MVQ Fall Quilt Retreat

Posted on Updated on


Hello everyone!

I hope you have been enjoying the crisp autumn air and getting out in the sunshine.

This is a NEW UPDATE about the Fall Retreat at FGH 11/11/20 to 11/15/20….
Maine is lifting the travel restriction for Massachusetts residents beginning 9/24/20. Those people traveling from Massachusetts will no longer be required to have a COVID test.

Please let Phyllis Lauria ( know ASAP if you would like to attend the Fall Retreat based on this information. Currently, there are only 5 people interested in the retreat and that is not enough people to go forward.

We need to let FGH know on 9/25/20 if we will be having the retreat.

Fall Quilt Retreat Registration is OPEN!!!

Posted on Updated on

Where:                 Franciscan Guest House Kennebunk, Maine

When:                  Wednesday, November 6-Sunday, November 10 2019

It’s that time of year again!  We are now accepting registrations for the Fall Retreat.  Please get your registrations in early as this is a first come, first served event and space is limited by the number of rooms available and the capacity of the sewing room. If there are more registrations than we have space for, there will be a waiting list. 

Please note that at the time of registration, you must be a current paid member of MVQ for the 2019-2020 year in good standing and have committed to volunteer in some capacity for the 2019 Quilt Show.  If you are unsure if you have paid your membership dues, please contact Bev Valle.

The registration form and price list are both on the MVQ website.  Please indicate your room choice and roommate on the registration form.  Roommates will be charged for the same number of nights per room regardless of arrival/departure.  For example, if you arrive on a Wednesday and your roommate does not arrive until Friday, the rate for both will be for 4 nights.  This is per request of Franciscan Guest House.  There are only 2 ground level rooms available to us and if we have more requests than we can accommodate, there will be a lottery for those rooms.

This year, there may be an option to stay until Monday, November 11th if we get a minimum of 10 people.  Please indicate on the registration form if you are interested.  If we get 10 people, we will have you send in a check for the extra night.

Please check the price list and complete the registration form.  Checks (payable to MVQ) must be included with registration.  Please mail to:  Phyllis Lauria, 23 Red Oak Acres, Merrimac, MA 01860

We can’t wait!!
