Are you going to be in the Michigan area in June? Check out the Sistah Quilters of the Great Lakes African American Quilting Network. Their quilt retreat is scheduled for June 8-10, 2007 at the Colmbiere Retreat Center in Clarkston, MI.

Saturday will be filled with one or two hour classes. The day will be capped with a Show and Tell event .. and Shhhhh Silent Auction. Sunday morning will also included classes followed by a last day lunch. The teachers during the retreat weekend will include: Wanda Nash, Shirley Talley, Kaye Whittington, Marian Coakley, Carolyn Bunkley, Verona Williams, Letha Anderson, Amy Powell, Sharon Ray, Cynthia Varnado, and Carolynne White.
