Bobbin & Buggies Retreat



Would you like a couple of days away to relax and enjoy quilt making with some friends?  What better setting than the peaceful South Fork area of Casey County, at The Quilter’s Trunk, with fun instructors, friends in the classroom, a store of supplies and tech help in the building!

We offer you this adventure on Thursday, June 20 through Saturday, June 22.  Times are from 9 am – 9 pm Thursday and Friday and 7:45 am – Noon on Saturday with six meals provided.  As a bonus, we are adding a special horse and buggy ride up the scenic South Fork Ridge to the unique Homestead Gardens on Friday afternoon.

Our focus will be creating a lovely twin size quilt from the Radiant pattern by Cozy Quilt Designs.  You'll receive a quilt kit complete with the featured quilt pattern, fabrics for the quilt top, borders, and binding.  Your kit even includes backing and batting!  Various colorway options are available. 

To expand your creative repertoire, we’ll also stitch up several additional mini sewing projects during intermission from your quilt making time.  You’ll receive kits containing all the supplies needed for our special mini projects. (Kits for your Radiant Quilt and mini projects total a $145 retail value).

Class size will be limited to 10-12 students to provide optimal one-on-one instruction and elbow room for each student in the classroom.  “Frisky” Vickie Johnson and Laurie Lou Hood will provide you with 2 ½ days of instruction and Saphronia Hines and Denise Stewart will be sharing some additional knowledge and expertise.

For your convenience, local lodging is available.  The Horse & Buggy Inn (just a half mile or so up the ridge from The Quilter’s Trunk) and Sandy’s Cabins (near the Bread of Life restaurant) are keeping reservations exclusively available to The Quilter’s Trunk Bobbins & Buggies Retreat attendees for the nights of Thursday, June 20 and Friday, June 21.  You may contact them directly to make your arrangements.  Be sure to mention that you will be attending the retreat when inquiring about rates and accommodations.  Lodging is not included in your retreat fee.

If you have any questions at all please call the store at 606-787-7648. or contact our Class Coordinator, Laurie Lou Hood, at 859-339-2803 (call or text).   If you'd like to join us, just click "Add to Cart" to secure a place in class.  Then please contact the store or Laurie Lou so we can verify your contact information and send you a detailed packet with choices regarding your quilt kit and meal options.  We have some wonderful choices for you.

Please pay your registration fee of $325 by Thursday, June 13.

The deadline to receive a full refund for your registration is Wednesday, June 12.  Registration cancellations received from June 13- June 16 may be eligible to receive a refund less a $75 service fee.  After June 16, there will be a $150 service fee.  If The Quilter's Trunk chooses to cancel the event, the participants will be refunded in full.
