Retreat 2020

Please RSVP for Coachella Valley Quilt Guild retreat
Please RSVP for Coachella Valley Quilt Guild retreat at the Vina de Lestonac Retreat Center in Temecula.  The Center has given us two dates to choose from so please contact Guild Member Alena Callimanis ASAP with your preferred date or dates if you can make both.   We need to let the Retreat Center know as quickly as possible. 
1) November 12th to November 15th (arrival Thursday late afternoon, or Friday morning, with departure by Sunday afternoon.  This date still gives you flexibility, since it about two weeks before Thanksgiving.
2) December 7th to 10th (arrival Monday late afternoon or Tuesday morning, with departure by Thursday afternoon.
Cost is $410 double occupancy, $550 single occupancy.   All meals are included.  Since this was a convent at one point, don’t expect Hilton luxury rooms!  But everything is clean and comfortable. 
Because the Retreat Center cannot today predict what will happen with California regulations and social distancing, no deposit is required at this time to reserve your spot.  
The retreat gives quilters of all levels a chance to work as much (or as little) as you want on your own projects.  There is a large room with tables and plenty of space to spread out and work.  And the room is locked up overnight so you don’t have to worry about your things.  The retreat is strategically scheduled before Christmas to give you uninterrupted time to do your quilts, especially if you will be making holiday gifts.  There are great fabric stores in Temecula, as well as great wineries, so you will have the flexibility to enjoy these side trips! And excellent food is provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
You can also download the signup form and provide your information.
 If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Alena at 919 606-6164 or
