Celebrate Friendships with Quilts

June 27-30, 2018

Join us for our seventh quilt camp in the cool mountains of Flagstaff, AZ! Classes and events at Odegaard’s Sewing Center

Registration will open March 31

Hi quilters!
Celebrate Quilts is coming!
Save the dates!
Celebrate Friendships with Quilts
June 27-30, 2018

Some changes: We will NOT be at the hotel this year.
Classes will be at Odegaards, their retreat center, and Wendy Wetzel’s garage 🙂 She will be teaching a fabric dyeing class.

If you are coming from out of town and want an affordable place to stay, the retreat center has accommodations for 10-12 people. You can make a reservation with the Celebrate Quilts registration form, which will be available mid-March.

We are still waiting for some teacher confirmations – some classes will include Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day classes, fabric dyeing, binding and finishing, color theory, machine quilting, fabric painting, and more.

Check the website for more details which will be added as they are confirmed.

Can’t wait to quilt with all of you!


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 projects 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
