Sugarplum Quilts and Patchwork on Parade are excited to announce the details of our upcoming Wallaroo Retreat!
Treat yourself to a little luxury with a fabulous weekend of sewing on the beautiful Copper Coast in South Australia. Imagine waking up by the beach, having a leisurely breakfast on your private verandah before strolling to the stately Wallaroo Town Hall to spend the day doing something you love. Tempting isn't it? Join us for three nights from Thursday 25th - Sunday 28th of February for a fantastic luxury retreat where you will not have to lift a finger except to sew, sew, sew!
Getting There - Wallaroo is an easy 2 hour drive from Adelaide up Port Wakefield Rd and then onto the Yorke Peninsula Highway. Don't drive? No problem. We are happy to put you in touch with other retreaters to arrange car pooling and there is also a reasonably priced bus service to Wallaroo that runs twice daily.
Accommodation - We will be staying in 4 star self-contained beachside villas in the lovely seaside town of Wallaroo. Choose from either a beach front or pool side position. The villas all have a private verandah, two bedrooms (1QS bed, 2 singles - plus another trundle style single), fully equipped kitchen, dining and lounge area, bathroom, toilet and laundry. The villas are set in lovely grounds and there is a heated pool on site.
Catering - The weekend will be fully catered, including snacks and non-alcoholic drinks - except for Saturday night when we will be dining out at a waterfront restaurant. Let us know if you have any special dietary requirements - we are more than happy to accommodate you.
Sewing - We will be stitching the days away in the grand old Wallaroo Town Hall. There will be cutting and ironing stations set up and plenty of room to lay your quilts out. There is even a stage and a couple of pianos if anyone feels the need for some extra entertainment.
Projects - We will be teaching 2 projects or feel free to use the stress-free sewing time to finish off a few UFOs. The projects we will be teaching will both be made using Moda Jelly Rolls and some extra yardage (a Jelly Roll consists of 40 width of fabric strips) and we would love to put a kit together for you. Speak to Sharon about the range of gorgeous fabrics she has in stock (including, Simple Abundance, Rouenneries, Aster Manor and more) and your specific fabric requirements. The projects will be announced in a couple of weeks - but trust us - they are gorgeous!
Don't Quilt? No problem, we are open to retreaters of all craft denominations - bring along your projects be they knitting, scrapbooking, card making or whatever and enjoy the time to create.
Shop - What is a quilting retreat without a bit of retail therapy? Patchwork on Parade will have a shop on site with a wide range of tempting fabrics, patterns, nifty notions, giftware and more.
Prices start from $398 per person all inclusive for Poolside Accommodation based on 4 share.

Hope to see you there!
