Summer Fun! -Quilt Getaway in Galena, IL

Last week at Farmers Guest House we hosted our first Quilt Getaway! Women from as far as Chicago came with scrap quilt pieces to make special memories and beautiful quilts. The retreat kicked off on Monday with a welcome of wine and cheese for all! This was a great chance for the quilters to get acquainted and share their stories. Tuesday began with Susan’s full house breakfast, including her banana bread, Susan’s Signature Egg Casserole and fun door prizes.  After breakfast, the quilters began sewing their project pieces into beautiful quilts.

Rosemary N. attended the quilting retreat and was very pleased with her stay. Rosemary said, “I’m overwhelmed with your generosity.  You all have gone above and beyond to help us with any little thing we may have needed. I am so proud to be a part of the first “quilting retreat.”  Susan, you are a very special person, so outgoing and eager to please.  Everything was just wonderful. I wish you and Don a happy and wonderful life here at the Farmers Guest House.”

Susan and Don truly appreciate this feedback and look forward to the next quilting retreat scheduled for this fall. If you would like more information of upcoming events, call Susan or Don at 815-777-3456.
