Northwest Quilters' Fall Retreat
October 14 - 17, 2021

Time to register for the Northwest Quilters’ Fall Retreat at Tilikum Retreat Center. Attendance is limited to 32 in order to assure everyone a lower bunk for sleeping. The Fall Retreat is usually well attended so early registration is recommended.


Tilikum Retreat Center is just five miles outside of Newberg, Oregon in a beautiful location with comfortable accommodations, great food, and a very caring staff.  The 92 acre campus is surrounded by vineyards and hazelnut orchards which will be in full fall color. Tilikum grounds offer hiking trails around a large lake and the retreat center offers great fall vistas from many locations.

Fee for this option is $240.00.  Included are 8 meals, Thursday dinner, a full breakfast, plus lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday, and brunch on Sunday.  (2) Arrive Friday October 15th after lunch for a fee of $205.00. Included are 5 meals: Friday dinner, all meals on Saturday, and brunch on Sunday. Whichever option you chose, a great time begins when you arrive with your high spirits ready for a fun filled productive time.
