UFO Quilt & Craft Retreat: Oct. 27th - Oct. 31st

We are so looking forward to having you with us for a wonderful weekend of crafting, sewing, and fellowship. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made some adjustments to ensure the health and safety of all guests at camp:

COVID-19 RETREAT PRECAUTIONS
  • All retreat guests are asked to practice good hand hygiene and maintain social distance when possible (hand sanitizing stations will be available in public areas).
  • Full vaccination of retreat guests is highly encouraged for the safety of all participants.
  • Guests are highly encouraged to wear a mask indoors, unless eating or drinking, and outdoors when social distancing cannot be achieved.
  • All Pyoca facilities have been outfitted with central air purifiers and enhanced cleaning measures have been implemented.
  • Anyone experiencing signs or symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, difficulty breathing) are asked to stay home for the protection of other guests and staff.

We are adhering to the latest CDC guidance. If conditions or expectations change we will notify all participants prior to the retreat.



UNFINISHED OBJECT (UFO) RETREAT
For nearly twenty years quilters and crafters have gathered at camp each fall for fellowship and to work on a variety of unfinished projects that are piling up at home. What kind of projects you may ask? Any and everything. Many guests bring their sewing machines and work on quilts, but feel free to bring your knitting, needlepoint, scrapbooking, or any other sewing/craft project along!

Quilters and crafters of all levels are welcome and work at their own pace throughout the retreat, and there's absolutely no expectation of having to finish your projects while attending the retreat. On Saturday evening guests will gather around for Show and Tell to show off the progress on their projects.
