Over 30 BVQ members attended the 2015 BVQ Retreat at the Black Rock Retreat Center in Quarryville, PA, from Thursday, April 16 to Sunday, April 19, 2015.
It was a huge success! It combined the very best of BVQ – ART (such creativity!), PHILANTHROPY (charity quilts) and FELLOWSHIP. And then there was the FUN!
Thanks to Ellen’s thorough planning and effective negotiating, we had the use of the Cedar and Pine workrooms on the lower level of the main building. We sewed, learned new techniques and of course, dined, snacked and socialized. Once again, we enjoyed the Saturday evening ice cream social and “strip poker” game, when hilarity abounded!
Many thanks again to Ellen Nobles-Harris and Julia Penna for coordinating this fun and productive get-away.
Hi I'm Deb, BVQ webmaster and official blog runner! I am a retired Medical Technologist, having worked the night shift at Chester County Hospital for 30 years. I think I have sewed forever – my mom sewed, my grandmother sewed, and in 1984 I decided to make a "blanket" for my about-to-be baby....it was 3 layers sewn together with a binding! Little did I know it was a quilt! I am basically self-taught, but continue to learn as I hang out with BVQ. My basement work area is seriously quilt cluttered and my better half asks no questions! I have too many UFO’s and want-to-do’s than I can count, but I guess that makes me a true quilter!
