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.

Camp Homewood (Quadra)

For over 18 years, our Guild has hosted a getaway retreat on beautiful Quadra Island at a non-denominational bible camp, Camp Homewood.  Our retreats welcome about 30 quilters who can immerse themselves in 4 days of fun, quilting, eating and relaxing.  For a reasonable fee we settle ourselves into camp life in accommodations ranging from shared, semi private and private rooms.  Included in the cost are 12 meals and an evening snack each night and especially unlimited time to sew.  One of the best perks of our retreats is the fun you have with other quilters from our Guild.
