What's Happening?


Hi! I am Joyce Weeks aka Geoff's Mom Pattern Co. 
I purchased Quilt St. George from Marian Gallian and we will be continuing to have a wonderful Quilting Retreat and fun friend time!

I have some fun things planned... I want to have lots of OPEN Sew and a few fun classes. If you are like me when I first started attending quilt retreats all I did was take too many classes and had no time to sew or finish my projects. Don't get me wrong I love quilting and various craft classes but I had WAY too many unfinished projects. I guess this probably never happens to you???

I am working on some new dates because I don't want to conflict with other local Quilt retreats so you won't have to choose between other venues. 

I moved to Washington, Utah (St. George area) almost two years ago and I LOVE it here!
The weather can be a bit on the warm side in the summer but we do have air conditioning. 

I want some feed back from you guys!!! 
Are you wanting more open sew? 
What type of classes are you interested in? 


Spread the word that Quilt St George is going to be a fun time for all!!!!

Please leave your comments here...

Thanks friends.. old and new!!!
