The 1876 Centennial Quit Project      Lecture with Powerpoint and Quilts   $400.

1876 Intensive Boot Camp                  2 or 3 Day Workshop   $1300 - $1950   
Begin your 1876 Quilt with an intensive 2-3 day workshop. Plan your quilt, select fabrics, learn a variety of cutting and
sewing techniques, take home several finished blocks. Connect with fellow ‘76ers.

1876 Retreat                                         5 day Retreat      $3000.
Spend five days with your fellow ‘76ers learning how to bring all of your blocks and borders together into a completed top.
Once the 74 blocks are done there is still a ways to go; making the pieced borders, setting the blocks and putting everything together can be challenging, but, oh so worth the effort! Diligent sewers will be able to complete their top by the end of the week.
