Welcome to our Thunder Bay Resort Quilter’s Retreat BLOG. We decided to create a blog to share the news of activities here at Thunder Bay Resort. We also hope to hear from the many quilting friends that we have made during the three years of Quilter’s Retreats.We are excited that Mark Lipinski will be joining us here at Thunder Bay Resort. Mark is editor of Mark Lipinski’s Quilter’s Home magazine. He will be teaching his Simple Simon pattern during the retreat. Full details can be found on our website. We still have room if you would like to join us. Please call our Reservationists at 1-800-729-9375 to make your reservation. Mark’s website is www.marklipinski.com.Golf is in full swing here at Thunder Bay Resort. How about a little get away with your spouse? You can join us for a Quilter’s Retreat while your husband enjoys golf here at Thunder Bay Resort. We have a meal package for non-quilting spouses. You may also choose to take a break from sewing and get in a round of golf. Our fall retreat dates are September 4 – 7, October 9 – 12, October 16 – 19 and October 23 – 26.Please check back often, as we will be posting blogs when we have news to share.On a personal note, our son was married last Saturday. We had a beautiful weekend with family and friends. And, I actually finished their quilt a week before the festivities. Five former retreaters decided to do a Round Robin quilt and I invited myself to join in. We have been working on this Round Robin since January. The five retreaters will be back to Thunder Bay Resort in August and we will reveal our quilts to our Round Robin group and to the retreaters. It has been fun, but also very challenging.I am looking forward to hearing from you. I would love to know what you have been doing. Take care, **Pam Achatz, Quilter’s Retreat Coordinator
