As many of you already know, we have several special events planned during this year’s retreat, which will include a quilt show, a catered luncheon, a special class on color. To that end, we have added a “Quilt Pattern Hunt”. We thought the pattern hunt would be an excellent way to get our retreat participants out and about in our community, encouraging them to visit the many interesting and unique businesses within the Marlinton area. More information about the participating shops, locations, business hours, etc., will be provided on Thursday and Friday morning.
So here’s the scoop. The “Quilt Pattern Hunt” will consist of 12 different quilt block patterns and each selected business will have one of the twelve block patterns available at their establishment. “Pattern Hunters” will have to acquire all twelve quilt block patterns to be eligible for the grand prize drawing. Participating business have added unique items to be included in the grand prize basket.
We hope retreat participants will enjoy this event and take the time to visit the unique and interesting businesses within our town.
