    Gardom Lake Retreat (Fall)
    Oct 13 – Oct 16 all-day

    Imagine 4 days and 3 nights of uninterrupted sewing, quilting and being with a really fun group of ladies! Your food is made for you, and you’re surrounded by other crafty people, this retreat always fills so out your deposit down soon. Retreat Starts at 10:00 on Thursday and ends at 3:00 on Sunday

    Thread & Paper Quilt Retreats

    The Thread & paper Fall 2022 retreat will be happening Oct 13-16th, at Gardom Lake. We are so excited to be back sewing with all of our friends. Please find our Facebook page “Thread & Paper Quilt Retreats” so please join us there if you are on Facebook.

    You can arrive Thursday any time after 10am, your retreat fee includes dinner on Thursday, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday, and breakfast and lunch on Sunday. We would like to have everyone cleared out by 3:00 on Sunday afternoon.

    We will now have one price $375 (no early or late price) When you put your $50 non-refundable deposit down, it is non-refundable, not for cash, not for store credit, or anything else. This holds your spot in the retreat and comes off the final price. We would like to have everyone pay the remainder of their balance one month before the retreat.

    We are counting on having a large group, and because Gardom Lake has expanded their kitchen, bathrooms and other common areas they are able to accommodate more people.  More people, more fun, more jokes, more inspiration! 

    We will have some people quilting upstairs and some downstairs, and there will be some people in cabins and some in the lodge. The first 30 people who sign up will be upstairs and sleeping in the lodge, everyone after that will be sewing downstairs and sleeping in a cabin. The cabins are lovely and they have their own bathrooms so there really is no advantage or disadvantage to where you sleep or sew. The food is delicious and the company is great, everyone who is out there is there to have a good time with a positive attitude. 

    There will be no private rooms available but depending on availability some private cabins may be available for a $50 fee, otherwise count on sharing a room with 4-5 other people, as always we will take requests so you can sew and room with your friends.

    Please make sure we have a current email address for you, as this is how we send out our reminders and supply lists just before the retreat.

    please call or email with any questions info@threadandpaper.com
