Thanks -- I'd love to, but that is way too far for me to drive.  Have a great retreat!

After reading about the Branson retreat, I'm getting anxious for this one.    Hope all the previous DM retreaters can make it!

Annette, I'll be back - can't wait for September - but first I want a hot summer - I thought winter was over but it had to have one last hurrah I guess in OK... we are freezing this week... but I am warm thinking about Iowa in the fall.

I would be very interested in joining this retreat but I just got in on the conversation.  Barbara could you send me the details and let me know if I can still join?

 

Thank you

Gaylene

Hi Gaylene!

We would love to have you join us! We still have space for several people. This is a very casual retreat and we hold it Wed - Sun. We used to hold it in Des Moines, but we outgrew the space, so now we are going to hold it at a church camp about 20 miles north of Ames, Iowa. Below is a message I sent out to everyone a while back. You would need to bring your own bedding, and we break into groups to fix meals. Let me know if you are interested.

 

 

  I have booked the retreat center in Story City for next year - September 24 - 28, 2014!!! This place is larger and everything is on one level. There is also more space and sleeping arrangements, so we will be able to open up the retreat to more people! We will have room for an additional 6 people, maybe more if someone on the list can't make it, so spread the word!

  I did have to pay a deposit on this retreat center, so I am going to ask everyone to pay a $25 deposit. Then the final fee will be determined by how many people we have attend. The total cost is $1520 whether there are 10 people or 20. I am hoping to get at least 15 people, so then the cost would be 101.33/person.

Judy, is there room for another?  I would love to go.  I can send my deposit as soon as I get the word from you.

Roxana and Elaine,  I live about an hour southwest of Liberty, MO and have to drive right through Liberty to get to Iowa.  I have a Toyota Avalon so should have  have plenty of room to help haul stuff and people!  Maybe we can caravan up.  Don't know if anyone else will be coming through here, but it would be fun to go together. 

Judy, please, please have room for me.  I have never been to a quilting retreat before and really want to do one.  This one is close enough to drive and fits my budget!

OK, I'm back from a trip to Las Vegas! It was nice to be in the warm weather for a while. There is still room at the retreat. We would love to have you!! The retreat will be held just north of Ames, Iowa (about 17 miles) at Riverside Bible Camp in the Retreat Center. This is just off of I-35. There is a paved road to the camp, but there is a gravel road to the building once you get to camp. We have a $25 deposit, and then the balance will be due at the retreat. We are up to about 18 people now, so the total cost should be around $85 if everyone comes.

You can send the $25 deposit to: PO Box 467, Roland, IA 50236.

Looking forward to September!!!! Let me know if you need any more info.
