We’re having a pajama party at Lake Okoboji Lutheran Bible Camp and you’re invited! You can wear loose fitting Pj’s with elastic waists and slippers all week. It’s time to call out for large pizzas, crank up the record player, and do each other’s hair. Are you ready to party? And by party, we mean quilt! Bring your favorite quilts to work on and we’ll have some new projects for you to try as well!
We are adding new options:
Cathy Young will help you make a barn board for your house either 12” X 12” ($15.00) or 24” X 24” ($35.00). Everything you need will be supplied.
Robyn Wright will teach you to make leggings or tunics. She has some great sources to buy fabric and find free patterns below. Bring your sergers and coverstitch machines if you have them. There will be machines available if you need one.
Billie Hanson will be here with a bag class and a quilt class.
This will also be a time to finish up your UFO’s or projects you have been wanting to finish. The Quilted Forest will also havemini classes and projects they will offer throughout the entire retreat.
Bring all of your quilting items with you so that you can make yourself at home. We want you to make a schedule that will work for you. Your meals will be made for you. Massages, pedicures and manicures await you. These extras will be offered throughout the weekend.
We all speak "Quilt" so communication should be easy. You can arrive anytime after 4 pm on Wednesday and then stay until the following Sunday afternoon (Weekend Retreat) or Wednesday afternoon (Class Retreat) depending on your departure schedule. We are happy to offer classes each day (Monday through Wednesday) for you to participate in. Patterns and instructions will be posted on the website so you can get started right away choosing your fabrics and cutting out those quilts. If you have any questions we refer you to the teacher’s contact information.
We will have a Sunday Night Project and a Mystery Quilt. (Kits will be available for both) you can also take mini classes offered throughout the weekend to make smaller projects. These quilts and/or projects can be started and finished in a day or less.
The Quilted Forest will once again bring fabric, kits, notions and quilting supplies for your enjoyment. Their shop will be open and available to all of you who are participating in retreat. Shelley will bring in 1,000 bolts of fabric, kits, notions, books and patterns. D’Ann, Shelley’s side kick, will be there as well. It is always so great to have them on site.
Our menu will once again be a Brunch - Dinner meal schedule. If you have dietary concerns please let us know. Chef Kevin will be preparing all of our meals again this year. All meals will be covered with the exception of dinner on Wednesday night. Feel free to bring some treats to share with your fellow retreaters.
You will need to bring linens and towels. Each room has a queen bed and several standard twins.
We will have Show and Tell Monday night and we hope you will all participate in that. We love to see what projects everyone has completed during the year.
We are looking forward to fun filled days, great meals and wonderful and productive sewing sessions. See you in time for the pillow fight.

Each of the websites have instructions regarding download and printing. Be sure you are set to Actual Size or 100%. Double check the 1" square before printing the whole thing. Wastes a lot of paper printing it in the wrong scale. Also, I never print the instruction pages. If you look at the file in a tiled format, you can see which pages you need for the pattern pieces. I follow directions from the open file on my iPad. I download, save, print, and read from Dropbox.
