HMQG hosts two member retreats each year - Spring and Fall

Retreats run Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. All meals are provided from dinner Friday through breakfast/brunch Sunday.

Thursday is an add-on day for those who choose this option. Meals are typically not provided on Thursday night through Friday lunch. More details are sent in advance of each retreat.

Sign-ups are through the Member page. The date and time of sign-ups opening are announced in advance. Sign ups are first-come, first-served; a limited wait list is also available when the retreat sells out. There are typically about 20-24 spots available. 50% of the retreat cost is due at sign-up; the balance is paid before retreat.

Misc retreat tips:

  • Sheets, quilt, and towels are provided but bring your own pillow. Rooms accommodate four retreaters so consider packing an eye mask or earplugs/earbuds for sleep comfort.

  • Ironing stations and cutting stations are provided. Some retreaters choose to bring a small iron and wool pad to keep by their machine.

  • You may want to cut and prepare your fabrics at home so you can get right to sewing.

  • Bring more projects to work on than you think you will complete.

  • Bring some hand sewing if you need a break from your machine.

  • Make sure you have all your sewing machine parts - extra feet, electrical cord, foot petal, etc. It's also good to bring an extension cord.

  • Wear casual, comfortable clothes. Makeup is not required! 

  • Bring your favorite snacks, drinks and (adult) beverages if desired. There is a single refrigerator to accommodate all retreat participants so please pack cold items considerately.
