In the center of Melay, Haute-Marne is a covered laundry room, a Lavoir in French.

Our home in Melay overlooks this washhouse. And from 2 Rue de Lavoir, the Quilt Retreat is organized.
There will be quite a bit of work in the coming time and the plan is to welcome you there   in the large salon, the kitchen, the garden and the conservatory.

The fabrics, notions and yarns are on the first floor. So there is still quite a bit to browse in the quilting area during the quilt week.
The Quilt Retreat in 2023 is from Thursday September 14 to Saturday September 23.
The price for the retreat, including 8 nights in our house, is EUR 760.

The program is as follows:
Thursday 14 September

The plan is to meet in Sainte Marie on Thursday between 1 and 3 pm and see about 3 exhibitions.
And then eat in the evening in the B&B near Sainte Marie aux Mînes.
There is a B&B reservation from Thu 14 to Friday 15 September.
Do you want to share a room or your own room this night?

Friday September 15

On Fridays there is also room to view exhibitions and see the stalls.
On Friday we leave for Melay around 3 pm. That is a 2.5 hour drive from Sainte Marie aux Mînes.
