The Sunset Country Quilters Guild hosted an invitational retreat in Dryden this past weekend.
Sixty-five women filled up the Dryden Agricultural Hall for a weekend of sewing, creating, and maybe even a bit of gossip.
Sunset Country Quilters Guild president Tina Walsh praised fellow guild members for creating the event.
“Kathy Doherty had a great idea of bringing all the quilters in the area together for a retreat,” said Walsh. “It’s alternating, one year we will have the quilt show and one year we’re having a retreat and I think that it’s been such a success that we’ll look at pursuing it biennially.”
The event brought in women from all over the area including Thunder Bay, Kenora, Fort Frances and Sioux Lookout.
Marg Wallis who was seen working on a Volkswagen themed quilt during the event was happy to be among so many enthusiasts.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for so many people to get together from beginners to seasoned quilters and it’s a great exchange of ideas, projects on the go and we all come away with more ideas than we have time,” said Wallis.
