We are indeed a lucky bunch of quilters here in Orillia. It is our good fortune to celebrate two retreats, both very local and yet both very different.
The 8th Annual Quilting by the Lake will be held again this year at the fabulous Fern Resort. This retreat offers instruction by the incredibly talented and delightfully fun Sew Squared team, Wanda Milankov and Sue Bodis. It runs for three days only every fall, and has space for up to X-NUMBER of quilters. Warning! Spaces do fill up quickly so don't wait too long too book.
The exquisite Fireside Retreat is an historic stone farmhouse where up to 8 quilters can enjoy spectacular views and quilting friendships at anytime of the year and book as much time as they need. There is large country kitchen where the quilting guests are welcome to prepare their own delicious meals and a separate dining room, complete with stone hearth to provide the utmost ambiance for any quilting escape.
Fireside Retreat offers accommodations for up to eight guests in a beautifully restored circa 1830 home quietly nestled on 2 acres overlooking rolling fields and forest , just minutes from Orillia, Ontario.
