2017 was a blast as always, with much sewing, collaborating, socializing, and general merriment.
This is a quick update to let you know that there will NOT be a 2018 mid-atlantic MOD retreat. We know there will be many quilters disappointed upon hearing this news, but sadly, it's just not gonna happen.
However, we do intend to come back again in April 2019 and we'll keep you posted as soon as we know dates.
If you have interest in helping with the organizing of the retreat, please contact us and let us know.
Thanks for your support these last 4 years and we hope to see you in Lancaster again!

We will be having two different swaps this year at MOD. You can take part in one, both, or none at all - you will have a blast at Mid Atlantic MOD no matter what!
In 2014, we swapped tote bags featuring Essex Linen, and in 2015 and 2016, we swapped mini quilts. This year, we will be swapping sewing themed bags!
Sewing Themed Bag Swap
There are no official signups for this swap - just bring it to the retreat and you'll come home with one! The exchange is random so you are not making the bag for anyone specific.
Here is a Pinterest board with lots of ideas. Go crazy! Use your creativity!
