The guild holds quilting retreats twice a year at the Vina de Lestonnac  Retreat Center in Temecula. The retreats are held in the spring and fall.

The retreats are a wonderful, unstructured opportunity to work on your own projects, make an auction item or get a jump start on holiday items. Additionally, you will get better acquainted with other guild members.

All meals are served in the dining room which is a short walking/driving distance from the classroom. Meals include lunch and dinner day 1, breakfast, lunch and dinner days 2/3 and brunch on Sunday. Sleeping accommodations are air conditioned, private or double rooms close to the classrooms. Handicap accommodations are available on request.

Wanda stopped by to take a sewing break at the retreat.

The classrooms are well lit, large and air conditioned. There is a massage therapist on site during our retreat to minimize our aches and pains ( fee not included in stated prices). Near by wineries and hot air balloons are also a bonus (fee also not included in stated prices). In addition, there are several quilt stores (see list below) and antique vendors in the area.
