Stay at Home Retreats

Get the best of all worlds!  Quilt all day and enjoy the camaraderie of your quilt buddies, learn new STUFF and go home to sleep in your own bed.

These are fun, busy and entertaining days at Arrowsmith Agriculture Centre in Coombs.

The Guild offers three of these popular retreats during the year in March, May and October.

Because of COVID-19 the Stay At Home Retreats will be a little different. 

We’ve moved to a Zoom platform for our March retreat and the workshop is currently full,

Camp Homewood (Quadra)

Over 15 years ago our guild began the tradition of hosting a getaway retreat on beautiful Quadra Island at a non-denominational bible camp, Camp Homewood. Our retreats welcome between 35 and 40 quilters to escape from their reality and immerse themselves in 4 days of fun, quilting, eating and relaxing. For a nominal fee we settle ourselves into camp life in accommodations ranging from shared bunk house style digs to semi private and private rooms. Included in the cost are 3 meals a day, an evening snack each night and unlimited time to sew. One of the best perks to our retreats is the fun you have with other quilters from our Guild.
