Changes THIS YEAR!

  • We are moving the event to have most classes at Odegaard’s Sewing Center. We will also have classes at their retreat center which is about 10 minutes away. Since most attendees have their own accommodations in Flagstaff, we have reserved the retreat center for those who normally would get a hotel. It will be much more affordable. It sleeps 10-12 people and has a classroom. More info is available on the registration and accommodations page.
  • Classes will run from 9-12, and 1:30-4:30. More time to eat and/or shop.
  • No Charge for the Meet ‘n Greet Teachers Market and Showcase. THURSDAY evening at 6 pm
  • Gift Bag Exchange on Saturday. 12:15-1:15 Brown Bag lunch. Come get to know your fellow quilters and share in the fun. See here for details.
  • Block Exchange Event. Participate in the block exchange at lunchtime on Friday and go home with enough blocks for an entire quilt. See details on the Classes page, Friday. 
  • Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. One-hour project for only $10! No registration fee, so bring a friend, child, or grandchild. Friday night at 6pm

ALSO, the tradition continues: Don’t miss the Friday night Pajama Party! 7pm-?  Prizes for best PJ’s, open quilting room with prizes every hour.  Pizza is included!   Door prizes will only be given to those who wear their PJs!  Prizes for best, worst, cutest, most outrageous PJs. $10
