12TH ANNUAL QUILTING AT THE LAKE RETREAT
FIVE DAYS OF FUN IN THE SUN
LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. – Preparations are being made for the 12th Annual five-day Quilting at the Lake Retreat from January 8 – 12, 2019.
The annual event is sponsored by the Havasu Stitchers Quilt Guild and features a full schedule of five days of classes, prizes, shopping, and more. Early registration is a must! Class size is limited. By signing up early, attendees are assured of a seat in their chosen class. However, registrations can be taken on the day of classes – if there is availability. Also important, it allows for time to purchase the necessary supplies. Links to each instructor’ supply list will be in the registration material.
There will be a one-day Stitchers Bazaar Market Place at the London Bridge Convention Center on Thursday, January 10, 2019 where quilters can shop at booths set up by local area quilt shops from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM. The QAL Educator Mall will run from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM followed by Cindy Grisdela’s inspiring Trunk Show at 7:15. Admission to the Trunk Show event is $5.00 and features a cash bar.
Since 2007, Quilting at the Lake has attracted outstanding educators. This year’s educator lineup doesn’t disappoint as it offers all quilters – looking for quality classes – an exciting and fun learning environment. This year’s nationally and internationally known quilting experts and educators are, Shirley Gisi will teach two days of abstract landscape quilting; Cindy Grisdela offers a one-day table runner class, a two-day Play with Crayons class, and her Trunk Show; Carla Klop will teach a two-day Talking Points quilt class; Helen Frost Young will teach a two-day Blooming Nine Patch class, and a one-day Beautiful Bindings class. Join other quilters for an educational opportunity to learn from an expert at the premier quilting event on the Colorado River and to make new friends.
A Quilt Walk will exhibit small quilts on Friday and Saturday in the lobby halls of the London Bridge Resort.
The event takes place at The London Bridge Resort, 1477 Queens Bay, Lake Havasu City, AZ. This is a beautiful location and the perfect setting for the Quilting at the Lake Retreat and other planned activities.
