NEW! Black Swamp Quilt Retreat 2017 : "Paws for Quilting"


October 19 - 22, 2017 

The retreat is now full and anyone wishing to attend will be put on a waiting list. More information will be emailed in September and October regarding start times, donations, etc. Make sure you have room reservations made and that you are with Black Swamp Quilters. We have 30 rooms reserved and dedicated to our group for that weekend. 


Door prizes and table favors can be collected now or you can bring them to the retreat, just be sure to remember to bring them!!!! Just get those to one of the committee members either at a meeting or at the retreat. 


This year, the committee asks for a donation to a Sandusky county pet re-homing facility, Another Chance Sanctuary. Local vet, Laura Hirt, heads up the operation to give abandoned pets a new home full of love. A list of needed items will be posted closer to retreat time, by the end of the summer. Dr. Hirt and her staff will be picking these items up at Quality Inn during the retreat. 


The Facebook page, Black Swamp Quilters retreat 2017 Paws for Quilting, is up and running. To be included on this page, you must belong to Facebook and click the request to join button on the PAWS page, if you are not already part of the group. This is a closed group so your request must be approved. Only members of the retreat and guild members are to be part of this page. 


The committee is so excited to be working on another fun year for the guild retreat. We can't wait to see you "Paws" for quilting!

P.S. A message from the committee chair re typos in the registration forms:

"The correct price is $70 deposit for members, as stated at the meeting. Please, if your form has $75 in the title block of information, disregard. The correct amount should be $70 for members. I apologize for any inconvenience or confusion.
"Also, we are donating to Another Chance Sanctuary (NOT Sancuary) in Sandusky County. "



The retreat organizers wish to thank all those donors who made the 2016 retreat a success.
