EVQ Travel Club
The Travel Club is a group of quilters within the guild that like to travel. Past events have included retreats at the Oregon Coast, bus trips to the Sisters International Quilt Show held in the beautiful Cascade Mountains of Oregon, and trips to major quilt shows.
Our next big event is another trip to the Sisters Quilt Show on July 13, 2019. We have charted a luxury bus to take us on the scenic ride from Eugene to Sisters. The cost is $35.00 per person and includes bus fare, gratuity for the driver, a breakfast muffin and two bottles of water. Grab a coffee and join us for fun and games on the ride over. In the afternoon we will take a side trip into Bend, OR for a visit to two of Oregon’s finest quilt stores. After we have exhausted the shopping possibilities we will re-board the bus and return to Sisters to pick up any quilters that stayed behind. Then a relaxing ride home. This event is now open to guild and non-guild members. Only a few tickets left.
Join us for a four day retreat at the beautiful Adobe Resort at Yachats in the Spring of 2020. The accommodations are beyond compare with ocean view sleeping rooms and an ocean view sewing room.You will find welcoming guild members to help you with your project. This is a very simple retreat; it is SEW-SEW-SEW. Not a lot of planned activities just time to work on your project. However, there are gorgeous beaches to stroll on as well as an outstanding dining opportunity in the ocean front restaurant. We have planned dinners but it is your choice. More information coming late in 2019.
Another retreat is planned for the Fall of 2020, again at the Adobe Resort. One month of sign-up will be for guild members that have never attended an “Adobe Retreat”. Then registration will be open to all guild members on a first come first reserved basis.
Quilt Show Trips
The EVQ Travel Club is always looking for fun Quilt Shows to attend. Two separate groups have attended Road to California in past years. We are researching a trip to the quilt show in Santa Clara, CA for 2019. Let me know if you are interested.
Where would you like to go? Whether it is a group of two or more, or a bus full of quilters, give us your ideas and let’s see what we can put together.
