Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?

Join us for a festive two day retreat at Mannum, South Australia to celebrate Christmas in July!

When: We have two weekends available -

Friday 2nd of July - Sunday 4th of July


Friday 16th of July - Sunday 18th of July

Where: The Pumphouse at Mannum on the Murray River

Getting There : Mannum is just over an hour's drive from the Adelaide GPO and is situated on the Murray River. Don't drive? No problem - let us put you in touch with your fellow retreaters to arrange some car pooling.

Accommodation : We will be stitching in the historic "Pumphouse" situated in the grounds of the Mannum Caravan Park where you can enjoy FREE accommodation in the bunkhouse in a dorm-style share room, sleeping 4 in bunk beds. Alternatively, we can arrange for you to stay in a deluxe cabin with an ensuite - this type of accommodation will incur an additional cost.

Catering : the weekend will be fully catered, including breakfast, lunch, morning and afternoon teas on both days, non-alcoholic drinks (BYO welcome) and dinner on the Friday night - we've booked a table at the riverfront Pretoria Hotel for a traditional Christmas dinner on Saturday night.

Projects: A gorgeous Christmas Sack, an Advent Calendar and two lovely Table Runners (pictures will be available in early June)
Feel free to bring your own projects and get a head-start for your Christmas giving.

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 relax and 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.

Cost : This retreat is $200.00 all inclusive (with the exception of dinner on Saturday night). Contact Sharon on 0411 268 924 for more information and to secure your booking.
