The newly-built center is located in Racine, WI, right on Lake Michigan – and it’s gorgeous. Our group reserves the largest retreat room in the facility, the Oak Room, which allows us plenty of space to let our creativity run wild!
Retreats include lodging and food; you have your own private room with private bathroom, and meals are provided in the center’s dining room. We also have a fully-equipped kitchenette off of the sewing room with fridge, stove, coffee pots, kettles, and dishwasher. You’re welcome to bring food/snacks/drinks to have and share.
Some people enjoy sewing and visiting at a leisurely pace; others come with a list and a desire to get things done! It’s a fun time for all.
This year’s retreat will have two options for Chicago Modern Quilt Guild members who choose to participate:

The good news is that we’ve been communicating with the Siena Center about end times going forward, and have been assured that the next three retreats (through Spring of 2019) will will have an end time of .
