Hi Quilters!

The Jacksonville Modern Quilt Guild’s Fall retreat is taking place 10/4/19 – 10/6/19 at Lake Swan Camp in Melrose FL. We still have room for a few more quilters/sewists so we are opening up registration to non-members! The fee for non JaxMQG members is only $180!! This includes a 2-night stay (double occupancy), and 6 meals starting with a 12:00 lunch on Friday 10/4. The BEST part is it also includes a membership to our guild through the end of 2019!! That way you can see all the great programs we have to offer and meet a great group of people too! We will be sewing, playing a couple of games and having drawings for amazing prizes. The easiest way to sign up is at Just click on the programs/swaps button in the menu and there is a paypal button to sign up and pay. The deadline for signups is 9/15 so don’t wait!! More details will be shared in the next few weeks as the retreat gets closer. We hope to see you there 😉
