During the fall 2019 retreat, we celebrated our tenth anniversary!
During the fall 2019 retreat, at our tenth anniversary celebration, Nancy won the grand prize gift box! It was the envy of all quilters.
During the fall 2019 retreat, at our tenth anniversary celebration, we could not believe that Nancy also won the quilt that we donated for a fundraiser!
Being a quilter and already having a lot of quilts, Nancy gave the quilt to Paula (retreat owner)! To say the least, Paula was beyond thrilled!

2018 – This beautiful batik quilt was donated to the retreat center as a fundraiser. The blocks were stitched by the quilters during the retreat. It was pieced by Mary Ellen Futch and quilted by Debbie Lane. Proceeds benefitted the Survivor Retreat for widows and children of fallen soldiers (a three day retreat with no expense to the families).
2017 – The quilters are hard at work on a charity/fundraiser quilt that has 110 blocks!

We loved seeing Abbie’s impressive turkey quilt. What a talented lady!

What should a quilter expect at my award winning retreat? Five days of uninterrupted quilting, fun and camaraderie.  Lodging in a beautiful setting with breath-taking mountain views, wonderful meals cooked with TLC and home-baked delectable goodies. 

The atmosphere is relaxed, the dress is casual and the people you meet will become life-long quilting friends. Here are some comments from quilters who attended previous quilting retreats:
•“This is the best quilting retreat I’ve ever been to.”
•“This was my first quilting retreat and it exceeded all my expectations.”
•“I want to thank you for the well planned meals which were great and the special material colors and the beautiful wooden bowl and door prize too!”
•“Beautiful country setting.”
•“Beds were very comfortable.”
•“Meals were great.  Healthy and adequate.”
•“Floyd was a very nice little fun community. Great road trip.”
•“Everyone gets along so great—wonderful way to meet new friends and quilters.”
•“Facilities were excellent.  The camp was quite spectacular.”
•“I learned a lot and laughed a lot—I don’t think it gets any better than that!”

In 2010, during the Virginia DAR State Conference, “Camelia’s 5 Day/4 Night Quilting Retreat” received the prestigious “Best Cultural Events Award”.
