It's an excellent "Mystery Project" where the pattern and some fabrics are provided, if you'd like to participate. In addition be sure to bring a project or two you would like to work on. Additional tools that will be provided are a couple of large cutting mats, ironing boards and full-size irons.

The supplies you will need to bring are:

  • Fun & conversation ;-)

How do you register?  It's easy:

Two ways:

  • Bring a check (made out to Greenville Modern Quilt Guild) to Sandy or Faye at our next meeting in February. 
  • If unable to attend the February meeting and would like to make a reservation, please email Sandy Helsel at or Faye Jones at . 
If you need assistance finding a carpool and/or roommate and/or have any additional questions, please email Sandy.

Thank you Faye and Sandy for planning out all the details for us to getaway for an enjoyable weekend of quilting!
