Stay at Home Retreat - March 2021

Get the best of all worlds! Quilt all day and enjoy the camaraderie of your quilt buddies, learn new stuff and then go home to sleep in your own bed.

When: March 9, 10 & 11, 2021

Location: Arrowsmith Hall, 1014 Ford Road, Coombs

Time: Tuesday and Wednesday: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, Thursday: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Cost: $40

Due to COVID-19 no meals will be served at the March retreat. Please bring bag lunches, your own snack and drinks. We do not have access to the kitchen, so no microwave or fridge and no coffee or tea will be served. Also please bring wipes for your own use.

Cancellation Policy:

A new policy is in effect which was passed at the November 2020 Management Committee. It reads “A non-refundable cancellation fee of $10 will be implemented for Stay At Home Retreats and Workshops.”

This means:

  • If you need to cancel prior to the retreat and your spot can be filled from a wait list you will receive the cost of the retreat minus $10.
  • If you need to cancel prior to the retreat and a replacement cannot be found you will not receive a refund.


We take your safety and the security of your belongings very seriously, but we cannot be liable for any personal injury, loss/theft or damage any time during the retreat. Your attendance constitutes your agreement to indemnify the Parksville Quilt House Quilters’ Guild and Arrowsmith Agricultural Association from any claim for injury, loss or damage for any reason. You are responsible for any damage to retreat property, facilities or equipment caused by you through negligence or willful intent.

Lottery Draw

Because of their popularity, Stay at Home retreats use a lottery method to attend. Once the deadline is reached, all names are put in a box and 20 names are drawn. (Four spots are reserved for members who have never attended a Stay at Home retreat.) Once 20 names are drawn then the remainder are drawn for a waitlist. An email is sent, within two days to the successful members with a date when payment is due. Another email is sent to the members on the waitlist.
