I know you are into the winter projects, but it’s time to think ahead to Horseshoe’s SPRING Quilt Retreat .
Come join the staff at Horseshoe for a celebration of sewing. You are in for a fun filled three, four or five days
packed with wonderful things to sew and wonderful fellowship too. The week will be filled with small and large
projects. Maybe even a few surprises along the way.
We will have time to spend with old friends, make new friends and sew wonderful items picked just for
It is the perfect place to spend quality time with your sewing machine and quilting friends. Bring
a friend along to enjoy Horseshoe’s relaxed atmosphere, take advantage of this time to start a new project or catch
up on those projects you have started and just haven't found time to complete. While sewing you can enjoy the
beauty just outside the windows of our sewing areas. We will be staying our nights in a warm cabin with a warm
bathhouse close by or in the McManus Center with all the conveniences of home. We will be totally spoiled, just
quilting, eating and some sleep too.
Instructors for this retreat are: Karin Rodeheaver, (Bayard, WV) Bear Paw Quilt; Frances Harper, (Parsons,
WV) Sew Charmed Pillow; Rhonda Larson (Rawlings, MD) Sunny Day Apron; Mary Smith (Camp Horseshoe)
Sunshine of My Soul Tablecloth & Liberty Wall Hanging and Marie Sines ( Oakland, MD) Mystery Project for your
sewing enjoyment.
All you need to do is select the project or projects, (please be careful not to put yourself on
overload - you can only do so much in one weekend) make sure your machine is in good working order, start
gathering your fabric and pack your bags. Remember it’s your weekend to do just as you want with no obligations
other than to yourself.
I will be placing your name on the sewing station form for either the Lodge or the Library lodging areas in
the order registrations are received. The forms will be posted at the retreat so everyone can find where they will be
sewing and sleeping. Please read everything and follow directions accordingly. (don’t forget we have this
wonderful, warm, well lighted area in the Library, near the kitchen, for at least 6—8 people)
Please sign the release for pictures.
Fill out the registration form and mail it in ASAP or before May 1. We will then send you the schedule,
instructions, supply list for projects and what to bring list for our quilting weekend. Look forward to seeing you in
May and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Helpful Hints Just Becausse
For perfect matching when machine stitching, use very fine pins and sew over
Old scraps work well for patterns which suggests antiquity because the patterns
have been used for centuries.
Quilting with someone makes the time go faster and is a lot more fun!
