked on site from scratch and include 3 meals and snacks each day. They can cater to most food allergies and intolerances. We will publish the menu before the retreat and you are welcome to bring your own food if menu items don’t suit you. You can bring your own snacks except absolutely no peanuts!

$200  Balance due at the September meeting. For insurance purposes, the retreat is only open to guild members. But non-members just pay $35 for a membership and they get to come to all our meetings next year! Several members are bringing their sisters!

It will be too cold for swimming in the pond but we can hike around the property, scout for the beavers and have a campfire if the weather is suitable.

The retreat planning committee members are Vicki M, Patti M, Donna P, Terry A, Jill J and Stephanie S. Please contact them if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions.
