A new year, a new location! Our 2019 retreat will be held at the historic Arlington Hotel in Hot Springs.
If you have already registered and paid your deposit, all you need to do is call the Arlington and book your room. They are holding singles, doubles, and suites for us. Be sure to say you are with Southern Belle so you will get our special group rate.
For those already planning to attend, all room reservations at DeGray have been cancelled; you do not need to contact them.
If you have not made plans to join us next spring, but would like to, please see below for registration and payment. Currently both weeks are full, but you can add your name to the waiting list and we will let you know if space becomes available. Or, if you want to join us sooner, there are still openings in our Fall retreat at DeGray lake in September of this year. We look forward to having you join us for this new adventure. Making Belle bigger and better every year!
March 28-31 April 4-7

We find every year that some people need to cancel and others move up. If you are on the waiting list, there is no need to pay a deposit until your spot is confirmed.
We begin with Registration on Thursday afternoon and a reception in the evening. Classes are scheduled Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until noon. Our schedule is always a mix of software classes, design inspiration and how-to, special projects, quilt challenge, show and tell, and fun. Joan and I don't write our specific lesson plans until just a few months out since we want the information to be the most current we can offer.
Deposit and Registration are two different steps. Please return to this page after clicking Submit above to make your deposit below. Names not automatically added to list. We will add your name as soon as possible

We know that unexpected things can happen in our lives and we occasionally have someone who will not be able to join us. Anyone having to cancel after February 1 will not receive a refund but will be moved to our 2019 calendar.
If your guest cannot come with you, those meals can be cancelled and refunded up to 2 weeks ahead.
Designer Policy We welcome designers to join us at Southern Belle as students. Designers will be introduced during our reception and may put a quarter page B&W advertisement/discount coupon in our handout booklet at no charge.
Designers wishing to stay for both weeks to meet and socialize with all of our Belle students may join us by paying only a guest fee for the additional week. This will allow access to our reception, show and tell, quilt shop, quilt show, hospitality room, and our Saturday evening program, but not to the classroom sessions a second time. Student week and Guest week can be scheduled in either order, depending on availability and which group you prefer.
Every year we have a complaint or two about distractions or interruptions during class time. In order to provide for a better learning environment for everyone during class, we ask that you keep your personal conversations to a minimum so that students sitting near you can hear the presentations. Everyone wants to see and hear what is being offered and we want your attention, too.
We understand that no one travels these days without a cell phone to keep in touch with family. And, we do encourage you to bring your laptops for use after class to practice new techniques or to study pattern choices and share ideas with others.
But, please, no use of cell phones or laptops during class time. If there is a need for an emergency phone conversation, please take it out to the hallway. And due to safety concerns with laptop cords, we ask you to schedule your your laptop time after class.
Also, because some of our students have problems/allergies with fragrances, we ask that you be thoughtful about this as you get ready for the day.
