Treat yourself to a delightfully fun sewing experience at our bi-annual River City Quilters' Guild Retreats. Have a great time with your quilting buddies and make lots of new friends, sewing, laughing, and playing games for wonderful handcrafted prizes.
Both retreats offer large conference rooms, allowing quilters to spread out and have large areas to stitch. Each room affords a beautiful view of old growth oak and redwood tree groves. Enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep after a fun day of quilting or go for a quiet walk within the secluded trees and pathways.
