The spring No Frills Retreat was a huge success! Everyone had a great time, so Cathleene said, "Let's do it again!"
Here's the scoop!

The Fall No Frills Retreat will again be held at the lovely Hilton Garden Inn, located near Hwy 54 and the Tampa Suncoast Parkway. You can book a room at the hotel or commute, your choice. The facility has a large room with great tables, sturdy enough for even the biggest sewing machines. For dining the Northpoint Village Shopping Center is just steps away. There are restaurants galore, enough to eat someplace new every day. Dining is also available in the hotel. As a special bonus, there is also a quilt shop to browse.

Retreat dates are Wednesday September 29th through Sunday October 3rd. The sewing room will be open from 7am to 11:45pm. Think of all the quilts you can finish while enjoying the company of friends new and old. Spots are going fast. Thursday and Friday are already SOLD OUT!!

The price for the use of the sewing room is only $35 a day and you can choose from any or all of the dates listed above. Registration fees will not be refunded unless there is a waiting list for the day(s) you plan to attend. Click here to make your reservations today.

If you choose to stay at the hotel, the rates are $109 for two double beds, or $114 for a king. Again, don't wait too long to book, the rooms filled up quickly last time. Click here for information.

Join in the fun at the SDQ Fall No Frills retreat, you'll be glad you did.
