YCMA Crafters Weekend

We are hosting a Crafters Weekend in November and I wanted to pass along information regarding this event, as it may be of interest to the members of the Edmonton and District Quilters Guild.


Crafters Weekend, hosted at Camp Yowochas from November 17th-19th, 2017, is an opportunity to enjoy a weekend at camp with other people working on crafting projects. It will be a great chance to get away, enjoy great food and various camp activities, and work on any crafts you were hoping to complete before the holidays.


The cost to register is $150 per participant and includes accommodations, meals, and optional outdoor programming.


This is an 18+ event, as we will be hosting a wine and cheese social on the first evening.


To register, visit our website at http://www.ywcayowochas.org/, or give us a call at 780-892-2660.

New Private Retreat Facility

Hello Fellow Quilters,

My name is Keltie Masters and like yourself, I too love quilting, needlepoint and just about anything that allows my creativity to flow!  Because of this passion I would like to introduce you to a new venture that earlier this year, my husband Stan and I, decided to share with others. This being our beautiful TimberKings “Back to Nature Retreat” located in the serene foothills of the Canadian Rockies. We are situated on 5 acres of treed forest just south of Water Valley, which is just an hour northwest of Calgary, along Hwy #22, otherwise known as the Cowboy Trail. 


Being a quilter myself, a lot of detail and consideration was put into planning our luxury retreat, and therefore is the perfect place for a private retreat, whether it’s for quilting, crafting or just a girls’ getaway. Our facility accommodates up to 8 guests, and we require only a minimum of 5 guests for a retreat.  Due to our small size this allows us time to pamper you and meet your every need.  We also have massage, spa services and fun intuitive readings available as an add-on to enhance your experience while staying with us.   


We offer a “Tea & Tour” for anyone who would like to come and check out our facilities, as we would love to show you around.  


As wildlife photographers ourselves you will find yourself immersed in nature inside and out, and who knows you may even be greeted by some of our local wildlife! 


To set up a Tea & Tour, just give us a call and we would love to set a date with you … the tea will be steeping!

For more information, please feel free to check out our website: www.backtonatureretreat.com or our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/backtonatureretreat, or call us for more info J


Be sure to watch for us in the New Year editions of Country Register as we look forward to sharing with you the opportunity to “Relax, Refresh & Reconnect at Back to Nature.”


Warm Regards,

Keltie & Stan Masters
