Designer Fabrics’ Crystal Springs Retreats 2023
Crystal Springs Baptist Camp
March 30th-April 2nd, 2023
October 5th-8th, 2023
November 9th- 12th
Come and join us for a relaxing weekend of quilting! I know everyone is on a mission and a few extra hours may help make the difference in a finished quilt top!! We will be opening the retreat at 9:00 am on Thursday for everyone! Cost is $35.00 per night and $9.00 per meal. Sunday, most people leave around 3pm, but the staff won't kick you out if you have time to work on your quilts! You plan your own weekend!! There are no organized classes, just bring your own unfinished projects to work on!! Everyone must have a few of those tucked away… If you are all caught up or need something new from your wish list, Designer Fabrics will have a shop set up!! Or if you need something from Designer Fabrics that you know of ahead of time, let us know & we'd be happy to bring it with (whether it is bolts, cut yardage, or special-ordering patterns & notions!). Now's your chance to work on your UFOs uninterrupted in a well lit, huge space! We sew in the dining hall (which holds 200 people), and save a few tables to eat on. Bring long extension cords and maybe your favorite chair! Some even have their own 4 foot tables to use for cutting mats or ironing! Quilters can pack a car… and a trailer!!

We also have a table or so for the "grazing buffet" of shared snacks! Sleeping accommodations are dorm-style, with room for 100. So remember to bring a sleeping bag or bedding for a twin sized bed, pillow and toiletries.
PLEASE LEAVE YOUR ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES AT HOME, CRYSTAL SPRINGS PROHIBITS ALCOHOL ON CAMPUS.
**You will be fined $50 and asked to leave the retreat if you are not complying with their rules.**
This retreat is limited to 35 people, so we are asking for a $50 non-refundable fee for holding your reserved spot.
Remember... First come, first guaranteed. No exceptions, Reservations fill up fast!!
If you don’t hear from us, we will see you there! We will let you know if you need to be put on the waiting list.
