Our first Guild retreat since January, 2020 was held at Spruceholme Inn in Fort Coulonge, Quebec from February 14 to 17. We were a small group with nine Guild members and two guests. A number of us worked on our Block of the Month, Mystery and Charity Quilts and others worked on projects ranging from bags to small wall hangings to table runners to larger quilts. I always enjoy attending these retreats; it is an opportunity to maybe get to know other Guild members a bit more, to have some laughs and to learn something new. There is always someone who will help you out if you need it or to provide an opinion out if you ask.
For those who have not been to a retreat at Spruceholme Inn before, it is a lovely place with plenty of accommodation for everyone to have their own room with bathroom, a very large conference room so everyone has plenty of space to set up their sewing equipment and the meals are quite good.
We hope that if further retreats are planned in the future that a few more Guild members will be able to attend; it is always a fun time.
Thank you to Joyce Murray for organizing the retreat.
