PC Needle Retreat

Come and learn how to get the most out of your Gammill Statler.

Retreat: May 5th - 7th, 2020

Rescheduled For: October 6th - 8th, 2020

We have decided with the growing concern over COVID-19 it would be best to postpone our retreat until the fall in hopes that our lives are back to a more normal time.

The new dates for the retreat are October 6-8, 2020. If you have any questions or concerns please let us know.

If you have any questions please call: 385-645-5401



As we begin 2020 we are excited to announce that PCNeedle Retreat will be bringing you another Longarm Retreat in 2020. This year we are fortunate to be able to bring Joan Knight back for the 5th year, but also welcome Joyce Lundrigan of Methodist Hill Quilt Studio to teach us as well. Joan and Joyce have a great teaching club called “Skill Builder”.

The 2020 Retreat will be May 5th - 7th, 2020 in the Salt Lake Valley.

Join us May 5-7, 2020 for two and a half fun filled days of Statler learning with Joan Knight and Joyce Lundrigan. The price of $500.00 includes classes, lunch and dinner on Tuesday and Wednesday, snacks and lots of fun.

Quilts & Things

Joyce has been operating Methodist Hill Quilt Studio since 2005, shortly after her “retirement” from her job as a finance manager at a Fortune 500 company that developed motion control equipment for many industrial applications. Because of her familiarity with computers and having watched engineers develop motion control applications, she thought her love of quilting and a Statler would be a perfect match to keep her busy in retirement. Not one to shy away from adventure, she dove right in and learned to design patterns using AutoSketch and has been a certified trainer for all versions of CreativeStudio. She especially enjoys designing patterns that take advantage of the many wonderful features of CreativeStudio and sharing her knowledge of the software through her All In One Club and the Skill Builders Club that she does with Joan Knight.
