FEBRUARY 25 – 28, 2019

Come! Join us for 3 and half days and 3 nights of sewing, fun, laughter, and music where you can pick up new skills or hone older quilting techniques, enjoy a welcome dinner, work on new projects or finish a UFO while chatting with friends, creating new friendships and enjoying the brand new Carlisle Inn located in the interesting Mennonite/ Amish district of Sarasota. Close to home, yet a great get away!
Quilters may fill their days with choices of morning and afternoon workshops/educational demonstrations, or they may choose to just sew, chat and laugh, or perhaps grab a few minutes to do a bit of shopping or relax pool side. Early risers will be invited to bring a cup of coffee and enjoy Morning Song and attendees can participate in the optional “Secret Stitcher” activity. (Expect some surprises yet to be announced.)
The registration fee ($387.00 for a shared room per person and $585.00 for a single room) includes a beautiful room with private bath (most with a walk-in shower), all breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, special dessert night, all gratuities, help with luggage and equipment, and an elevator. In the spacious room with 10 ft. ceilings can be found a refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. In addition, the Carlisle offers a fitness center, heated pool and free WiFi.
All payments should be made through the Venice Area Quilters’ Guild post office box or directly at a Guild meeting. Make checks payable to VAQG. One half of the registration fee is due upon registration ($193.50 for shared room and $292.50 for single) and the last installment is due on December 31, 2018. Registration forms will not be accepted without payment.
Day stitchers will be considered only after the minimum number of sleeping rooms have been reserved.
