See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Improve your quilting skills and learn the history of this beloved craft while making your own two-block quilt top alongside fellow quilters. Whether you are a novice or an experienced quilter, you will benefit from expert instruction and enjoy nightly presentations on a variety of related topics, as well as hands-on sewing demonstrations. Learn tips for keeping yourself healthy and dexterous while quilting, take part in daily exercise and enjoy sumptuous cuisine prepared by a noted chef.


Highlights

• Visit three local quilt shops and enjoy a picnic in a park en route through the Snake River Plain.
• Take in presentations on quilts in the American West, how quilt blocks got their names and more.
• Participants receive fabric kits composed of traditional, batik or bright fabrics in colors of their choice.

Program Notes

Make a medallion for the center of your quilt and borders to enhance the center. Besides focusing on the technique of turned edge applique by machine using monofilament thread, additional instruction will include how to cut and fit borders in a variety of situations. Beginners can work on the medallion and the more advanced can design appropriate borders to be attached to the medallion they have already made.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Minimal walking and standing on this program. All outings are optional. Personal sewing machines welcome. Rentals available for $25 for the week. Fabric provided.

Coordinated by Benedictine Monastery of the Ascension.
