 UVQG Retreat 2018 Theme

   Sew Many More Friends

Are you as excited as I am about signing up for the fall retreat at the Zermatt?

Registration will begin April 2, 2018, when we email everyone a registration form.  This will be separate from the Patchwords Newsletter that will come out about the same time.  We will also put the form on the website so you can print it out at home.  If you only get a hard copy of the newsletter, you can still print a copy from the website or pick up a form at the April meeting.

Prices will increase slightly this year due to the fact that the hotel  increased our room rates and food prices.

 "Sew Many More Friends", that is what it is all about!  Any questions or concerns, please email me, Barb Murdock at

May 2018 Update

-by Barb Murdock

All slots for the November 7-10 retreat at the Zermatt have been filled. Wow, that did not take long! We will start a waiting list at this time and if you would like to put your name on the list, please let me, Barb Murdock, or Marilyn Hamblin know. Make sure your membership is current before you send in your name. We will contact you if any openings occur.

Pincushion Class

At the retreat, Nancy Jones agreed to come back and give another class on making the felted wool pin cushions. Due to the cost of the wool and supplies, each pin cushion will cost $10.00. You can start signing up for this activity at the May meeting. We will need to have you pay for the pin cushions in advance so that we can give the money to Nancy for supplies. You are welcome to sign up for as many as you would like. The class will be on Thursday morning during the retreat, then Nancy will take the pin cushions home and felt them and bring them back Thursday night or Friday morning. If you are unable to attend our regular monthly meeting, but would like to make one of the pin cushions, you can send a check to me, Barb Murdock, payable to the Utah Valley Quilt Guild, and I will add your name to the list.


Remember that you need to be a member to sign up.

{Each person coming needs to fill out a registration form, even if you are substituting for someone else.}

2018 setup posted on the right. Each table pod is composed of six individual tables. This setup is almost the same as last year--Note that the group table numbering has changed.
