March 2022 Retreat Review

Several members of the Saskatoon MQG met between March 25th and 27th at the Queen’s House Retreat & Renewal Centre in Saskatoon for a fantastic weekend of sewing and playing games. The view out the window was spectacular in the brightly lit space. We sewed and they cooked for us! The show-and-tell Saturday night was so inspiring. And so was being in a room full of such talented quilters.

Our next meeting will be on May 1st and will be a sew day as the room was booked for the 4th Sunday of April. Please consider bringing a fabric sandwich as the education topic will be machine quilting. Then you can practice!
