We are the Procrastinating Quilters. We meet the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM. Our location is:
Seville Recreation Center
2640 Seville Blvd
PROGRAM — June 17, 2018, Brenda Grampsas
Brenda Grampsas will be our guest speaker at our June meeting. Her lecture/trunk show is entitled “A Bounty of Miniature Quilts”. Brenda will have lots of miniature antique quilts as well as accessories and dolls to display. She will discuss the general rules for acquiring antique miniature quilts and what is considered a small/miniature quilt and what to remember when making a small or doll quilt.
Don’t forget to bring your small quilts for show and tell.
Our next quilt retreat will be Thursday, April 4 through Sunday, April 7, 2019. It will be held at Hampton Inn & Suites, 4017 Tampa Road, Oldsmar, FL 34677.
Everything will be under one roof and parking is free. There will be hospitality service of coffee and water located throughout the hotel. And there will be water service in the Ballroom where we will be sewing. Each person will have their own table and chair. We will have three additional tables for cutting and layout. Also there will be 3 iron stations set up and irons will be provided.
You can set up in the Ballroom starting at 12:00 on Thursday, have lunch on your own then you can check into your room sometime around 3:00 pm. The Hampton Inn has provided us with a link to reserve your room at our group rate of $99.00 plus 13% tax. Only one person from each room should make the reservation. The total for the 3 nights is $335.61 that will be divided between the numbers of people sharing a room. There are 2 queen beds in each room.
The cost for the Ballroom and meals will be $187.50 per person. This cost is a little less than we originally thought. The meals included will be dinner on Thursday, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday then breakfast on Sunday. The pricing is based on 40 people attending the retreat. If you have any special dietary needs please let us know well at least one month in advance so we make sure we can take care of this for you. There isn’t anything in the contract saying we cannot bring in outside food, so if you would like to bring something to share there shouldn’t be any problem.
A deposit of $50.00 will secure your spot for the retreat. The second payment of $68.75 will be due Dec 15th 2018 and the final payment of $68.75 will be due Feb 15 2019. You can give your deposit/payments to Diane Friedman or Janet Jensen. This way we can keep track of how many will be attending from our group and who has paid.
This should be a fun new adventure for our group. If you have any questions please email or call Janet and Diane.
