Retreat at Watergirl Quilt Co. - 3 Day Option

November: The last month of autumn, but the beginning of a new adventure;
time to take a risk and do the unexpected.

How about joining an in-person retreat at Watergirl Quilt Co. and make new friends, learn something new perhaps and spend time doing what you love?

This 3 day retreat is 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!

You will have your own table plus, you may use our cutting mats, irons and ironing boards. Coffee, tea, and bottled water will be available all weekend, complimentary. Meals are included (see descriptions for more details) and you will receive a welcome bag of goodies.

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.

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

There are also a few Air Bnb rentals in Prescott.

So, come on your own or with friends. 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 for a small fee. Great way to try out something new, too. 

Be sure to bring a sweater for a autumn walk the Riverfront. 

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