KHQS 2018 Spring Retreat


KHQS sponsors a Spring Retreat each year at the Kentucky Leadership Center in Jabez, KY in late February.  That might sound early for ‘spring’, but last year’s retreat saw us out taking walks in Tshirts with temps in the low 80s.  It is Kentucky, you know.


The 2018 KHQS Spring Retreat is scheduled for Thursday – Sunday, February 22 – 25 with a weekend option of Friday – Sunday, February 23 -25.  There are no classes to attend, no one telling you what supplies you need.  It’s just you and your own projects, combined with food, sleep, plenty of time for sewing and the companionship of fellow quilters.  It’s a great time to make new friends and catch up with old ones.

The Kentucky Leadership Center at Jabez is owned and operated by the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment and the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service.  It is located on Lake Cumberland just 16 miles from the Cumberland Parkway (near Somerset, KY).

The retreat will begin on Thursday afternoon and conclude on Sunday after lunch.  Lodging and meals (Thursday evening dinner through Sunday lunch) are included in the registration fee.  In addition to the 4-day retreat format, a weekend option is offered.  You may choose to come on Friday afternoon and stay through Sunday after lunch (meals include Friday evening dinner through Sunday lunch).

Prices for the retreat are as follows and include meals:
