KHQS 2019 Spring Retreat

Just when you think winter will never end, The KHQS Spring Retreat will carry you through!

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 the weather the last two years was fabulous!

The 2019 KHQS Spring Retreat is scheduled for Thursday – Sunday, February 21–24 with a weekend option of Friday – Sunday, February 22-24.  Come and work on your own projects with plenty of time for sewing and the companionship of fellow quilters. The setting is beautiful and the food is plentiful and delicious. 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).
