WORLAND - Three area quilting businesses partnered up to sponsor a quilting retreat and class last weekend in Worland.

Worland quilter Carol Throntveit sews a piece of her paper piece for her quilt during the Worland quilting retreat Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019, at the Worland Community Center. The retreat went through Saturday, March 2.

Marcy Buckman of Heart-N-Home in Worland coordinated the retreat with Lauren Andrist of Powell's Redlight Quilting. The three-day retreat at the Worland Community Center provided 13 quilters the opportunity to work on their quilting pieces in the company of other quilters and without the distractions they may face at their homes.

Buckman and Andrist then enlisted the aid of Lauren Rogers of Back Door Quilts in Billings to offer a three-day paper-piecing class, also Thursday through Saturday at the community center. There were four students in the class last week

The hope is to make the retreat a semiannual event with one in the spring and one in the fall.

The nine quilters participating in the retreat said it was an opportunity to "get out of the house," "get things done with no distractions," and "girl time"; "a time to bond with other quilters."
