QUILT CAMP 2021!!!!
Hello fellow quilters.
Quilt camp is coming up! Finally, we have enough information to feel like we can make some plans that we can hopefully keep!
The dates are set, November 10-14. We will be returning to The Firs, in Bellingham. Cost is on the registration form that is attached, but basically, things have gone up a bit, 4 nights/12 meals is $317 double, $397 single. You can sign up for a day pass ($25), 2, 3 or 4 nights, rates vary accordingly. The Firs is actually giving us a deal because we are returning customers.
After some discussion, here are some steps we can take to make sure those of us who want to have an in person camp will be as safe as possible:
The Firs requires that everyone who comes needs to be fully vaccinated. No wiggle room here, The Firs requires that each of us presents our immunization card to them. All of their staff are vaccinated as well.
Even if vaccinated, please don’t come if you are sick or have been exposed to someone who has had any Covid symptoms in the past week.
Tables will be set as far apart as possible. If people need to be closer than 6 feet apart, then we all need to wear masks while indoors and not eating.
We will have a snack table, but food needs to be eaten outside of the main room.
We will be the only group present at meals.
There will be a buffet line, but we can have designated servers.
Anyone have portable room air filters? If those of us that have them can bring them, that cant hurt, eh?
If things go nuts, we can cancel at The Firs right up to November 3.
Any other suggestions? Please let me know.
Registration is open as of now. Please bring $50 with the attached form to to the annual meeting or send it to RQAG, POB 45, Friday Harbor, post marked by OCTOBER 9, our annual meeting date. ( If you dont have access to printer, just make something up with the required information.)
There are scholarships available, please call/contact Nancy or Krispi if you would like assistance. And dont be shy, we value you, our friends, and want to see as many of your smiling faces as care to come!
