ANNOUNCING FVMQG 10th ANNIVERSARY RETREAT

Remember back to 2010??

  • Sandra Bullock won the Best Actress Oscar
  • Justin Beiber won the Juno for Best New Artist
  • Old Spice “The Man your Man could Smell Like” commercial went viral
  • ….AND THE FRASER VALLEY MODERN QUILT GUILD WAS BORN!

Fast forward 10 years …almost, and we are getting ready to celebrate our milestone anniversary!

We are pleased to announce our very first official FVMQG Member Retreat, in celebration of our 10th Anniversary!  As we get closer to the date we will be looking for volunteers to help with organizing, but for now we have locked down the dates and venue and are starting sign ups!

The retreat will be held at the Coast Hotel, Chilliwack. We are expecting a big group and this is the perfect venue, with a big, bright banquet hall, lovely rooms, a great lounge and a pool / hot tub – hooray!!  Plus there is shopping nearby (clothing/shoes/gifts), a Starbucks and a liquor store right across the street, and of course Chilliwack has great fabric stores – Hamels / Country Folk / Fabricland.
