Quilting Day Camp 2021 Was So Much Fun!

Our quilting day camp was such fun! Thanks to everyone who spent the day with us to sew, talk, pose for close-ups, eat, win, and all the rest. Shout out to Millissa Masters for her work designing and organizing a leader/ender project, which one day will be another Get ‘er Done community quilt; to Linda Jolly for applying her magic touch to the hexi quilts; and to everyone who helped sew (an unsew) the hexi blocks.

And, we had truly generous donors who contributed to our prizes and swag bags. Please support and thank these terrific folks:

Here’s what some of our attendees said when we asked what they liked about the retreat:
“Food was great, lots of social time and great prizes.”
“Seeing everyone! Working on the community quilts. Sharing ideas and seeing what everyone is working on. I left renewed and inspired.”
“Seeing everyone again and just chatting with people. Getting my creative juices flowing again!”
“So very happy to get out of the house and sew. Thank you!!! LOVED the swag bag and I am excited for the tshirt.”
If you attended and have pictures to share on social media, be sure to tag them with #boisemqg. And, check out our Instagram profile @BoiseMQG for more photos in the coming weeks.

We are getting so excited for our upcoming Quilt Day Camp next month! We’ve now closed our registration, and are making final preparations for our event!

Here are some photos from last year’s retreat in Stanley, to give you a flavor of what to expect this year. We’re also doing a countdown sponsor spotlight on our Instagram and Facebook pages, where you can see some sneak peeks of the swag and raffle items that were donated this year.
