Lazy Days of Summer Retreat at Watergirl Quilt Co.

You heard it right! We are finally having an in-person retreat at Watergirl Quilt Co. where you just step out our back door and you are looking at the St. Lawrence River - a great place to be on a summer day.

Your two day retreat will be hosted by Michelle as she sews along with you for the weekend. Let's dig out those projects waiting to be finished or started! Being in a room full of quilters is energizing and fun!

You will have your own table and an electrical outlet. No extension cords needed. Plus, you may use our cutting mats, irons and ironing boards. Coffee, tea, and bottled water will be available all weekend, complimentary.

Saturday, August 13th:

  • Sew all day from 8:30am to 9pm EST. 
  • Enjoy continental breakfast, lunch and supper, right at our Education Centre.  Dine inside or take your meal to the riverfront while you chat with your old or new quilting friends.
  • Evening game with prizes.
Sunday, August 14th:
  • Sew all day from 8:30 am to 4pm.
  • Enjoy continental breakfast and lunch, on site.
  • Morning mini-lesson about English Paper Piecing (15-20 minutes)
  • Wrap up with Show & Tell and a parting gift.

Where do you lay your weary bones after that busy day of sewing on Saturday?

Well you have two accomodation choices:

1. Drive back home to your own comfy bed where you will probably get to sleep under one of your own quilts. Leave your sewing machine and supplies safely waiting for you in our Education Centre for the second day of retreat.

2. Book a room at one of our local accommodations. Here are some links for you. This is a great excuse to treat yourself and a friend to a weekend away.

Zens Inn bed and breakfast style, single traveller rooms with shared bathrooms. Very modern. Walking distance to our store.

Ships Anchor Inn on the waterfront with pool. Historical setting. Less than 10 minute walk to our store.

Dewars Inn and Cottages Riverside cottages and motel rooms. 5 minute drive from our store.

So, come on your own or with a friend. Enjoy a drive to Prescott on a summer day. Pick a project or 2 or 3 and pack your sewing tote and your sewing machine, for 2 days of fun. 

Feeling extra lazy and don't want to drag your heavy sewing machine out of your home? We got that covered! Contact us to arrange to rent one of our Bernina sewing machines at a small fee. Great way to try out something new, too. Or, rent the long arm while you are here (must have taken certification class at Watergirl Quilt Co.).

Be sure to make time to stretch your legs with a walk along the Riverfront. Feel like attending an outdoor play at the Shakespeare Amphitheatre on the waterfront? Check out the schedule here.

So are you in for a couple of days of self care? Let us feed you and inspire you for a weekend of quilting fun!

Oh ya, here is the view outside our back door in the live theatre venue!
