Let’s try again!
We’ve planned events and cancelled events. Blast this Covid!!!
As you know, Spring Retreat was held for years at the 4-H Leadership Center in Jabez, KY. The University of Kentucky made the decision to close that facility permanently shortly after Spring Retreat 2020, which sent us in search of a new location. You may remember that Spring Retreat 2021 was planned for General Butler State Park, but was cancelled due to Covid-19. It had been decided to try different venues to see what fit best. The usual number attending Spring Retreat is 50, which limits our possible venues.
So Spring Retreat 2022 is planned for February 24-27 in the West Wing of Cave City Convention Center (that’s the left side as you’re facing the building). Retreat will begin at 11am on Thursday, Feb. 24 and will end at 3pm on Sunday, Feb 27. Hours will be Thursday 11am-midnight (or later if the coordinator can hold out!); Friday and Saturday 7am – midnight (again ??) and Sunday 7am-3pm. All times are Central.
Meals will include dinner on Thursday, lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday and brunch on Sunday. The cost of Spring Retreat 2022 will be $125. A 3-day option is available at a cost of $90. This does not include lodging.
Blocks of rooms have been reserved at Comfort Inn and Sleep Inn in Cave City. The price is $85 for two queen beds. All rooms are non-smoking. Reservations should be made by Feb. 10 to insure this price and are the responsibility of the attendees. Ask for ‘Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society’, not ‘KHQS’ as this has caused some confusion in the past. Comfort Inn’s number is 270-773-3335. The number at Sleep Inn is 270-773-2030. Please note: When you call choose 2 for the front desk and not 1 for reservations. Choosing 1 will take you to the national call center and you will not receive our special pricing.
Registration will open on November 1. Please understand your place will not be held without a deposit. Please pay attention to the different options when registering, there is a 3 day option and a 4 day option.
Come join us for sewing, friendship, sewing, good food, sewing,games, sewing, laughter, sewing (and music after 10pm).
A decision was made by the Board at their August, 2021 meeting to make all refunds for cancelled events paid by check, rather than credit on each member’s account. We apologize if this causes anyone any inconvenience.
