Spring Fling AWOL Retreat - Last Chance to Register is March 1st!
Friday, March 16 to Sunday, March 18, 2018
AWOL (Arkansas Women on the Loose + guys, too) is held at the C. A. Vines Arkansas 4-H Center in Ferndale, Arkansas. AWOL is 3 days away from home where you can sew and quilt to your heart’s content with lots of other quilters! Bring yourself, your sense of humor, your supplies and plan on spending a relaxing weekend away. We usually have a few mini-demos but plan on spending the time working on what you want. It’s a great time to start a new project, finish a few of those old projects and get ideas and insight from other quilters. Any level of quilter is invited. You can select the whole shebang, one night or just the day option. Payments may be made in installments. Meals and 24-hour beverage service are included with your registration.
We have three work rooms starting at 9:00am Friday morning. If you’ve attended one of our past AWOL or Quilt Arkansas events, you know that these rooms are great!
Registration fee for each package includes beverage service, mandatory facility fees, and insurance. To reserve your spot, send at least a $25 deposit along with your registration form (this applies toward your total due).
~~ Registration and all remaining balances must be paid by March 1, 2018. ~~
