20th Annual Mystery Quilt Retreat: Mar. 22nd - 26th, 2023
For twenty years quilters have joined us at Pyoca each spring to sew their own "Mystery Quilt." Before arrival, each participant receives fabric measurements and cutting instructions for the Mystery Quilt, but will not see the full quilt pattern until they arrive. Quilters of all levels are welcome and work at their own pace. There's absolutely no expectation of having to finish the quilt while attending the retreat. Depending on the year's pattern, some folks are able to finish piecing together the top before departure.More Info: Registration will open Monday, January 9th, 2023 at 8:00AM. Learn more about this upcoming program and how to register.
