Spring Retreat 2023 was May 5-7
"Spring retreat was amazing! 39 retreaters had a great time visiting, sewing, doing a quick 4 seams for an ABC charity quilt, opening door prizes and sharing meals. We filled the room with laughter and there were a few group ‘therapy’ sessions.
I am so thankful for the help from the committee which included: Jean Ruger, Melanie Eber, Glenda Brown, Daisy Sedalnick, Maryann Ray, and of course Pam Ballard for her ability to get door prizes donated. A special shout out to Lee Hutsler who brought a bundle of door prizes and also a bunch of fabrics to give away. Polka dots anyone? In addition, I would like to thank everyone that helped with set up and take down.
The sharing of ideas, encouragement and, of course, fabrics is always appreciated and shows a generosity of spirit in our CQC community."

Fall Retreat 2023 was October 13-15
Everyone had a great time getting to know new members and rekindling friendships from past retreats.
There were so many quilters who helped in making our Fall Retreat a success that it is difficult to recognize everyone. A huge “Thank You” to Mary Rush who assisted in selecting this year’s venue, and to Karen Truesdell who picked up Ruth Ann at DIA and brought her to the hotel. An additional “Thank You” to Jolie Maes, Sue Comeau, Dawn Mills, and Laural Hoppes for helping set up the sewing room and welcoming our retreaters. Much appreciation goes to our quilters who made the table favors- Laural Hoppes, Heather Lundquist, Maryann Ray, Mary Rush, Daisy Sedalnick, and Pat Smith.
We hope to see everyone join us in October 2024 for our next Fall Retreat. Happy Quilting y’all!
