Canyon Quilt Retreats

In October, Canyon completed our 2nd retreat for 2023 and a great time was had by all! We are again planning two retreats in 2024 at the Vina De Lestonnac Retreat Center in Temecula. These retreats include sleeping arrangements, a long table to yourself for quilting, and meals. There is also lots of laughs, trips to the local quilt stores, and time for making new friends and reconnecting with old friends. Of course, in addition to the provided meals, most people bring snacks to share. So we never run out of food (or wine).

May 2024

  • Thursday, May 2nd, starting at 10am – Sunday, May 5th, ending at 2pm
    • Double Room    $548
    • Single Room      $748 (limited availability)
    • Triple                  $453 (limited availability)

August 2024

  • Thursday, August 22nd, starting at 2pm – Sunday, August 25th, ending at 2pm
    • Double Room    $526
    • Single Room      $726 (limited availability)
    • Triple                  $431 (limited availability)

There is also an option to come and join us for the day, without the sleeping arrangements. This is a $20 daily fee for the quilting room and a $22 fee for each meal. Please talk to Cherie at a Guild meeting if you are interested in more information about this option.

Canyon will be taking reservations (with a required $100 deposit) for both dates, starting at the January meeting and continuing until sold out. Both retreats sold out this year, so consider these fun events, check your calendar, and bring your $100 deposit to the meeting(s). If you cannot make the meeting, you can email Cherie after the meeting to request a spot and mail your $100, depending on availability.

SIT and SEW | Small Group Activity

SIT and SEWs are all held via Zoom. You can view the scheduled SIT and SEWS on both the Activities List on our home page and the Canyon calendar.

Additional Info

  • The SIT and SEWs use Zoom without a waiting room, which means you can come and go as you like.
    • There is no commitment or advance sign up necessary. Come for an hour or stay for the entire time.
  • Do handwork while you work on your project and visit, cut fabrics or do anything else sewing or chatting related.
  • This is the perfect time to work on those pesky UFOs, do handwork or start a new project!
