Please bring a finger food and your own beverage, and enjoy some friendship and learn a thing or two from Donna! The presentation is at Noon at the West Cape May Borough Hall where our meetings were held previously. *This is not a “workshop” there won’t be any sewing at this event, just a nice afternoon with friends to talk about quilting and gather some inspiration.

When you sign up, you will receive more detailed info about what’s included in the price. A few additional meals are added this year. There is a page on the sidebar with 2015 retreat info and prices.

New Business:         Helen suggested we donate to the Millman Center for use of the beautiful facility we use with no charge. $300 for this year was suggested and Helen also proposed we also include $300 for last year too because we overlooked a donation.
