Announcing: The 2015 SMQG Retreat!

It's time to sign up for the April 24-26 SMQG retreat in Kennebunk, Maine!

We are pleased to be holding our retreat at the Franciscan Guest House. It is a reasonably-priced, centrally-located option that hosts many quilt retreats. They provide a lovely, well-lit space for sewing and will provide all irons, ironing boards, and design walls, as well as coffee and hot water for tea throughout the day. There will also be a refrigerator to store sodas and other beverages.

The Franciscan is a short walk from downtown Kennebunk. You'll be able to walk downtown for meals, snacks, drinks, and breaks.

Continental-style breakfasts are included in the price of the room, and lunch on Saturday will be a catered deli lunch (think salads, sandwiches, cookies), price included in the totals below.

We were so lucky to be able to tag along at the Boston MQG's retreat in March 2014--if you weren't there, and would like to see what kinds of fun takes place, you can look at Alice's writeup of the retreat here.

Pricing for the retreat is as follows:
Single Room, 3 nights (Thursday 23rd, Friday 24th, Saturday 25th): $324
Double Room, 3 nights: $224 per person
Single Room, 2 nights: $229
Double Room, 2 nights: $163 per person

There is a "commuter" option in the drop-down below. I was able to offer a very limited number of these spots to those who specially requested them, but needed to limit the spots to three people. If you are interested in a commuter spot, I am running a waitlist. Please email Laura.

To reserve your place at the retreat, please select your room option from the dropdown below. You will have one week--until Thursday, November 20--to reserve your spot! The $30 deposit will be deducted from the balance of your choice above.

You can then pay your balance in two payments, if you choose, or one, if you choose. For planning purposes, the second payment will be due around January 10; the final payment, by March 1.

Please email Laura if you have questions or need clarification. Laura also needs to know ASAP if you will need a ground-floor/handicap accessible room.
