West side Quilters

One of the many benefits of Westside Quilter’s Guild membership is the opportunity to attend 3-day retreats. WQG has hosted retreats at several popular venues which include: the Girl Scout Retreat Center in North Plains, Alton Collins in Eagle Creek, and of course our annual retreat to Oregon Garden Resort in Silverton. We are always exploring new venue options. We hold 2-3 retreats per year.

Note re: Online Registration: Important!! Please read…

As you are registering for any retreat please be aware that our refund policy allows you to refund your deposit or any amount you have paid until the day before final payment is due. You will be required to make a minimum payment of $50 but are welcome make a larger payment or to pay the balance in full at the time of registration. At initial registration by online form Carol Sayles will contact you and direct you to the correct links for payment(s).

If you need to change your plans after that date, you are welcome to transfer your seat to someone on the waiting list and can do so by contacting Carol Sayles directly at or by calling her phone number in your current Directory.

Retreat Cancellation Policy

If a participant finds it necessary to cancel, they need to contact the registrar as soon as possible so the seat may potentially be offered to someone else. 
Each venue has specific requirements and dates.  The final cancellation date with full refund will be published as soon as it is known.  After that date  no refund will be issued unless it is for major medical reasons or close family deaths. However, the member cancelling may gift or sell their space to the next person on the waiting list. If there is not a waiting list they can gift or sell to a person of their choosing.
