Mystery Quilt Retreat


Upon registration, participants will receive a supply list including fabrics to prepare for the retreat. Clues will then be revealed throughout the weekend to complete a beautiful quilt top. Margaret Wade, a professional quilter from Greenville, Virginia will be leading the retreat. There are several registration options to choose from and a basic understanding of piecing is required. 

Margaret Wade is a native of southwest Virginia and has lived in Greenville, Virginia for 45 years. Margaret holds a Bachelor of Science degree in home economics from Virginia Tech and has been an avid seamstress throughout her life. Upon retirement, Wade immersed herself into the world of quilting and has been quilting professionally on her Handi Quilter long-arm machines for the past six years. Margaret was invited to quilt two quilts for Barbara H. Cline, both of which were included in Cline’s book Simply Triangles (C&T Publishing, 2012.) Wade is also a quilter for Patchwork Plus, the largest quilting store in the Shenandoah Valley located in Dayton, Virginia. We will feature a trunk show of Margaret's work on Sunday. 

This retreat is limited to 20 participants (with a minimum of 12). Members of Wolf Hills Quilters, Blue Ridge Quilters, First Frontier Quilters, Appalachian Heritage Quilters and Sycamore Stitchers receive a 30% discount on this event.
