Last Chance to Sign Up for the #OHCraft Sew In

Just an update on this fun retreat being hosted here in Ohio. Details are below - sign up for the retreat here. Registration Closes on August 1st!

When: Friday, November 8 from 3:00 PM to Sunday, November 10 at 12:00 PM

Location: Hueston Woods Lodge & Conference Center 5201 Lodge Road College Corner, OH 45003
Thanks for your interest in the first annual #OHcraft sew-in; we are so excited to have you! :) This sew-in will not only include lots of sewing time but will also include options for a few swaps and maybe a field trip or two to a local LQS... be sure to watch your email in the months coming up to our fabulous weekend for details!

This sew-in will be at the lodge and conference center in beautiful Hueston Woods, located just outside of Oxford, Ohio. There are two registration options for this sew-in: Friday-Sunday or just Saturday. Prices for Friday-Sunday are:

$279.00 +tax: one person/room
$189.00/person +tax: two people/room
$159.00/person +tax: three people/room
$139.00/person +tax: four people/room

The prices above not only reflect the lodging but also include sewing space as well as dinner on Friday, breakfast and lunch on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday! If you have special dietary needs, please make a note of them in the registration form- they can be accomdated by the chef! :)
If coming just on Saturday works best for you (please arrive between 9:00 and 10:00am), the price is $20.00+tax which includes sewing space and lunch.

All rooms have double beds; if you choose to room with 2 or 3 other people, you will need to share beds. If you are coming alone and would like to share a room with someone else who will also be coming alone, please say that below and I will assign you with a roomie. I will assign only two people/room and these assignments will be emailed out in September. If there is an odd number of people requesting roomies, the last person's registration I receive will be assigned a single room (I will email that person before doing so). Please note that up to four people who know each other can share a room together (two to a bed) but I will just be assigning rooms of two people, as requested, since it'd be a little odd to share a bed with a stranger. ;)

There is a refundable deposit (returned when you arrive at the sew-in) of $50 for peeps spending the night and $20 for the folks coming on Saturday only. I will send out invoices for deposits via PayPal only and hope to receive the deposits back as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, please email Kara at . Please note that due to the size of the conference center at Hueston Woods that this sew-in is LIMITED TO 60 PEOPLE. Please don't wait to register as all spots may be filled!

Hope to see y'all at Hueston Woods in November! :)

See you this Thursday!

This Thursday, July 18th at 7 pm is our monthly Columbus Modern Quilt Guild Meeting! As always, everyone is welcome, no charge and no need to bring anything - though everyone is encourage to bring a show and tell quilt/sewn object or work in progress

A couple details:

  • Barb is looking to write an article on pieced Quilt Backs (or even two sided quilts). If anyone has any quilts they designed and made themselves with interesting quilt backs, would they please bring them to the meeting to be photographed? 
  • Swap! There will be a swap to make Ann’s cute seat belt cover. Just bring a baggie with some small pieces of fabric to be teamed up with another member for the swap.
  • We'll be discussing the July 27th trip to the Dairy Barn Arts Center trip to see the Quilt National 2013. 
  •  We'll be discussing the details on the potential for membership into the National Modern Quilt Guild
  • Last but not Least…last month we collected contributions ($2/person) so that we can apply to become an NQA guild, but we came up a bit short. Please consider contributing at this meeting.
