    Cool MSQC 2018 FALL FORUM RETREAT REGISTRATION INFORMATION

    MSQC 2018 FALL FORUM RETREAT SCHEDULE

    PLEASE READ THROUGH THE WHOLE POST. There are important details and some changes from previous years.

    Check in for the 2018 Fall Forum Retreat will start at noon on Sunday, September 23 at the MSQC Retreat Center and all attendees will be expected to depart by 11AM on Thursday Sept 27th. Please do not arrive early for check-in – the MSQC staff will be cleaning it and setting up for our retreat on Sunday. Main check-in will be from noon to 2:30PM on Sunday. Mini-classes will start at 3:30 PM on Sunday. Sunday’s lunch will be on your own. Subway, Casey’s, and the grocery store in Hamilton are open on Sunday for you to get something to eat.

    The 2018 Fall Forum Retreat Registration fees are as follows. They include 11 meals (Sunday evening through Thursday morning), MSQC demonstrations, mini-classes from our fabulous forum members, activities, Retreat Scavenger Hunt and T-Shirt. We will have a maximum of 40 spaces for quilters.

    $400 for a dorm style twin bed (2nd floor)

    $200 for Commuters***

    Free Sewing Machine Rental for the entire event (20 available)
    Free "Sewing Essentials" kits available to rent (cutting mat, rotary cutter, ruler and scissors) (20 available)

    ***Commuters – There will be only two commuter tickets. We do ask that commuters leave by 11 PM each night so doors can be locked. Doors will be unlocked by 7AM each morning.

    Your ticket number refers to which room and bed you will be staying in. If you are wanting to room with specific people, please register at the same time.

    What to expect:
    All Activities are optional. Please remember that MSQC will be closed on Sunday.
    We will be doing a show and tell each night, a charity quilt (we ask that each attendee bring $5 to help cover the cost of the supplies), group picture, daily attendance drawings, and an “I don’t want it, you can have it table”. Daily attendance prize drawings – please bring ONE item to donate for the daily attendance prize. We will do these drawings Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wed evenings. For our Sunday game, please bring a layer cake or a jelly roll that is gift wrapped. We will not be doing favors this year. Tuesday is pajama day for anyone wishing to stay in their pjs – prizes will be awarded. There are several fun activities that are being put together for everyone to enjoy including the chance to win a quilt top. Be sure to see Jenny at the MSQC 10th Birthday Bash as Jenny will be unavailable to attend the retreat.

    There will be no structured classes presented by Missouri Star but mini-classes and presentations by other forum members will be scheduled periodically throughout the event. The supply list for these classes can be found on the Missouri Star Forum - 2018 Fall Forum Group and on the Eventbrite retreat page. This list will be updated as we add and finalize the classes. This is your retreat so feel free to participate in as many or few activities as you wish. Many people bring their own projects to work on. You may not want to take a class and if you choose not to do this you will want to bring projects to work on. Your free time is your own to do as you please. We will have demonstrations and optional mini classes throughout the retreat. You can participate in these classes if you wish. You can shop an MSQC shop or browse through one of the area stores. There is always something to do in Hamilton.

    In order for it to be a peaceful, relaxing environment for everyone, we will be following the MSQC policy of using headphones/earbuds if you wish to listen to music or watch a video on your computer, etc.

    There will be a 2018 Fall Forum Group on the Missouri Star Forum that will be open to those who are registered. Please be patient as we coordinate those who are registered to be invited to the group. We will have discussion threads about what to expect, what to bring, how to get the most out of a retreat, and many other threads. It will be the place to ask questions about the retreat and get to know others who will be attending the retreat. (If you have questions but are not registered, please feel free email lucinda.morris@missouriquiltco.com)

    Sewing tables - Each person will have their own 2 foot by 4 foot table. Due to limited space, we ask that you do not bring your own tables except for TV trays. If you need your personal sewing chair, feel free to bring it. The retreat center does have design walls by the sewing tables. We do have assigned seating for sewing. If you are traveling with friends and would like to sit together to sew, please contact: Cindy at MSQC - lucinda.morris@missouriquiltco.com or PM me here on the forum.

    Meals – Continental Breakfast will be served Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings at 7 am. The daily lunch and dinner are served at 12 pm and 6 pm. Meals are served buffet style. There is a huge kitchen counter where the food is presented at scheduled times. Usually, lunch and dinner consists of a main dish and several sides plus a dessert. Vegetarian options are available. If you don't make it at the time food is served, you will need to find something else to eat. (There are several restaurants in town plus a grocery store.). You are on your own to enjoy the area food if you wish to do that. Please note that there will not be lunch served on Sunday. Subway, Casey’s, and the grocery store in Hamilton are open on Sunday for you to get something to eat.

    Snack Table - There will be a snack sharing table. Feel free to bring your own favorite munchies or special non-alcoholic drinks to share. There is coffee, tea, water, and ice available for us. We do have use of the kitchen area except when the meals are being served. The kitchen has a refrigerator, oven, microwave, and dishwasher that we can use. If you have a favorite cup you like to use, please consider bring it. (Retreat Center has gone to all paper products.) Please be considerate to others and clean up after you use the kitchen.

    Show & Tell - We will have a Show & Tell time each night for those who want to participate.
    Shipping - There is free shipping for all of our guests who spend over $100 in the shops.

    MSQC is going to keep the retreat private so it will just be our group. Registration will be available until about a week before the retreat.
    So you will need to use this link to reach the registration page https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fall-fo...ts-42017420235 The code to see the retreat is FF2018

    We signed up yesterday and I think Amanda has her projects planned already, I am still undecided although today's tutorial seemed like it might be nice.

    Just for a bit of clarification, the registration page says checkout is by 11 on Wed. but we do have the extra day and check out is Thursday, is this correct? Also the evenbright page says that supplies needed include those for a Town Square quilt, but we are not getting a class on this are we? Getting pretty excited!
