Welcome to our Southern Belle Fall Retreat!
2019 will be our 8th year! Each year we have added more students, expanded our schedule, made new friends, and learned so much about quilting and using Creative Studio at it's very best. We love our Belles and our retreats have become very much a reunion from year to year.
Payment: Full Registration of $495 includes goody bag, reception, 3 days of classes, meals, quilt shop, quilt show, and Show and Tell. Deposit $200 to hold your space. Remainder due July 1. Guest Package $200 Includes meals, reception, quilt show, and Show and Tell. Refund minus PayPal fees are given if you cancel before July 1, 2019.
If our registration becomes full, please consider adding your name to our waiting list. We find every year that some people need to cancel and others move up. There is no need to pay a deposit until your spot is confirmed.
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. Please read our newsletter for important information on events.
Below please find the payment link, registration form, and our current student list. After making your deposit, please return to this page to fill out the registration form to give us your information, emergency contact, and dietary restrictions.

Belle Charms and Pins
Our Belle pins have been a favorite item and we are offering them again this year, along with a two-sided charm that can be added to a Pandora bracelet, necklace, or any other way you might want to show you are a Belle.
Pins and charms must be ordered in advance and will be paid for at our registration table when you check in. We do not mail pins, but if you know a Belle who cannot be here this year, you may order one for her and pay when you pick it up.
We can keep the prices the same as previous years; $65 if we order in volume. Both of these were made as suggestions from our Belles and we expect them to sell quickly. We're hoping you love them as much as we love all our Belles. Our last date to have them made is August 1.
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 July 1 will not receive a refund but will be moved to our 2020 calendar.
If your guest cannot come with you, those meals can be cancelled and refunded up to 2 weeks ahead.
If you have not filled out a registration form online, please do so asap. We need your dietary and contact information.
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.
