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

This retreat is full; please join us at the next retreat.

August 2024

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

Philanthropy Sew Along

Starting June 24, 2024

Canyon Philanthropy Sew Along

Starting in June 2024, Canyon is hosting a Philanthropy Sew Along on the 4th Monday of the month from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Bring your own Canyon philanthropy project to work on, help make a quilt from donated fabric and/or tops, or cut and sew a binding on a quilt that is almost ready to find a new home.

  • Date: 4th Monday of every month
  • Time: 9:00am to 3:00pm, come and go as you please
  • Location: La Jolla Village Square

Once you arrive at the shopping center, park between PetSmart and Smiles Dentistry (the signage is up high on the buildings). Go through the glass doors that go into the mall. The meeting room is straight ahead.
